Okay, I lied

Because I took one more peek at Twitter, and Felicia Day posted a link to this:




On YouTube.

The random 80s pseudo-technobabble they've got poor MacGyver spouting is worth the price of admission all by itself.

Very amusing. And "bitmap" as a verb -- heh!

I think, however, that the Enterprise D footage should be excluded. It doesn't fit among all those shows set in what passes for the real world of here and now. :-)

Or perhaps that's contrast? If so, I didn't pick it up on the first run, but a fair use indeed. Way out there in the sci-fi future, still being impressed by "enhancing" an image, when if we really could do it today, it would be taken for granted in Trek.

*laughs*

Yeah, someday, I want someone on a show to say, "can you enhance that?" And then have the techie say, "No, as a matter, you can't. The resolution doesn't go that far - all you'll get are bigger squares of colour, not more detail into the image."

*laughs* Oh yeah... the 80s stuff is gold... you want to *what* the *what*? The writer just picked two words out of a textbook... admit it! :)

And I know I've seen at least one show where they've asked for an enhancement and the tech has at least said "sorry, that's the best I can do" (...of course, that was probably after getting HD quality picture from a random traffic camera somewhere three blocks down the street).
