Thanks, Don!

Well, from my reads so far, I am pretty confident that this is going to be a scoring challenge - everything is pretty good and pretty close to each other quality-wise.

Take the feedback where you think it's apt and improve bits later, but if you think it's good don't talk yourself out of it.

This is what I tell myself.  

We have to imagine these scripts coming through audio. Reading on paper is different.
I've been listening to Calls on Apple TV and some of them are great. I notice one of the Eps seemed to be taken direct from a 911 call, but they added an additional spin/twist which really made it memorable.

With a rewrite mine would fit in perfectly.
I'm talking myself up here btw, for the crack.
