You ever seen a Sergio Leone western standoff where the good guy and the bad guy are about to dual each other? The street is quiet. Locals shut their windows and clear out. A tumbleweed goes bouncing past. I’m not entirely sure what this might have to do with this particular bonusode with Jill Golick from Ruby Skye P.I., but maybe you can figure it out.
Does everybody here remember Jill Golick, creator of the webseries Ruby Skye P.I.? Or the review we gave the series in Episode, the Eighth?
For those who missed out, I (Nick) didn’t show a lot of love for Ruby. And perhaps my opinion came across a little bit more hateful than I wanted it to (okay, it definitely did) so I’m glad I got the opportunity to clear the air and chat with Jill in person about my thoughts on her show. Luckily for me, Jill is a very understanding person and our conversation was a pleasant and peaceful one.
Ruby Skye P.I. is a webseries that follows Ruby, a young detective-in-the-making, who actively seeks out mysteries to solve in her neighbourhood. It’s very Nancy Drew-ish for a younger generation and is very similar to something you’d expect to see on YTV, in regard to both content and production value. It’s shot well, edited well and packaged well. And Candice enjoys it immensely. But for Nick…not his cup o’ tea.
Jill and I talked not only about my personal opinions of the first season of the series but also what’s coming up for the second season of Ruby et al. As Jill puts it, this new season will “blow the first season…out of the water”. They’ve upped everything in the production, including the gear and the budget.
