Soap Opera Camwork.
23 December 2014 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

OK. This is a semi-cute episode because of some advance in Sharon's & Flynn's "relationship" but what make me write a review for this specific episode was the bad, in my opinion, camera work.

I see that Sheleen Choksey has directed 39 episodes of M.J. so this might happened in other episodes too, but I was annoyed from some ridiculous frame and movement of the camera in this one. Especially during the confrontation with the killer. It heavily reminded me ...soap operas, especially some Turkish or Mexican. Some abrupt close up supposedly used to enhanced the dramatic tone of a scene but they actually make the scene laughable. You usually get this camwork when hearing news like "He is going to need a...brain transplant!" or "your husband is actually your long lost brother!".

Anyway, a mediocre episode nevertheless, semi-cute because the awkwardness of the (soon to be?) couple.
