Terminator-214 "The Good Wound" - Discuss/Grade <SPOILERS>



FOX:
An injured Sarah is guided by the image of John's father, Kyle Reese, while Weaver's move to protect John Henry results in deadly consequences.
Trailer for The Good Wound

Posting it a little early to remind people of the new episode this week.

Since I returned my Ram - yes I know this is the second time and it had the same damned defect as the first - all I'm seeing are 09 Ram's and Ram product placement.

Ya know, done properly, product placement doesn't really bother me, and sometimes even adds to a production. The presence of real brand names, as opposed to bullsh!t made up names, lend a greater aire of realism. The established names and logos that appeared in 2001:A Space Odyssey and Bladerunner made those worlds seem much more believable to me. By the same token, when a character drinks a soda (for instance), and it's clear that they've gone out of their way to obscure the real label, or to replace the real label with an obviously fake one, it almost always takes me out of the scene.

^ Oh I agree at times it's fine but when you have cases like (case in point) Knight Rider being essentially an hour long Ford commercial and even Terminator's focus on Chrysler LLC products (earlier this season they kept the camera on the RAM HEMI logo of the truck for fifteen seconds while dialogue played, long tracking shots of Sarah's Jeep Liberty were shown in the midseason finale) it can be jarring.

I don't have a problem with real products being used instead of having the lead drinking Cool Cola. But when they have lingering shots on things, like James Bond staring at his GPS for a long period of time even though his destination is right in front of him, that's noticable.

I was flipping through stations one day, and on a soap opera one character gave another Midol and then they had a discussion about it. A commercial within the dialog!!!!!!

Well, it's the only way they can make the show.
That said, I can't imagine anyone buying a car based on a TV show.

^ Sorry, that just tickled me.

It takes a lot for product placement to bother me. As long as they don't get all Truman Show about it, I'm fine.

Which is why Chuck is basically a genius show... and any show that's set in a store/mall. Hell, I'm surprised they don't just get Best Buy to co-sponsor it and have the Buy More become a Best Buy.
