Oh my God; the end of 'The Running Man' was right all along!
Wow, how did they splice in CGI green screens in all of those authentic shots? Amazing.
So, this really begs the question: Why are we still using actors? It's almost charmingly nostalgic to mix old fashioned icky people with all our kickass post-processing.
More recently, "to beg the question" has been used as a synonym for to raise the question. For example, "This year's budget deficit is ten trillion dollars. This begs the question: how are we ever going to balance the budget?"
Using the term in this way, although common, is considered incorrect by prescriptive grammarians. This usage is the result of confusion over the translation of petitio principii, which literally translates as "assuming the starting point". (Arguments over whether this current usage should be considered incorrect are an example of debate over linguistic prescription and description and the historical evolution of language.)
nah man, even us descriptivists think shit like "begging the question" and "irregardless" is pretty dumb.
Pretty much all CGI in major movies is a cost cutting device first and an artistic choice second if at all.
Turns out the Japanese guys from Heroes is actually Carrie Fisher.
These guys are among the best compositors out there. Almost always spot-on with their lighting/value/focus integration.
I love the ones where they splice in some parked cars or an empty street or whatever. Is getting a liscence to just film on the street that much more expensive?
It may even be cheaper. But you have more control over things this way, and you can film more things in one location and avoid the cost of moving sets and talent. Especially with sitcoms, where you have a lot of short episodes and inevitably the writers want to set some of them in NYC or the Caribbean or something.

Of course it's fake. TV has this think called a budget.
CGI is the only reason we have this influx of "epic" TV shows nowadays.
Yes, I'm jaded :P

That's the way visual effects should be; subtle, not in your face.
So this is why everything on tv is overcomplicated and lifeless.
no that's just the effect LA has on people
