Craig and John take a brief look at the misguided Girls backlash and complaints about nepotism in Hollywood, before segueing to a bigger discussion of spec scripts and positioning:

  • What are “spec farms,” and how can you avoid them?

  • What should you do if you and your reps/producers disagree about whether your script is ready to send out?

  • Is it a good idea to post your script online?

  • How should you introduce characters in an ensemble? How many is too many?
