This weeks Mark at the Movies might have been the funniest show in recent memory. As far as in it's history it is by far in the Top 3. I am so thankful to Mark, Rachel, Anna, Heather, Brooke, Big Al, and Brian for allowing me to sit in behind the scenes as the taping took place this week.
The opening skit with Big Al was done so well you would think it was produced by a Hollywood Producer/Director. Big Al appeared larger than life on film but in reality Big Al is larger than life in heart and mind.
Once the crew started talking about X-men it was Brian who brought the laughter with his statement that Hugh Jackman looked good after talking about seeing Hugh's butt. Hugh then gave Brian a bottle of energy drink and did not plan to open it but Mark did making for yet another funny moment. I will say this about Brian he NAILED the interviews so well. Nice job.
Dariany Santana joined the show from the French Can Film Festival talking about How to Train your Dragon 2. Dariany is so awesome in so many ways. As far as How to train your dragon I can't help but to remember one of Mark's sons interviewing for the first Dragon movie. It was either Carson or Jackson who talked about farts making for a hilarious interview.
Mark handled the interviews with Adam and Drew for Blended but it was Brooke who talked to Disney star Bella. Brooke has come so far in her career.
This show had so much laughter it hurt watching. Not hurt in a bad way but my stomach muscles from laughing so hard.
During the Pompeii on DVD talk was yet another good time with Rachel's crush for Kit Harrington and the odd Mark S. Allen Handshake during the course of the interviews.
Next week is going to be a special show not like the Special edition type shows but with what is taking place next week. I don't know if much will be made of it on the show but I assure you I will be talking about it. But that is next week and for this week again I want to say Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone at Mark at the Movies for treating me like I am a part of their family. When I do visit the show I am not there to get in the way but to learn. What I learned this visit was during junket interviews you are only allowed 5-7 minutes to get your questions out but try to save that one GREAT question for last so time runs over with the stars answer.
I was in the studio audience this week and here are some photos from behind the scenes that I took during the set up and filming of Mark at the Movies Episode 243.
