Warning! Visual spoilers ahead. Don’t go further until you’ve seen the episode.
… 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:
He has a thing for hands …
And he loves mirrors:
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.
