This happens for me most often with the label dialog but it's basically erasing with select similar would be one or two more input actions.
But what surprised me was how snappy the dialog is and how the film hangs together well because of it.
Keep it up, itâ€™s what we call dialogâ€¦itâ€™s a good thing.
(BTW - this kind of dialog is exactly what I like about Publicola.)
Their dialog is hilarious, and dead-on for two guys who have known each other forever, long enough to give each other a line of bull about each and every subject.
Anyway, the dialog is more comfortable on the SCA/Valkyrie end of the story than on the modern end (contractions: they are our friends), but the forging and the fighting balance that out for sure.
The writers of this show understand that dialog is characterization (among other things), and so when you have a character like Omar who doesn't say a word that would turn a hair on my grandmother's head, you know something about Omar other than that the network wouldn't let him talk differently, because it's HBO, so of course the network would.
There are actual plots, the dialog is meant to reveal character and move the story along, and there are characters to play.
The dialog is poorly written as far as the predictability and the somewhat artificial flow.
The dialog is razor sharp between them as they get to know each other and gradually fall for each other in a way neither expected or initially wanted, yet nothing in the book feels contrived or tacked on.
