So we’re still plugging along in one of our favorite months here at TAIM, October! The weather is slowly beginning to change, Halloween is around the corner, and every business from Dunkin Donuts to post offices are integrating pumpkin spice into their products and services. Ten years ago this really wasn’t the case, but that’s not a complaint.
Now some of us prefer the nicer more harvesty (for lack of a real word) version of Halloween, where others like the scary part. One thing that everyone seems to like though is the sexy part. And if it’s one thing TAIM does well, it’s pumpkin spice. And sexy.
With all that said, TAIM is set in California and no doubt we’ll have a Halloween episode and hopefully more. Now because we have various elements of story telling baked in, we won’t always need to focus on crazy adult parties and the like… However one doesn’t have to google that deep to find that this is a holiday that’s exploited to the fullest related to sexy costume wearing and the industry.
And where Blake and Val will no doubt like the sexy, EMH and Sierra prefer the scary, it’ll be Niles that will like the harvesty aspect of Halloween. Naturally things will never go as smoothly as they all prefer, however it’s the journey that we think y’all will like!
And there’s no doubt a chasm of information we don’t know regarding the adult industry. Now even though TAIM is obviously scripted and fictional, we’d still like to be generally accurate in our portrayal of the field. But that isn’t to say we need to get every last I dotted and T crossed because again, this is fictional. Sailors who watch The Last Ship, doctor’s who watch Grey’s Anatomy, and zombies who watch the many shows on TV about them will no doubt pick up on inaccuracies; so it’s a tight rope of a walk in pasting muster but not getting lost within the minutia.
In short, the hope is to get enough right about the industry and integrate that information into a Halloween themed episode. For better or worse it really does write itself, but the ironic part will be that when this does become a reality, more than likely this episode won’t be filmed during October; and the pumpkin spice will be completely simulated.
