It's interesting that a high-profile show like this, playing on a big network, would compromise quality while cable shows like Breaking Bad on AMC shoot with 35mm. John Toll shot the pilot episode by the way.

By the way, what does "bigger range than normal" mean?
Q: What?s the biggest misconception about HD production?
A: The biggest misconception I find about HD is that I constantly hear that ?the end product is going to look like video.? I say if you?re careful that?s just not the case. Today?s HD cameras really can emulate the look of film.
All of the footage we got looked great, it didn?t have that HD feel. The images looked soft, but not too soft and they had bigger range than normal. And when we blew it up it looked better than you?d expect.
It was funny ? after the Knight Rider film aired on NBC [on February 17th], Derek texted me and said, ?You nailed it. You?ve just killed the use of film in television.?
