|About this budget thing, does the fact that the final 10 episodes are airing in 2009 mean that they will be using 2 years of their normal budget on them? By that I mean, will all of the episodes airing this year be the only ones added to the 2008 budget, and the other unaired episodes will be the 2009 budget? Because they would essentially be getting 2 years of budget for 1 season, if that were the case. It would certainly explain why the Effects have been so fantastically done compared to the previous seasons, because they would essentially have double the money needed to pay for effects.|
If that's true, then it makes it somewhat less agonizing having to wait. Knowing that they have a bit more in terms of finances, will mean that it can get even more amazing.
