Lindsey and I had an opportunity to be interviewed by HerShe Magazine recently. They cut together a great interview, in which we talk about the origins of the show, casting, interacting with the audience and of course season three. Watch and hear how excited we are about season three!

First of all; GREAT interview! Boy those were some tight lips at the end! A phenomena I’m all too familiar with. HEY, this had clips from Season 3 in it! That REALLY makes my night. You make me want to make a web series in this interview, and I totally don’t want to make a web series. Maybe if I was as efficient as Jason. SO excited about the production upgrades and changes in attack. Now I must vent about my girls, and the rest. Lindsey played her character too well and drove me into the arms of Caitlynne, so she’s guilty of acting too flawlessly. I’ve had time to mellow on Vanessa, and despite how badly I want Claire to win the joy of a life with Rose, I can now see how perfect Vanessa would be with Rose. I can see it in the depths of Vanessa’s eyes, also due to Lindsey acting up a storm. I can’t praise one without the others so: Kate Conway. If someone must be a lead, it is clearly her. She’s a natural pinnacle. She draws you in, makes you love her, and makes you want the character to be real so you can go find her, hug her, and help her. She is also the glue that holds the show and the story together. I don’t know if it’s acting or just Kate herself, but I love her, and am likely in love with her, which I think is a natural reaction to the show, and to know Kate is to love her. Let’s face facts, she’s perfect. Did I mention her acting is great? Both rehearsed and improvised. Great. Caitlynne Medrek; even though I’m more sympathetic these days toward Vanessa, I’m still team Claire. There’s a loneliness beneath Claire’s bubbly excitement. Although I think she’s more equipped to make herself happy without help than the other two characters, there’s a need in her that’s somehow deeper. That’s not an easy acting feat, but it’s been delivered, for anyone who’s willing to watch it. And anyone who knows Caitlynne in person, or has seen her ISA acceptance speech, knows that there should be a Caitlynne Medrek in every home, like the best stuffed animal in the world. She’s like excitement and heart took physical form. Will Conlon was the perfect, most believable Dad to face the task of always saying and doing the right thing when that’s impossible. I’m extremely loyal to his acting and the character he created, but I’m nonetheless incredibly excited to see Jonathan’s take on that role. I haven’t seen any of his work in action, I’m just imagining what it will be like. Strange at first, then awesome shortly after, I would guess. And Corey just looks like you spent huge money and hired a big veteran name actor. If I was in Canada, I would help around the set. And every day you would all say, “Wow, what a huge help Rick was today.” I hope the show goes at least 7 seasons, like ST:TNG did, which IS possible, because these characters need to grow up and get apartments and face LOTS more life. If I could make you all rich, I would. And then I would hope no one kills themselves, speeding in your expensive hot rods.
It was great listen to the interview, granted I had to watch it twice, cause the first time I got distracted by listening to Covered by Uh Huh Her in the background. At first I thought I had music playing.
