I watched this week's CSI episode last night from my AccessDTV recording, and I noticed something unusual about all the corpses on this show -- they either were breathing, or had a pulse!


This week's show had a lot of bodies for some reason, and they were ALL alive :) You could clearly see the corpses' chests move up and down. On one closeup of what was supposed to be a slit neck, you could see an obvious neck pulse.


They tried to hide this with quick cuts and so forth, but with the AccessDTV it's pretty easy to pop back and review a scene. Looks like the producers need to account for the higher resolution of HDTV when they do these "dead body" effects...

Jim,


Take this one step further and you could really have the Screen Actor's Guild on your case :D


Seriously, the HDTV resolution of the well shot scenes is going to change the way directors use the camera. CSI is one of the best and I sure hope others "copy" them. I think, if ABC would come up above 720, we would see the same things in Alias and other of their action shows.


Though there are not (yet) many dead bodies in Max Bickford, you could never see the same things with their poor PQ.

I noticed the bodies breathing too.:eek:

I was watching this and all of a sudden the guys stomach was moving. I tried the SD broadcast of CSI, and no breathing.

Now thats a Good Picture:cool:

Well, I have to be honest that in this CSI season I've noticed more gory shots of bodies (or maybe psychologically I'm more tuned to it)... breathing corpses are fine by me...make me remember that this is only make-believe!

That is the only draw back to HD, you dont miss a thing. I have learned to live with it.

(Slightly OT) A couple of weeks ago on Judging Amy, Tyne Daley was leaving the office with a box full of desktop stuff. You clould clearly see CBS written with black marker on the bottom of one of the items. :)

Ever since I saw a dead body breathe in CSI last season, I've paid close attention to this. Just about every episode that has a body on the table breathes, and it's mostly stomachs that move when the actors try to take a quick, shallow breathe. It's a little distracting but it only gets a chuckle from myself and the wife when it happens.
