HERE BE SPOILERS - DON'T GO IF YOU DON'T WANNA KNOW
I would like a topic for discussing editing without worrying about affecting posters who want to remain unspoiled. I'm as interested in how the editing works as anyone. A lot about this season is spoiled, but observations made this season will be useful in the future.
I am not one of those who thinks I can predict the course of the game by the editing, so it is not important to me be unspoiled. (Veruca really can see how the characters will evolve, and amazes me.)
I just want to analyze how they are telling the story, the same as I would in a class where I've already read the book and we're discussing how it was written. OTOH, I believe it is possible to separate out stuff that would have struck you regardless of what you already knew, and I do think it's useful to record first impressions. When I watch the show the first time around, I am often amazed by how different it looks than what I imagined, even with spoilage.
I don't have time today to do a big analysis of Episodes 1, 2, or 3. Please do contribute whatever you wish. I do have questions to throw out.
We know that Na Onka and Kelly S are going to quit near the end of the game. Do you think that their early edits are different because of what they did later? Kelly Purple has been somewhat invisible. Is that due to her personality, or is she being punished for her sin?
First, I have no information whatsoever on who gets the votes. The only hint by missyae is that it may not go as we expect in terms of who gets whose votes.
a) What about Sash? We are three episodes in and we don't see much of him. Has there ever been a F3 player this UTR in the first three eps?
b) Chase is not being edited as very game savvy. But could his arc be more complex?
c) What do you think of Jud's edit? No question that we're supposed to find him entertaining, but does he seem too blonde for the win? As I said in the topic, I like to compare Jud to the Scarlet Pimpernel -- in a joking way, as I don't believe Jud is in that class of smarts. If you're asking, who??? -- the SP hid his true identity by pretending to have only the most superficial concerns on his mind. How to wear his clothes, making up silly rhymes for entertainment, basically the whole court thought he was a buffoon and an idiot, so he was overlooked by those seeking the identity of the mastermind. Jud is no mastermind, but he is deliberately playing the buffoon.
Look forward to seeing what you have to say.
If you want to double-post what you write for the original editing topic, that is fine too. The difference here is that if you want to make an observation based on information you have, you are free to speak.
