Is it just me or is this the most unlikable/uninteresting survivor group in some time? I don't think this season is going to go down as a classic.....

A rational set of scientists would say "Okay, you use the core to make the cure, and then I'll use the core to send it back and erase the timeline".

But whatever, no fun that way :)

Kris, I wonder if you could comment about how much brighter the Epson is subjectively than the JVC - does the extra brightness feel like a meaningful improvement?

Thanks

Where can I find out more about this? Seems like a game changer if you don't have to assume worst case scenario of half brightness for screen sizing.

No - it's more like 900 vs 1200. And less than 900 as soon as the bulb starts aging.

Fair Enough :) Although, if it continues to have no lens memory (like the 300ES) its still not a viable option for me.

2) Having no measurement tools to confirm, they either have to hire someone authorized by Epson to...

What would have been nice would be to tie brightness mode to lens memory, so you could have it easily switch to high brightness for zoomed out 2.35:1 AR, and medium brightness for 16x9 AR.

It is *because* of the long lasting stable laser that the useful brightness is much more than 300 extra lumens. After 100 hours on the JVC the Epson will be more like 500 lumens brighter, or nearly...

I would characterize 25%-33% more usable lumens for a much longer period of time as more than a "slight advantage". After a hundred hours or so on the bulb the Epson will be 50-60% brighter. YMMV.

After some poking around it seems that almost no one is getting 1200 calibrated lumens from a 4910. Most people are getting 700-1000.

Just so I understand, 150" diag = 12' x 5' scope screen = 60 sqft. 1200 calibrated lumens on a unity gain screen = 20 ftL with a new bulb, and perhaps as low as 10ftL when the bulb has fully aged.

We already had a show like that - it was called Revolution. And it was awful. This last episode felt far too close to moving in that direction.

Disagree. The show has been a mixture of lightness and darkness since day 1. That balance is key, IMO.

Great episode, but I'm worried they are going down a path that is far too dark that they can't plausibly pull back from.

I'm bailing. Not only is there not a single character interesting to me, but I decided to search the book summary, and what's coming next just sounds to be either exasperating or boring.

I thought the drama was way too forced in the second episode - if the show keeps up like this it'll lose me. For now I'll keep watching though.
