  1. Thanks @CovisGod Been umming and urring about getting this and now I can just give it a bash.
  2. One thing I have noticed change in reality TV shows is that the audience prefer nice people now whereas a few years ago they used to favor the trouble makers. That race around the world program sounds good, i'll look it up.
  3. Excellent, thanks for that. Nice to have an article from only last year too. It was filmed in 2004 so four years after BB, can't believe that started almost 20 years ago!! But even Shattered was faked, as I am just reading, they gave the contestants 45mins of sleep every so often.
  4. I remember watching a really good show on C4, before Big Bro I think. It was a competition to stay awake as long as possible and in the final few hours they made them lie in the dark. A young girl won it by giving herself cramp continuously. It was brilliant, can't remember if it was a one off or a series but very early reality TV. If anyone can remember what it was called I would love to know.
  5. Spoiler: Some CGI was used to help make them more expressive and added blinks.
  6. I am not convinced the next generation will take it on. I loved it, remembering the original and how it made me feel. But I grew up with Fraggle Rock, the Muppets and all the other amazing creations from JH. Speaking to a few millenials at work about it and they aren't really interested. Why I ask, because it's all puppets they say. FFS, they would rather watch some crap CGI than something that looks real and has been performed. No one is watching it where I work though, which is odd as we are a childcare organisation but maybe it's more appealing to geeks like me.
  7. I was watching the new Bear Grylls Treasure Island show last night and I just got the feeling it is mostly staged. There seemed to be to many camera angles for how many crew there is. Especially at a point where two of them were in the water trying to get a boat back to base. Sometimes the camera is POV but then when it cuts to another camera the person doesn't seem have a camera on their body, although I have seen a few. There just seems to be the perfect amount of drama to keep the show going and often it just feels like they are acting. I have even seen at least one of them on another show. Anybody watching this and have any thoughts? Also, what other shows are pretending to be real and are staged, there must be a few. I don't think you can count stuff like Towie as we all know that's staged.
  8. That's what they were talking about in the doc, the director was using multiple camera and moving them which had not really been done before with puppets.
  9. The Making of is fantastic, made me very sad that I just do a mediocre management job and didn't follow the creative path I should have done. They really have created a masterpiece and you can tell how much love went in to it. I also didn't realise how many famous voices are in it.
  10. So a wav file rather than midi? to over simplify it?
  11. I was just about to post that a game similar to Tempest had music but I couldn't remember the name. Loved that Gyruss music Out Run had a great soundtrack too but I think that was much later
  12. No Rick & Morty either. I think we have to accept that it's just wrong and go with the RLLMUK Top 100 instead.
  13. hmmm, maybe they should poll TV writers, might get a better line up! @ZOK I have never seen Dinnerladies, I will have to try it, that and Fleabag.
  14. One of the best TV shows, so underrated, no one even seems to know what it is. I am guessing this is just the top 100 for this one particular journalist, I can't find the source anywhere.
