The Other Portlandia

Y'know, I pick on the show Grimm on occasion but I think it's a great show -- beautifully lit, well-acted, and a great idea. But I get the feeling it has to pick up the pace at some point. The regular non-supernatural cops just have to get clued in so that the stories can get a move on.
Because other than that I like the series. And did I mention it's beautiful? They get these interiors to have this amazing painterly look -- a brilliant combination of Art and G&E right there. Somebody on that show is paying attention.

Christopher Sharpe on getting views on YouTube.
Waves is having a big sale on 64-big plugins. That piece of information really belongs in the Tyrannosaurus Mouse blog, doesn't it?
Final Cut Pro is doing a really disturbing thing where the exports have actual errors. The errors seem to be incurred during the pre-render. So I've deleted all the prerenders and am starting again. That means we'll have another QC check of Android Insurrection tonight.

I tried Grimm for like 8 episodes, and I have to tell you that it's a really mediocre knock-off of Supernatural. As much as I love David Greenwalt(who did one of the greatest TV shows of all time, "Profit", as well as Buffy/Angel)--the show's just not good.

I think the CGI's been pretty mediocre, and the story doesn't seem to go anywhere.

If you're not watching Supernatural, watch like the first 3 episodes of Season 1, then start on Season 2--it's a freight train from there on in.

Frankly, I don't think a TV show can survive any more without a big arc--which Grimm didn't seem to have. Stand-alone-episode TV doesn't seem to work so well anymore.

I keep thinking "soon, soon the arc will begin". I'm a romantic. I believe. ;-)
