I would argue that it is every bit a super hero show as as Arrow is, given it's people fighting crimes using weapons and no supernatural powers. I see very little practical distinction, other than...

I understood your point. It just seemed that in addition, you were implying that these are the only kinds of LBGT characters Hollywood uses. That's what I was disagreeing with.

You mean like Brooklyn 99's Captain Holt or Flash's Captain Singh, who audiences know are gay only by occasional, side references to their boyfriends, the way any other character might casually...

Personally, I'd prefer The Smoaking Gun, but that's just me.

I'm surprised at all the discussion about Arsenal taking over the show. It seems to me a given that Green Arrow has a trip to the...

Wow, I had exactly the opposite reaction. I thought Agent Carter was even MORE cartoony than SHIELD. Like, it would not have surprised me in the slightest if Dick Tracy villains Mumbles and Pruneface...

It's not at all shocking to me. The last episode was clearly written with the intent that it could serve as a series finale. The writing must have been on the wall for a while.

What I mean by my statement is this: Babylon Five was unique in that they had a 5 year story arc mapped out from day one. So even in the very first episodes, you started to get a sense of the rich...

Soooo much better than the beginning of SHIELD. This feels more like early Babylon 5.

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...

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...
