    Costumes are always way better on TV.

    Wait, I think everything is supposed to appear better on TV.

    I thought Raj's makeup was the best, followed by Sheldon, Leonard, and then Howard because I just don't like him :D

    I thought the backdrop was jarringly obvious as well. The ground was obviously fake also.

    Given the stuff that Stuart was recommending, maybe the girl comic fans shop somewhere else.

    No, you weren't the only one.

    No, because they don't think of stuff like that on this show unless they can make a joke out of it. Sheldon having a meltdown at that point in the show wouldn't have been funny.

    Yes, they were obviously backdrops, I didn't phrase my compliment well.
    It's a pitfall of the fact that they are shooting in front of an audience and have to use obvious backdrops.

    What I was impressed with is that they were high resolution shots of the actual Vasquez Rocks area as opposed to just having a generic desert backdrop that may have not been as high a resolution.

    I don't have a problem with the girls reading bagged comics, as the guys obviously read what they buy. Let's just assume that the girls were very careful with their reading choices. :)

    Exactly!

    Too close to the ending also. You need the happy ending. Much funnier to see the guys outside trying to figure out what was going on inside and not making much sense of it at first.

    It wasn't a static background either. In a couple of the shots you can see a bird flying around.

    Perhaps an homage to some of the cheesy sets they had at times in the past?

    I thought what they used made it look more like the quality of the original. (Not TNG) I don't think that was the intent, but I made it work in my mind.

    Except that in the several episodes that were actually filmed at Vasquez Rocks (Shore Leave, Arena (the Gorn episode), The Alternative Factor, Friday's Child) the ground was real.

    Interestingly, the exterior shots of 4 episodes (from 3 total seasons) of TOS were filmed at Vasquez Rocks.

    Only 2 episodes of TNG (from which the guy's costumes originated), which ran for 7 seasons, were filmed there. (Who Watches the Watchers, Darmok).

    I'd like to know how they simulated that car speeding past them in the studio.. I watched it a few times, and that thing does move across the screen pretty fast.

    Fish man,

    Off topic, but I just looked at your link in your sig. Nice info, and who knew you were a fellow CMU grad? :up:

    Yes, but when you watch now the quality is pretty poor in comparison to what we have to today.

    That was my thought as well when he sided with the others to go back home. It seems that he is really starting to "grow up"... Wonder where the writers are taking the character...

    "What was that for?"

    "To show people when they don't believe me."





    :D (I wish that TCF had a ROTFL emoticon).
