Bitter Script Reader stops by to talk about the Internet echo chamber, "crap plus one," rape scenes in screenplays, lesbians on television, and Bitter's love for Brians Scully's script Merciful. Plus, we take our first trip through the mailbag and ask Maggie and Bitter how they got started reading scripts professionally.

Our character spotlight this week is Lee Holloway from the film Secretary.

Emily would like to remind you that her short film Tenspotting is still not fully funded, so please contribute to her Kickstarter so she can go make a movie.
