>>Gee, I hope all Canadians aren't as sensitive.  My comment was just a gentle
>>sigh at the ongoing loss of work from which many of my friends and fellow
>>colorists here in LA are suffering.  Not a slam on Canada by any means.
>>I agree that there are some Canadian crews and post technicians who are
>>world-class caliber people.  I just feel bad to see an American show, on
>>"The USA Network," shoot in another country just to save money (whether it
>>was Australia, or New Zealand, or any other country).  If it was a CBC show,
>>I'd have no problem with them shooting in Canada.
>>So my criticism is more with the producers, not at all with the fine people
>>of Canada.  And the show looks terrific and has a very distinctive visual
>>style, which was my only point.
