Yeah, but last Tuesday's was different from all others, IIRC.stevemcl said:The Sheild goes quite a ways in before the opening song.........
Back when I was a closed-captioner, we were usually captioning from tapes that hadn't had the credits added yet. Our "rule of thumb" was, after the opening title sequence -- and the commercial break that usually immediately followed it -- to keep the captions bumped to the top of the screen for 2 minutes in a half-hour show, 4 minutes in a drama. (The good shows, though, would have someone in the post-production department give us the exact timing of the credits once they had figured it out -- or they'd send us a final version of the tape complete with the credits.)KRS said:I don't think I have ever seen credits last more than ~5 minutes - even the subtle ones that space the names out.
I think that's what it is. They know that you 'have' to watch the credits if they are in the show. Also that frequently they like to squish at the end to advertise all their other shows.Cue-Ball said:I don't know why shows even bother with credits anymore. They either get scrolled by ultra quickly or they're squashed into 1/4 of the screen. Either way, they end up being unreadable. I haven't seen the way that West Wing or CiC do it, but maybe this is how they're trying to get around what's been done in the past.
Yeah, me too. I don't notice them at all, pretty much.newsposter said:I really dont notice credits even that far in. So they are either doing a bad or good job depending on your point of view. I watched cic, ww, and lost this week and didn't notice anything you all are talking of
