i came up with over a dozen ideas for possible episode ideas, but narrowed it down to 2. i double checked various episode guides online just to make sure my ideas haven’t already been done. then i sent the ideas to a bunch of friends and asked which they liked better.
i got good feedback but the response was split right down the middle, so i ended up going with the idea inspired by something that i actually experienced.
next i need to find and read actual scripts from show to see how they’re structured. movie scripts are fairly easy to find online, but tv scripts seem to be more difficult. i only found 2 scripts for The Office, but i’d like to have more to refer to.
