In the run-up to our Talking TV Drama Event on October 17th/18th in Galway city, we’re asking our 14 guests some questions about themselves, just so we all get to know them a bit better before they hit the West Coast!
We’ll be releasing the answers everyday here on our website so watch this space. For more details on the seminar, click HERE.
Today, Shane Perez, Galway-based screenwriter , fills us in on his TV viewing habits!
First TV Job
An HBO show that got cancelled before it even got started.
First TV Memory
The Moon Landing. Either that or someone getting a screwdriver in the back on the soap opera my Mom used to watch. Not sure which one came first.
Favourite TV Character
Tie. Archie Bunker for comedy. For drama, Frank Pembleton, the template for all complex David Simon characters to come.
Guilty TV Pleasure
At the moment, Blue Bloods. You can write the plot of each episode on the back of a postage stamp, but watching Tom Selleck is like pulling on a pair of old, comfortable slippers.
Are you ‘a boxset- watch in one-go’ or ‘tune in every week’ person?
One-go. Love it. The current Netflix model is now attempting to make everyone one-go.
