Craig, John, and Aline record the 200th episode of Scriptnotes live with a worldwide audience listening in — and chiming in — as they discuss TV showrunning and whether quality really counts at the box office.
Then it’s time for listener questions, ranging from presidential plagiarism to locked drafts.
