"Heart of Steel", Part One, Act Two (Part Six)

This is a posting of pages 66-78. This section of Act Two was boarded by Michael Goguen

Tensions mount, weirdness increases. It probably comes as no shock to learn that Hardac is this story’s version of Hal, the sentient computer from “2001: A Space Odyssey”. In this case, the first overt “tell” is scenes B93-B96 where Rossum halts in mid-sentence to shoot a look at Hardac, almost as if asking permission to speak. I like the way the script didn’t unload everything at once, letting hints, clues and foreshadowing to unfold gradually. Again, hats off to the episode’s writer, Brynn Stevens.

IMBD says, “Brynne Chandler is a writer best known for her work as a writer and/or story editor on action/adventure-oriented animated television series such as Gargoyles (1994), Batman: The Animated Series (1992), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987), and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983). She was nominated for an Emmy award for her work on "Batman", and was at one point the highest-paid female animation writer working in Hollywood.

Well. Who knew? (Not me, until just now.)
