I have a glorious, big, high-definition TV. Tilt-shift is a cool technique that makes great big cities look like train sets. But I’m already tired of seeing it. “Sherlock” used it to good effect with wide panoramas of London that made it look like a toy set (which was extremely appropriate, considering that Sherlock Holmes considered the city his own personal play-set; clever). But “Continuum” blurs out parts of the picture, making me wonder, “Why do I have this big, beautiful TV?” Please stop undermining my purchase decision. On the other hand, it’s fun to see a police officer from Portland, OR, as the “alien” outsider (even though she’s really from the future and way more of an alien than the local police from Vancouver really know).
Too much tilt-shift (I’m talking to you “Continuum”)
