This is actually expected in some cultures. I live in a neighborhood that has a significant Korean population. And many women there have expressed annoyance at their peers who pressure them to cut...

My guess is that you should post this question in the display calibration forum, not the programming forum. You'll get quicker/better answers.

FOX has already announced that they aren't doing a second season of Gracepoint, and all the set dressing/props/wardrobe from season 1 were sold off at a public sale this past weekend.

Totally agree. The six hours of The Lost Room are still the most engaging TV scripts I've ever read. Was so pissed when SyFy went with Warehouse 13 instead. I'm sure its because it was MUCH cheaper...

I'm seeing a lot of tweets from people who plan to 'hate watch' it. I don't get that. I hope its good.

Of course. But do we NEED both? I posit that the average American consumer won't be in a rush to throw away their old TVs and DVDs so they can see Oklahoma! in 4K, and DEFINATELY won't see the need...

I honestly don't get this show. Tried first season, gave up after two episodes. Tried again this season, doesn't work for me at all. It feels like the worst of the year 2000 low-rent syndicated...

For me, it's shocking that people really care about pushing screen technology to the next level so quickly. Frankly, I still enjoy a VHS of Casablanca more than a Blu-ray of Michael Bay's Summer...

The first part, yes. The second part, hardly ever works.

For example, in a season 1 episode of Heroes, Sylar wore a T-shirt created by the art department, with the silhouettes of a band. It was...

It's not even a matter of simply 'rerendering them'. Let's assume for a moment that the assets used for the show are archived in any useful way, the artists who did the work have scattered to the...

True. I'd say the difference now though is that VFX are a much higher percentage of the running time of a show than they were during the transition to HD. A show like Once Upon a Time has 400+ VFX...

Well, using ACTUAL film is almost dead for TV production at this point. I can count on my fingers the number of major TV shows that still shoot on film. The Walking Dead comes to mind, and they shoot...

Even movies shot on 4/5/6K digital cameras are sometimes doing their VFX at 2K and uprezzing, because working with 50 layers of 4K data is pretty difficult and very, very SSSLLLOOOOWWWWWW.

Agree with this 100%. Also, if memory serves, both Verizon and AT&T have stopped laying any new fiber to homes, due to not yet getting their way in the net neutrality battle. That doesn't bode well...

I'm as disappointed as the rest of you about the Tom/Red reveal. But ten times more disappointing is offing Alan Alda's character. He's the one television actor who can keep up with James Spader, and...

Well, I'm going to have to disagree with that, because they could have still written more interesting characters during 'biding its time' period. And since Winter Soldier came out, most of the...

Not to mention he had literally nothing to do with making the characters in Planet of the Apes look like real apes. Although to hear him talk about it, you'd think it was all him with a little...

Says more about the weakness of the writing of the characters on SHIELD overall, than about Ward being a great character, IMHO. Aside from Coulson and Fitz, the characters on SHIELD are pretty...

No, no, no...It's an over-turned fruit cart frozen in time or in slow-mo while we're in Barry's subjective time. That's the shot. Now bonus if the fruit is about to fall on a hobo.

I'm speculating that the shawarma scene in the end credits of The Avengers was to set up Nick Fury's Furious Falafel Stand. You heard it here first.
