comment When did shows start repeating the last few seconds/minutes after commercials?
I think it's particularly prevalent in reality shows. It seems a lot of times, the show pauses just before the commercial with some sort of tease to get you to stick around. Then when it resumes, rather than just jumping to the reveal, they replay the tease again.

comment Why did they change the child actress portraying Lily twice?
Another example -- Edward Furlong played John Conner in Terminator 2: Judgement Day at age 13 and won a couple of awards for his work. He was expected to reprise the role in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines twelve years later, but he was having substance abuse problems and the role went to Nick Stahl.

@cde You mean Wade (the PE teacher)? Yep, he shows up out of nowhere after you think he's zombie food.

@cde "Circle, circle, Dot, dot, – Now you've got the cootie shot!", spoken by Tamra. Unfortunately, it turns out only kids who have started puberty are immune, all the the rest turn into zombies.

comment Whiskey in US movies out of plain glass decanters. A movie or culture thing?
Plus when the host is offering guest(s) a drink at home, they almost always have a bar area (maybe just a countertop or top of a chest) handy in the living room where they can step over to to pour drinks. No need to go into the kitchen. I can't remember the last time I was in a house that had a setup like that.

comment Were old TV shows routinely sped up for some reason?
@Catija I added a reference to a story in the WSJ. But there are many more, just Google: old tv shows sped up for more commercials

comment What is this vehicle during the filming of the bus flip in Terminator Genisys
There are at least two separate cars -- the one you show as your first sill, with the cameras at the back, and the one I am referring to. One runs ahead of the bus, and the other runs alongside it.
