We just watched the first two episodes of this season’s BSG this weekend, and while the shows themselves were fantastic, the non-stop shaky camera work has got to go. I understand they’re going for a cinéma vérité effect (or they just have terrible camera operators), but dudes, stop. Please. I don’t want to have to take a Gravol to watch a tv show. Maybe a teeny bit of shaky camera in the middle of say, hand-to-hand combat. Maybe not even then. It’s just too distracting and discomforting in a bad way, not in a good, “make you feel like you’re in the middle of the action” way.
Is there someone I can email with this complaint? It is so damned close to the absolutely best television series on tv right now - just this one little thing.
