What's weird is that he looks superimposed on the chair.
I'm personally of the belief that the show hasn't changed as much as people's personal perceptions of the show.
I don't remember exactly when, but it's been told many times on retrospective shows/interviews that at some point (I *think* actually fairly early) that they negotiated with CBS to not use a laugh track during scenes in the operating room. So then, as Alda has told many times, they started doing more and more scenes in the operating room.
There were also other shows like the "newsreel episode(s)", that didn't have a laugh track.
Wow, even a half hour show really takes a couple of hours? I thought it was an hour, maybe 1.5 hours.
I think we need a term like the "Wilhelm scream" for these. (I don't recognize many of the laughs, but I do seem in the past to have remembered a woman's laugh on many different shows.)
When did the show ever have a commitment to realism?
a super hot codependent alcoholic wanna be actor involved with smart codependent professionals who can't live alone?
How has that premise changed at all
Maybe we aren't "geeky" enough to notice the change.
I think "geeks" ARE a target audience, but not THE target audience. If they were the only target audience, the show would have been canceled a long time ago due to poor ratings. Even the original Star Trek, part of the geek's main playbook only lasted what, two seasons?
our work is done.
I was being generous with the time to allow for set changes and re-takes. I'm sure you're right that the vast majority of 30 minute multi-cam shows film in much less than two hours.
I went to tapings of Friends and Seinfeld and each was close to three hours.
