Let me know if all goes well =)
well I just DL'd that preair file myself and I figure that either they released it w/o FX&Music because they hadn't fully completed that part of the production at the time it was released or they released it on a DVD and whoever converted it didn't convert all the audio channels correctly, I'm leaning towards the latter but it's big deal, they'll post the true premier in the next 20-30 hrs, no worries =)
BTW that new SG Atlantis torrent available now, enjoy!
Great Episode...with another TBC.
i'm avoiding pre-airs cause they are too weird with no sound effects.
besides, the premiere last nite gave me the most exciting friday nite i have had in weeks, lol!
... now that i have been spoiled by watching entire seasons of stargate/atlantis, i am not sure how i will handle this week-to-week thing... oh, life is *soooo* rough!
P.S. I am dying to twattle-on with someone about the new season but don't want to risk putting spoilers up on the show's page. any advice?
Gee, I must be doing something wrong all my preairs play just like a regular show.
oh, i've only noticed it with atlantis.
but i'm also uber-annoyed that Bionic Woman preair i watched is hella-different from the show that made the final cut. And i'm all confused - don't know which torrent to download now to watch the *real* episode.
I don't stress it, tho - i'll get off my butt and figure it out when it really matters to me, lol.
this site is wicked-awesome & i am soooo appreciative of it, but i have learned that, just like life, it is not perfect. but that's ok with me!
Don't be put off by a few bad eggs, most pre-airs are no different than there TV premier counterparts(except for the occasional production text on the top or bottom)
When audio/video is flawed, it's most likely the result of a bad media conversion by the one who released it online...
as for "Bionic Woman"-- those differences have to do with Original Pilot vs Aired Pilot, and between those 2 or more productions there are often changes made based on many factors including: Certain characters/parts of the story didn't score high with test audience or an Actor(s) couldn't commit to the series due to prior commitments,etc....
Those are just a couple of things that could cause script/cast changes between Original Pilot and Aired Pilot.
I've only seen a couple of pre-airs but it really didn't bother me about the no SFX. You just kinda get used to it. I liked how the person in the background says "BOOM" and everybody flinches, like something really important happened. Watched episode 4x02 as well and it's a good one. Plus the torrents available for DL are all pre-airs, I would think that it should say that. Have yet to see it with SFX.
yeah, no, i understand the reason behind the diff things with bionic, it just leaves me having to do more work (lol) and *really* bummed that the deaf character didn't make the cut - i LOVED her!
now that you've said that, i think i will go back & watch SFXless version just for the comdedy of hearing someone say "boom" - that's awesome, i wish i had seen it before.
