Video: Why Ayo Edebiri didn’t see certain episodes of The Bear

And here’s how she takes her beef. (Hint: It’s just like Stephen Colbert.)

Even Ayo Adebiri can’t bring himself to watch specific episodes of FX’s surprise hit The Bear. We understand that, and so does Stephen Colbert.

“The Bear” seemingly came out of nowhere, although IndieWire was a very early adopter. Technically, we’re perhaps bigger supporters than Adebiri himself.

“I haven’t watched all the episodes, I think some were hard to watch if that makes sense,” Adebiri told Colbert on the Jan. 4 “Late Show.”

“There’s massive tension,” offered Colbert, a fan who had to take a break from Episode 7. The CBS late-night host said he and his wife have yet to return to the program — but not because they don’t like it; they just had to breathe. That sentiment should be checked out in pretty much every viewer of the Chicago-based sandwich shop drama.

Episode 7, “The Review,” is the 20-minute single-shot episode of Season 1; IndieWire got the inside scoop on the stressful July shoot. “The Review” wasn’t supposed to be a one-shot “until maybe two or three weeks ahead of schedule,” series lead actor Jeremy White told IndieWire at the time.

Showrunner Christopher Storer (“Ramy”) and executive producer Joanna Calo (“BoJack Horseman”) “pretty much” rewrote the entire “Review” script, White said. Not that that’s a bad thing.

“We were able to start over, which I think helped,” White explained. “They still managed to keep all the major story points for it, but they wrote it as a blueprint so we could shoot it in one shot. That was of course very important so that it starts with the words.”

“We read it out loud a couple of times, just sitting there and making sure everything sounded right. I try to block it out a bit, just for words, without anything else,” he continued. “And then, with our scripts in hand, we set it up like you would on stage.”

And then it was the cameraman’s problem.

Shooting a long scene or even an entire TV episode or movie in one take is “all really immersive and very cool,” White said. “But I have to say, from my perspective in film and television, I often don’t know how well a single shot actually lends itself to the story. It’s like, we’ve got a lot of money, we’ve got a lot of time, we can do it, it’s going to be really impressive. and it is impressive. But I think in our case it really lends itself to the story and where the characters are because the suspense builds up so quickly that we don’t give the audience a break from it. There is no grace period – it is consistent.”
