The Project


#3313

What I like about The Project is it’s pace. Packages are under 3 minutes (and are often comical) and interviews are lively. This new opener is a part of it- love it.


#3314

I like it but the music is too LOUD!

I can’t hear what they’re saying in parts of it. It would be better to turn it down while the headlines are read out.


#3315

I agree. But don’t get rid of the music all together (even during the 7pm headlines) as it keeps things snappy.


#3316

I’m not saying get rid of it. Again, all I’m saying is it’s too LOUD!


#3317

Get your walking stick out grandpa and hit that screen :stuck_out_tongue:


#3318

It’s probably like the trick they do with commercials, put the sound up to get people’s attention that the show is on.


#3319

FFS. I’m saying its too loud and you miss the headline or the snippet of comment they play.

I’m not saying I can’t hear any of it, you recalcitrant. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

ADORE this opening. It’s bang-on the direction they need to be going - offering an alternative news broadcast, with a side of humour.

It’s basically the CBS Evening News package with its use of still photography:

My Grandfather uses ear plugs sometimes when watching tv. Perhaps that might help :stuck_out_tongue:


#3322

Only when you’re around. :thinking: Maybe that’s because he can’t handle listening to you any more. I know how he feels. :joy:


#3323

:joy: I have been wondering why he always falls asleep when I am around.


#3324

In all seriousness I do agree that the music could be dialled back a notch when they are reading the news. I like how they are doing it to grab the attention.


#3325

I don’t like the music playing while their reading out the news headlines…and shock horror l’m agreeing with @JBar it’s way too loud .


#3326

It was bound to happen again…eventually. Buy yourself a lottery ticket because today is your lucky day. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Thursday-
Peter Van Onselen is filling in for Waleed tonight.


#3328

Dare I say as an American that The Project does it better than CBSEN.


#3329

What kind of idiot does a somersault with a gun in his pocket?


#3330

Are you asking @PointJules that because he is American?


#3331

It was just a general question after watching that CBS Evening News clip.


#3332

If that person didn’t have their gun secured properly to their body and on safety, they are irresponsible. Yep, those types do exist.

In any case, if anyone has a show recorded from this year, I’d love to see it.
