    These are great. One of the things I have enjoyed most, after collecting the series on DVD is watching all the bloopers that occurred. Some people don't realize it was basically shot live or as they called it "live to tape." Basically they had to do everything in one take due to expense and the amount of money it cost back then to edit. Fortunately most of the actors had done live theatre, so this show was unique and most of the actors were pretty good.

    the show had a mixture of great actors and terrible actors. to put it best the best ones had done theatre, but not all of them had. Dan Curtis said


    about his casting that he hired who he liked, he had no idea how to cast at all back than. he just hired not knowing the differnence who was good or bad but just on who he liked. and that explains why a LOT of actors/actresses were cast. he did find some gems don't get me wrong, but he also found some lousy ones too. oddly the acting was better in the B&W era than in the color. he cast better i think than.



    and yes sometimes they did have to re do something. they were able to sometimes fix a flub or something. J. Frid used to swear when he wasn't satisfied with a performance. i don't think he did it every day. but they did fix some stuff. and they did also rehearse as well. before filming begin.


    Doctor Who in the 60's was the same way. they did rehearse but i think they had more time to do so cause there were less mistakes. i can't remember how many times per day they were allowed to fix the edits. Doctor who was allowed i believe 3 edits if i'm not mistaken.



    and other than William Hartnell who cause he was so ill didn't always remember his lines and he did flub lines all the time. and yes you can tell but for me it's part of the charm of the show. and for me i can't really tell. for DS it's i think more evident. so my guess is they had less time to rehearse. and to remember all they had to remember.

    Enjoyed a range of these bloopers. They are the appetizer before I start watching the DVD's again after a lengthy hiatus. Merci
