There was a river that ran by the building that he dropped into.

You can't be serious. It is virtually impossible to cast actors/actresses that might look like offspring. Hell, the brothers don't even look like brothers.

There might be a higher budget, but they also split the effects up among more companies this past season, to some that charge lower rates the the original vendor. And it shows. The quality is much more uneven this year. The skitters and the Espheni overlord look good, but the mechs look terrible, and the energy fence is pretty cheesy, too. It doesn't look any better than the Tholian Web. And no, technically, there's nothing that would make it cheaper to do the lattice looking fence than a solid energy field of some kind. That was somebody's artistic choice. Most likely due to wanting to be able to clearly see the people on the other side of it in the first episode, when the fences first appeared and we needed to see the groups separated. I would have gone a different route, but I can imagine the conversations that led to the lattice idea.

But then in real life you can have brothers that don't look anything alike too. For instance in my family, I take after my moms side while my brother takes after my dads side. We don't look anything alike.

If relations on TV or movies had to actually resemble each other, no TV show or movie would ever get made.

Which adds more credence to my point. Since it can happen in real life, how can anyone expect to always happen in make-believe land.

Nepotism can only go so far .. .. although there are a few instances where the casting folks do a pretty good job attempting resemblance ..

Oddball: Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Namely, Once Upon a Time with the actresses playing the evil queen and Snow White and their child counterparts in flashbacks.
