That …

… was freakin incredible.

It begins with typical TV direction, the usual two-shots and over-the-shoulders.

And before I realized it, it ramped up to feature film direction.

Some of Egilsson’s fantastic shots:

I hope writer Studler appreciates what the hell Egilsson did. He polished the hell out of that script.

I don’t know how long it took to film that episode, but the time was worth it.

Network executives: “He spent time getting close-ups of hands?”

Shut the fuck up.
