Anyone know what the shooting format is? It looks like really good HD... the highlights give it away. Not 100% sure though.

It's shot on the Panavised F900. I day played on the show a couple months ago, but I've yet to see it.

It's been really fun watching this (the season finale is this Sunday), but I sometimes wonder if the HD technology hasn't compromised it to a certain degree - I just think that the contrast range, especially when they go outside, really shows its limitations. Not 100% crazy about the way that they've graded it either, but that's me. The actual lighting is usually very nice overall, with at least a handful of very excellent shots. What amazes me, more than anything else, is how ballsy they've been about placing their Condors - sometimes you can see them in the shots! It's sorta a mistake, but it's something that only I seem to notice. But I can't see how the operator would've missed them.

Cinematography aside, it's a solid show, and I'm gonna miss it...until next season.

I think the opening sequence is brilliant.

That's funny. I'm currently moving and I'm adding Showtime to my cable just to catch this show. Do you know if they'll re-run the whole series? If not I guess I'll catch it on DVD.

I can't see why they wouldn't, but I honestly have no idea. I'm in the UK at the moment so I've had to be a bit "crafty", if you take my meaning... :P
