The Geek and Sundry Twitch show "Drama Club Heroes" reads failed movie scripts. These are usually terrible scripts. which get mocked for being boring or the characters having no motivations. For a change of pace, they decided to take a crack at Whedon's (unused) script for Wonder Woman.
The stream for this show starts at 7pm PST. The first 50-60 minutes of the show is usually news and comic book comments, with the last two hours being the script read, radio style. The plan is three parts, with the conclusion next week. (The live stream is free; seeing last week's archived broadcast requires subscribing to G&S Twitch channel.)
There is still time for things to go pear-shaped in the next two readings, but they really liked the script so far (especially compared to the usual nonsense they deal with). Off the top of my head, these were the reactions I could remember from last week:
- They liked the scene breaks. (After a pithy and wicked comment by Diana, one of the readers added "And that's how you end a scene!")
- They oooed and aahhed a lot at the bad-ass moments that were given to the characters, especially since it fit their personalities and the situations.
- They still poked fun at spots. "We get it, all the Amazons are gorgeous." And they kept bringing up Diana being "elemental".
- They laughed at the humor. I think the biggest laugh was when Steve was awaiting the promised merciful execution. Diana strolls in with jungle animals to intimidate the other Amazons, and Steve starts freaking out when he says that being eaten by panthers is neither swift nor painless.
