Somehow I don’t think so.

That shakey cam BS is absolutely horrible!!!!!!! The worst idea to come to video of any kind. Why do the writers/directors feel they need to copy the lame ideas of other shows?

Maybe it’ll be a cross between Cloverfield and Sunnydale – Buffy the Shaky Cam Hunter in Space!

I like the hand-held camera approach. True, people tend to adopt techniques that get popular. But I honestly like this, like the SG1 episode Heroes.

I just wished the peopl that use it come up with a reason with why it is being used. Such as a kino or a film crew, not just absently there for no reason.

I’m not generally a fan of the hand-held camera approach, I thought it looked terrible in films like Blair Witch and Cloverfield.
However, I thought it really worked in “Time” and I don’t think I would’ve liked the episode as much if it had shown in the usual manner.
So if they are going to repeat that success, I am all for it.

: I couldn’t agree more. The shakey cam was a bad idea, is a bad idea, and will continue to be a bad idea. TPTB are copycats and also-rans. Cooper & Wright = Berman & Braga. It’s all downhill from here. Ignore the fans and you get what you deserve: failure & cancellation.

Well, I thought Cloverfield sucked big time. The camerawork is fine for a few minutes, but not an hour or two. Heh, Cloverdale is probably a blending of Cloverfield and Sunnydale (or was that vale? – the high school in Buffy). Ah, I can see it now, monsters roaming around alien high school eating students. Well, at least it would be amusing. They could air that episode on Saturday night then ;)

Cloverfield’s shakey-cam BAD idea!
I like to see the detail and enjoy the show, not get dizzy watching a program filmed as if by a 4 year old…
Will not be watching this anymore!

I didn’t like Cloverfield because of the filming style. I was interested to see what a full movie shot like that would be like, and afterwards I definitely felt it was way, way too much. I don’t mind the Kino’s that much (would be great though if they were used for more exploration and less drama filming!), but I definitely don’t want to see more entire episodes based around them and shot in this manner. I’ve pretty much written off the rest of Season 1 since they’ve finished filming it before they could take in and consider the backlash such… Read more »

What, because the word “Clover” is half of the episode title? I think you all are over-reacting to what is little more than conjecture.
On the other hand, at least disliking a certain cinematography technique is a little more valid than the usual “ZOMG SGU is more porn than porn!” complaint.

LMAO! That was a great title/summary.
Just bought Cloverfield (£3) and my God my brain is shaking… If I wanted to watch a shaky video like that, well get any home video made by a child or something :)

Should SGU go to a Cloverfield style of filming, I’ll find something else to watch.

After 5 minutes I’ll be to nauseated to continue.

Handycam style filming as in Cloverfield sucks big time. It was simply too bad to watch. In Blair Witch it wasn’t as bad as in Cloverfield, the script seemed more suited to it, though it wasn’t particularly pleasing either. All-in-all I would say handycam-style filming is just a bad bad thing. I much prefer steady-shot filming which can be properly enjoyed on a full hd screen.

I HATE the shakey camera affect. It makes me sick to watch it. I extremely dislike Blair Witch. It was actually worse than SGU if that is possile. It really doesn’t matter because I am finished watching this ‘tired’ show with it’s WONDERFUL new effects.
