comment What does 7c mean in this poster?
@davidbak The border region of Eastern and Central time is much more densely populated than either border of the Mountain time zone, so there would inevitably be people on one side who get their TV service from stations on the other side.

comment How do actors memorize extremely long scripts?
@Catija Even if a take is longer, not every cut has to be from the same take.

comment Question about a specific filming technique - the long zoom
And for completeness, a "dolly zoom" is a shot that combines both techniques, working against each other, so that the subject stays the same size and the background (and foreground, if present) change around it. EDIT: Hey, three people posted the same thing at the same time, what are the odds?

comment When will Howard Wolowitz get his PhD?
One other concern is that I have heard that it is not common for people to work at the university where they received their doctorate (none of the main characters except Bernadette has their degree from Caltech AFAIK), so getting his PhD would also mean a career change.

comment Are there real posts as consultants in detective departments like shown in TV shows in America?
Of course, "routine stuff like DNA, bloodwork, drug testing, etc" rarely shows up in Bones. The typical case in that show is of a body being found in an unidentifiable state due to decomposition or other forms of destruction.

@AtanuCSE Is it necessarily clear in these shows - which are to my understanding often in an episodic format typical of police procedural shows - that it is a continuous appointment?

comment How are head shots and deep throat gashes filmed?
I have asked a question relating to a claim you made here in Are there union rules requiring stunt performers, and what does this mean for action stars who “do their own stunts”

comment How did they film Danny tricycle riding through the hotel?
"but it's obvious that he didn't as there is clearance." - not to mention a movie camera is far too heavy to be supported by a selfie stick.

comment Scene from a TV show with two men talking and one of them summarising Star Wars in a funny way
@T.Rutter " Do Americans have pedal bins?" - well, we just call them trash cans.

comment What is Black Widow's service record?
Do we know for certain that the USSR fell in the same way, at the same time, as the real world? Maybe the Winter Soldier made some key assassinations in the late 80s early 90s.

comment Why is it always the same type of beer cup used in college-style movies/series?
@Traubenfuchs When it is illegal to drink under age 21, is it surprising that the police would try to find places where a lot of people under age 21 are drinking and arrest them?
