What makes me crazy and annoyed..
« on: March 31, 2013, 10:09:10 am »
This topic is for those things that you make you crazy.  I won't entertain politics nor religion.

I love BBCA detective/police shows.  For the most part they are low on violence and high on plots within plots and extremely good acting.

For the first time I saw George Gently last night and while I did like the show and could get into it easily the camera work made me  :censored: crazy.

I literally detest shows where the camera is bobbing (commonly referred to as 'shakey cam') all around.  I don't know what purpose it serves other than to showcase piss poor camera work.  There's absolutely no need for the camera to bob in a still shot.  This is one of the reasons I don't watch Modern Family or The Office.  I don't care how good the show is, if the camera is a bobbing, I'm not a watching.

 :censored: :censored: cameras!

Which brings to mind another issue...

SCIFI type series that only last a season, sometimes two, yet are wildly popular.  Firefly comes to mind immediately.  Then Dresden.  There was another one.....hmmmm Brimstone.  I really liked that one.  I also detest moving them to different time slots.  Makes me crazy.

Glad to see you're using one of the new emoticons I loaded in.  Unlike the above, that doesn't make me crazy.

Do you mean 'Outcasts'?  If so, putting one thing in print and meaning another makes me crazy.  ;)

The bobboing camera style is becoming very popular due to folks with short attentions spans and the fact that movement keeps your eyes on the screen, it also is supposed to lend a kind of grittiness and a feeling as if you are there watching the actors and being in the same room, looking back and forth as if your eyes were the camera, its a technique that started awhile ago and made famous by shows like NYPD Blue. I hate it, its as if the director is trying to tell me where to look, where he thinks my attention should be. Have we becoming that stupid......oh..... never mind.

Watching a series on Amazon (I'm a Prime member) and then finding out you need to pay for the final seasons....which I have if I liked it enough.  That makes me crazy.
