NBC seems to have this weird thing where they think "We used to own Thursday night, we need to own it again", and so not surprising they'd move a hit show there with hopes of getting it back. It's...

That might have more to do with her being unlikable and cold in real life.

Of course he was faking imprisonment. The whole setup was the doctor's plan to manipulate the Carter & Co. to rescue him. To make him look like a sympathetic character that could be mined for...

You know, as a guy who's family is 2/3 Asian immigrants, and who has produced plays for America's biggest Asian-American theater organization, I wanted to see more Asian families on network TV. But...

I know Gracepoint is long over, but we just made a "behind the scenes" video of some of the visual effects work in the show. Some people here may enjoy it:

I'm assuming it's motion capture animation. That's how I'd do it.

I couldn't bring myself to watch this one because OBVIOUSLY Matthew Perry is a Felix and not an Oscar, and by casting himself in the wrong role, the show was doomed. As a great actor/director once...

His hands could be tied by studio restrictions. When I worked on 'Birds of Prey', there were VERY strict rules about what villains we could include, when they were seen, etc. Because they didn't want...

Me too. My biggest problem is that we have too MUCH Bruce Wayne. One or two scenes a season just to remind us that he's out there would have been more than enough.

I think you are confusing the effects for Hiro, who could stop and slow time, and Daphne, who was the super-speedster. If I remember correctly, we only had Daphne moving around with frozen objects...

David Mazouz is a great kid, but NOBODY wants to watch a show that focuses on him training to be Batman. Except maybe his parents. That would be ratings suicide.

First off, it's visual effects, not special effects. Totally different departments on a film/tv crew. Secondly, the 90's Flash effects done by Scott Milne were pretty awesome for its time, but the...

I agree with everything you wrote above. My only point was that you can't really blame Summer for the demise of that show. She was a high point.

I don't think it's fair to put Terminator:TSCC on that list. It ran two seasons and Summer was by far the best part of that show. Well, her and Garret Dillahunt. I think what killed that show was...

Except that The Cape didn't create any fans at all. It was an abysmal failure. Ratings dropped 40% after two weeks, and continued to slide every week after. NBC didn't even finish the original 13...

I get your point, but the way you've phrased it is a lot of gobbledygook.

Shows in that era were mostly shot on film, transferred to D1 or DigiBeta tape, and mastered on D1. The effects work were...
