Not seen it commented on yet, but there appeared to be a very different visual style for Smackdown last night.

It seemed like an almost documentary style than TV show type of footage. Was quite disorientating at times.

Am undecided on whether I like it or not as yet. How did others feel about it?

I was thinking this actually but thought it would have been stupid if I'd said!
I didn't like it personally. I questioned if it was even in HD what I was watching, at times.

Ah! Not just me then. I noticed it too and liked it quite honestly. Maybe Bischoff's production company has loaned them some of those new-fangled camera dealies.

i went back and watched a bit...it doesnt seem any different to me....OP can you be a little bit more specific

Normally, it's quite slick, super-polished, very clean. This time around, it seemed to have film grain & was almost documentary-style in how it was filmed.


Somebody on another forum made a good point & as you're in London, I'll use this example. It's kind of like when the Bill changed the camera's they used to stop it looking like a Soap & give it a more realistic look & feel.

I knew something felt different about it, but I didn't know what. Whatever it is, I like it. Smackdown always seemed too sterile for a wrestling show.

The only thing I noticed is how much better Smackdown has been the last two weeks.

See, I thought went it was on UPN/MyNetworkTv/whatever else it's been on ... that it had the film grain look but now that it's on SyFy I think it's always crisp and clean looking.
