As I’ve noted repeatedly, television can be a place of great imagination. But the medium itself can be hard-pressed to visualize imagination as a concept. Mental images and thought processes aren’t things that you can point a camera at and shoot. This week’s featured series tried to peek into people’s minds, using a heroine, a then-newfangled device, and a definite disregard for ordinary storytelling. Unsurprisingly, it didn’t last, but it lives in memory for those who saw it.
“…and what you get is a great look, something that you’ve not seen on network television before.”
The shared mental world often changes violently, with characters seen in black and white on still vivid landscapes…
“You have no limitations, there are no edges to this canvas.”
“The more you peel the onion, the more it stings your eyes.”
“It’s a show you have to watch if you’re an actor and you want to know what’s happening.”
Enter a world that doesn’t exist anywhere else but in the mind, and on TV. But there will be an article about it on your computer, this week on Friday @ 8/7 Central!
