Personally, this feels an awful lot like a CSI spinoff.

In other words, same plots, just with a different set of characters and the occasional hint of the story...

I think that's actually the problem I have with a lot of modern examples of digital FX: it's blatantly clear it's an effect and far from seamless. Even simple set extensions look terrible and are...

Another piece of my youth will now be presented in the most hogwash way possible, judging from how the movies for 21 Jump Street, Charlies Angels and Dukes of Hazzard ended up.

The problem with the above list is, you can't just take today's ratings and slip them into yesterday's stats. It would be like comparing box office numbers without taking into account inflation.

I don't either.

It's like the younger crowd keeps finding new ways to watch other people do things instead of doing them on their own.
