5 Shows After Dark: Rhimes is to Beveled Glass as Abrams is to Lens Flare

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | February 21, 2013 | Comments ()


"Community" on NBC at 8:00pm ET.

"Parks and Recreation" on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Special double episode tonight! So exciting!

"Archer" on FX at 10:00pm ET.

"Suits" on USA at 10:00pm ET. Second season finale.

"Scandal" on ABC at 10:02 pm ET. So I've been catching up on this, and there's definitely some things I like about it and some that I'm less enthusiastic about. Like the same kind of magical Republicans who happens to hold exclusively liberal values that also afflicted "The Newsroom". The thing I really HATE though, is the constant shots through beveled glass even in places where there are no beveled glass doors to look through. I guess it looks all arty, with the doubling and whatnot, but they do it about ten times an episode, particularly when they're in the conference room, so it's just silly. But one time they did one of those shots when the characters were sitting at a diner and I was like "THERE ARE NO GLASS DOORS THERE, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?" So, I guess the moral of the story is not to shotgun series that have a tendency towards showy shots because you develop an irrational hatred for it.

Genevieve Burgess would very much like it if you bought her book. Please?
