Yeah, it's a bunch of bullshit. The writers are running it into the ground.

The lighting design continues to drive me crazy. We're repeatedly shown rooms that have as many as three or more different lamps and fixtures of various kinds, all of them emitting just enough of a dim glow to let us know that the bulbs are in fact there, but not throwing out ANY ambient light whatsoever, so that the room is essentially a black void in all of the areas that are more than a few inches away from the lamps. I get that they're trying to be dramatic and create a Caravaggio-like "camera obscura" effect, but it pulls me right out of the scene every time because it's so blatantly stage-lit and not remotely like real life looks.
