I watch the episodes bunches of times; pieces during shooting in dailies, the
directors cut (twice, once to just watch, again to make my notes), again when
John and I do our producer's cut/edit, again when we do the audio spotting
(sound EFX and music), again when we mix the episode, again on VHS to check how
it sounds on a regular TV stereo, and again when it airs to check the
transmission. That's 7 times just to start.
It takes me about a year or two to be able to really *see* the show, to stop
anticipating each line before I hear it.
