Have you ever seen Gorilla Grodd and King Shark from The Flash????
I really enjoyed Hercules: the Legendary Journeys
The capitol from PLL should've classified. The first version, that was previewed, was even worse, and the only thing that was different was that the scene took place during the day.
That must the reason Doctor Who has been nominated for loads of visual effects awards over the last decade
The Walking Dead?????????
Do movies next. 'Cause Sharknado 1-6 will take up 6 of those spots.
This whole list can be easily made with scenes from Flash and doctor who. These shows should pay their viewers to look at their garbage project..
While not perfect, Merlin definitely got better over time. I mean it started in 2008, CGI for any show didn't look great at that point. The first effects were akin to ITV's Primeval, another British show and competitor, but by 2012 the dragon (and even a few creature shots from 2010) looked a lot more realistic.
I totally loved Hercules when I was a child
I always took it for granted that British + sci fi = horrible special effects. Anyone who has seen "Blake's 7" or "Red Dwarf" will agree. (Incidentally, I LOVE both of those shows.)
bit harsh on the dragon don't you think….ive seen way worst
Piss off, Doctor Who is decent!
Piss off, Merlin was decent!
Yeah the effects on Terranova where kinda weird but better story and characters than a Lot of series. Today
1. Every CW show
I agree with all of them. However, the cheesey special effects on Dr. Who is a big part of it's charm and intentional. Steming from when the show first started in 1960's and had no budget of any kind.
How about the shows with best looking special effects?
8:16 – I would actually disagree with the use of forced perspective in Hercules, an effect that was used to bring to life the show's various humanoid Giants and Titans, as it was the only really good effect the series had compared to the poorly done CGI creatures. It also allowed for said Giants to have real screen time and related personalities which would have been impossible to do had they gone the full-CGI route like the dragons and dinosaurs from elsewhere in the same list.
I disagree with just about everything you said. They are television shows not Hollywood blockbusters. And some of those like Doctor Who and Merlin are for children as well as adults
I don't care that it was cheesy Hercules was awesome growing up in the 90's
Hold my beer
I present to all of you the visual effects on tv shows from the Phillipines seriously watch a specific show named "victor magtanggol* then you can see worst
Every scene in grimm should be here.
To be fair, there are no such thing as good CGI because those are mistaken from reality. So saying "bad" CGI is nonsensical.
The BBC is publicly funded. Much like PBS. That's why the effects suck.
The Ringer wasn't THAT shitty.
What, no Warehouse 13?
Merlin!? Wtf that show was epic!
Star Trek will always get a pass for low quality special effects due to outstanding writing and story telling.
Eccles-ton, not Eccle-shon, and N-sixty-four, not N-six-four. You're welcome.
What about the transformation scenes from the Animorphs show, or am I the only one who remembers that show?
18m wow lot of subs
Okay, you wanna talk bad effects on TV shows? Remember the original Dark Shadows series, and when the time came to feature Barnabus Collins' transformation into a vampire after Angelique cursed him? Yeah, I know, it was the late 60's, when this was made, and there was only so much you can do with CSO effects, (Colour Separation Overlay), but still.
Oh COME ON! How can you not mention Starlost??? Douglas Trumbull coming off of 2001: A Space Odyssey getting to horse around with video effects as the new medium in a Canadian studio. Absolutely HIDEOUS even back in it's day!
Hercules was & always will be awesome!!!!!
Starts with Doctor WhoMe: Wow
The CDC explosion in TWD was sooooo fucking bad
Top 1 should be victor magtanggol
teen wolf wasnt that bad
Once Upon a Time's cgi went down hill since season 1
All the SYFY channel shows and original movies have shitty special effects
What about that show on syfy called defiance? Horrible cgi, I remember they also used cgi for a car fishtailing, like why couldn’t they just have had a stunt driver do that instead? Anyone else remember that shit?
I thought Mutant X would have made this list! 😕 but anyway there not saying there bad shows just some bad CGI moments…
Anyone remember the CGI deer from The Walking Dead?
A lot of these shows were 80’s to 90’s not the fancy technology we have today. Give them some slack.
"Ashy Larry" as the clickbait.
Yeah the effects in Doctor Who kind of suck but that was part of its charm.
But still, season 11’s effects look promising.
