Even though its not the news most where hoping for, the original schedule was tight enough as it was. Hoping CBS D would do seasons 4 & 6 as well as 5 & 7 within the time restrictions was a long shot at best. But I imagine these guys wont make the same mistake twice and again they've proved they listen to their fan base by sending HTV packing.
Isn't HTV just a post production house and not an FX house? Give them a bit of credit. The live action stuff looks great. At the end of the day, CBS is responsible for quality control and this is the second time in a row that mistakes haven't been corrected before the discs go to press. Sure HTV's work is sloppy, but more importantly, CBS didn't notice or didn't care that the end result was subpar.
I really don't buy that they let an entire season of subpar FX work slip by. Glaring mistakes aside, I believe that HTV and their consultants took a different approach with Season 2 to make it as close to the original as possible, to recapture the original viewing experience. But as soon as the caps of the work went public and the uproar from the fan base over its deviation from the Season 1 FX and its down-right inferiority, it went right out the window.
