FOX (ended 2002)
|I love the show but rewatching it...I forgot how cheap this show was compared to shows TODAY...and in 2000 this show had one of the most expensive pilots ever! Sheesh. |
Also, the fact that the DVDs are in full frame format is a serious pain in the ass.
I'm interested in what you mean by 'cheap'? Is there something else beside the lack of 'full frame format' that contributes to the 'cheapness'?
If by 'cheap' you mean there's short cuts in the plot that have to swallowed by the viewer, I agree. In other shows that sloppiness tends to drive me nuts, but strangely, with DA, I'm not bothered by it. If you mean the dated special effects, I sure don't miss them, and their too-loud music. Really, not trying to flame you, I'm interested in what you're getting at.
|exept fo Buffy season 2 that is, oh and Grey's Anatomy season 2 as well. |
I don't think they fire the original writers, bit they may get lazy, or either cant take a show in a new direction from their orginial premise, it becomes stal, or they take it too far away from season one that it alienates viewers. Eg. Dark Angel, they took season 2 in a very different direction from season 1....some say too far from the original premise.
I downloaded all my second season. So does anyone know if you can find the commentaries oline or on youtube or anything? And can anyone give me a list of the episodes with commentaries, and who does the commentaries for each?
I don't own the dvds. But, I will as soon as I find them. Right now the only I found them is at amazon. I don't want to pay the extra mone for shipping and handling. I also looked at Traget, but they didn't have them. Since, I live near and Army Base I looked there and they didn't have them either. Bases are the best place to shop since you don't have to pay tax. I will just have to keep looking. I think I'll try Best Buy next.
I live in Canada n i bought my dvd at best buy and it was around $40-$50. In the dvds i have (season 1+2) there are commentaries and in the sixth disk of season 2 James Cameron and most of trhe cast and actors talk about how fox annoced it was going to stop airing it said alot more but i have to re-watch it again n listen to the reason why again.
Out of the whole Dark Angel DVD set Jessica Alba and Michael Weatherly only did one commentary. It was And Jesus Bought A Casserole(season one fanalie) it was funny. I also have boopers on the special features i creied of laughter. There are alot of commentaries on episode but alot are with the writers of that episode, Executive producer and more. I never saw or heard James Cameron do one, in the little episode guide that came with the dvd his name doesnt come up on any commentaries(maybe I missed his name and misread).
I think it should become a series as in the past like before. Use all the people as before and just continue from Season 2, but this time let there be a cure for the virus. Then it can go from there and bring back Lidecker......
Somehow get rid of Ames!!!
