It's strange to have it as a finished product. It's like a door has closed on the characters and situations. In a way, they are more "real" now because I can no longer alter their dialogue or circumstances.

Not at all! I think it means that the characters and situations have a life and a depth and can allow for multiple interpretations.... just like in reality.

I like that Janet is polarizing. I like that people sympathize with Jaye and Eddie. If it was straightforward, it would be dull.
