    I, obviously, can't speak for other people but, afaic, being well known in another performing art is usually a plus. I look forward to seeing if a performer is a triple threat. I also expect more from them because they're already used to performing, have the advantage of being in front of an audience and have been on camera. To me, PD's performance chops didn't translate to acting chops. That's not to say they couldn't with on-going training but last night proved to me that training is needed. Just my 2.

    P.Diddy does sampling from other artist's songs for his music. Which actor can he do some sampling for his acting style?

    here is a link to an article about Coombs when he appeared on Broadway in "A Raisin in The Sun", which earned Tony awards for 2 of its lead actors. It's interesting................

    I think I missed about the first minute of tonight's episode, I saw McGarret handcuffing the lady from the CIA to a police car. I take it I missed the reason why the Five-0 unit was after Wo Fat?

    5-0 will go on - announcement tomorrow/Wednesday - but if there were a question, last night's season finale could have been seen as THE End, with no more five-0 (as an org), a dead governor, Danno heading back to the east coast, Chin back in the saddle w HPD, and Steve and Kono in jail. Yes, it said " . . . to be continued", but didn't Flashforward end with a tease for the next episode? Nicely done . . .

    What I found strange is that if McGarret was able to travel to his house to get the old car going wouldn't he have access to his stash of weapons at home too?

    maybe the car was not parked at his house?

    I sorta had an inkling that was going to happen a couple of weeks ago when I traveling past Television City in LA and saw the Hawaii Five-0 billboards maintaining their place.

    Glad to know that there will be a 2nd season of production in Hawaii.

    On this past Monday's episode (body in the trunk of hot rod cars). Do both of the lady actress look a bit too thin?

    I know Hollywood (TV) stars need to be thin, but GP look a bit sickly thin. Ok, she was never a chunky girl, but (both) look like they drop 10lbs to an already thin body.

    I noticed this, too...esp. since the camera can add 10 lbs.

    With the change in technology, I'm wondering if that's still true (or at least not as true as it used to be).

    With the old CRT sets, they tended to overscan in the horizontal then the vertical. As a result, everything (and everyone) got wider. But now, most people are using flat panel sets. I don't think they overscan.

    It's more like how the arms, shoulder and rear-end look. I'm a guy, so sorry. GP now looks like a coat hanger.

    Or unless they (she) is getting ready for a future episode (or movie deal) where she is ill or on drugs.

    It's not about being thin, it just looks un-healthy IMO.

    Very good point, GG. Must admit, I'd not thought about a change in technology changing the old +10 rule!

    Did that "rule" apply to only video, or did it include film photography? That would test my theory on if it was an issue with CRTs.

    I remember that rule applying to film and since I mostly worked in film I didn't even think about video. Understanding I'm about as technology-challenged as anyone can be I'll still ask this question: If it's the CRT set that was overscanning, would it have made a difference whether or not it was film or video?

    Since some TV series was shot on film, I think it's more accurate to ask if there's a difference between shooting for the small screen and the big one.

    Many years ago I was told by engineers that NTSC pixels were wider than they were taller and that this is the reason people looked heavier on TV. I used this as an explanation until I was corrected by another engineer who said that the pixels are rectangular, but they are actually taller than they are wider. Then I thought maybe it had something to do with 4:3 aspect ratio...but now we have widescreen TV. Who knows?

    Maybe it's just an optical illusion.

    The problem I have with that is NTSC is analog, and as such, doesn't really have "pixels". There are "lines" for the vertical, and the number of dots it could display is limited by the resolution, but it's still analog.

    As best as I can measure on my laptop, pixels are square.

    I had an opportunity last night to ask 2 DPs and a director about this "camera adds 10 lbs. issue"! They all agreed it's true and it's dependent on the camera's lens be it film, video or still photography. Yes, they offered me a more detailed explanation about the millimeters of the lenses and the framing of the shot but, well, TMI for this tuckered tutu to retain! I found it interesting, tho'!

    IIRC, it had something to do with 35mm vs 50mm...but no guarantees!!!

    Ed Asner slated to be a guest star, reprising a role he earlier played in 1975:

    I missed most of this season, expect for this past two leading up to the finally. What happened to the blode female five-o cop?

    I know she was not permanent, so how did the story go? I think the last episode I saw with her was where she a Steve went hiking.
