Stock Up On The Ex-Lax And Viagra Because The SyFy Channel's "Powerful Mondays" Are Here
Is it me....or is there nothing new the SyFy Channel is showing on their heavily promoted "Powerful Mondays" nonsense beginning July 11th? This is all garbage television viewers have seen before on the SyFy Channel, and abandoned all of it in record numbers because of it. Well, at least Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern are feeling the......."Summer.....Sizzling.....Excitement"......amongst themselves for their self labeled....."Powerful Mondays." Because I'm just not feeling it myself, and neither is the rest of the population.
I have mentioned this before. There is something odd and different looking about the film stock the SyFy Channel uses to film its originally produced movies and television series. It's evident in its video promotions for the new "Powerful Mondays" lineup. The color brown seems to be dominate in the film stock they use, with little to no room for bright reds, blues, and yellows. Also, wide angle establishing shots are dropped for fake widescreen shots. The cameras always tend to be way too tight on close-ups.
If anything...."Powerful Mondays" will teach us what can happen when professional film school is avoided in order to leap-frog directly into employment for the SyFy Channel.
