Wow...so defensive over nothing. This is a message board, opinions are discussed, and guess what? Some of those opinions you may not agree with. I only played one year of Pee Wee football, but it doesn't stop me from criticizing my favorite team. Every opinion I've seen was for the most part, reasonable, and not in the "h8r" territory that you're implying.

BTW, you'll find that many of us (myself included), have extensive directing and other behind-the-camera experience, so your efforts at snark could very well backfire on you.

Yeah, I was gonna say, I've never directed anything more complicated than a :30 news promo, but I've damn well worked the other crew jobs long enough to know a bad one when I see one.

He's Matt Ottinger. The trademark is implied. :)

The word "copyright" has actually been Matt Ottingered.

I now await your reply, to compare it with the control group.

Who can they bring in that would do a better job as a rookie at a show with as many moving parts as Price?
Andy Felsher. He would have the shortest learning curve of anyone besides perhaps Fred Witten.

wondering when all these recent firings will stop
Why do you care? Your job's not at stake. What is your job, BTW?

If RBDP gets the reveals he'll be an improvement over Bart. Never mind that it might take 2 1/2 hours to tape a show that now takes 1 1/4.

As chance would have it, I've been directing television for 18 years, including the past ten as the director of the highest-rated television program in my market, and the two Emmy Awards sitting above my monitor as I type this should count for at least a little street cred.  (Not a lot, but at least a little.) Speaking in my official capacity as an Emmy Award winning director, Mr. Eskander's directing sucks.  

IMHO, of course.

I just never understood how he could have so many effects and transitions and other tools (especially with computer technology being so much better) at his disposal, and he chose to use so few. [/quote]

Are you saying that the only people truly qualified to judge the quality of something are people of the same profession? I mean, I don't know how to boil water, but I know the difference between chicken salad and chicken shinola.

As for the comment by our "new poster", directors, hosts, and emcees are often criticized (and praised) on these boards.  Nothing wrong with having an opinion, is there?

Speaking as someone who has directed a game show, no less, his directing blows.  See all the aforementioned references to missing game winning reveals, etc.

Need I say more?

An excellent point, and thanks for having the guts to say it.

I was a director in local TV for around 15 years, and that's precisely why I've never commented on Bart's work:  I know it's much harder than it looks to the average viewer.  Having said that, I think constructive criticism is fine as long as isn't the "I can do better" nonsense.
