first half of 10.5 last night. I’m not going to start ranting over how much they got ‘technically wrong.’ The only reason I watched the thing was to see what they got wrong. I did not even know anything about the show, or even that is was being aired. (Remember tivo, no commercials, I never know when anything is on any of the standard networks unless I really really need to know.) Anyway, we did hear a lot of second (third-and fourth hand) hubbub over flaws in the production, storyline, plot, you name it. So I recorded it! For you marketters out there, word-of-mouth is the great new medium! Any publicity is good publicity, and all that crud. Anyway, it suckered me in!
To tell you the truth, I didn’t mind any of the ‘flaws’ one bit. It’s a fictional story for goodness sake! Actions are designed to move the plot forward, not to recreate the chaos of a real disaster.
However, there was that one thing. That openning crevase ‘chasing’ the train. That was pretty silly. Instead of suspense, it made me giggle like a school girl. AND then as soon as the train falls in, it stops!
I have to admit, at least it was 1000% better than that dragon movie!
