The good and bad of 3D TV
Does EastEnders really need the added dimension?
by Dan Sung

It's one thing to be working on getting 3DTV into our homes but it's another challenge altogether for the production companies to figure out what works in this new medium and what doesn't. Some of the genres speak for themselves but with tests already under way many of the results have been surprising to say the least. So, what should we be looking forward to watching in 3D from the comfort of our own homes and what might be worth giving a miss?

Used and Approved

Horror
In the world of 3D, horror is a touch on the obvious side but there's no denying it works. The vast majority of the features in the Golden Era were designed to freak the audience out as much as possible by having creatures and deadly objects leap out the screen. Even though you know it's a trick, when things really pop out at you, it still makes you flinch. If it was B-movie heaven in the 50s just imagine how much more effective horror is in the hands of director's like Wes Craven and John Carpenter.

to my surprise it was a rather positive read, however at the end they had 2 points called
Stick to the flat
1.Dramas, soaps & reality TV
2.Subtitles
1.first off, if someone were to come in and say "oh CNBC and other channels for financial news do not require color, or for that matter why do dramas and reality tv require color- doesn't all that saturated color overload your senses, wouldn't you rather watch your soaps in black and white" wouldn't you consider that person somewhat off? 3d is good for EVERYTHING

2.it all depends on the depth that everything is on. this can be adjusted in video post so almost everything looks like it's inside the screen, subtitles shouldn't be a problem there.

Yeah, cause making "reality TV" in 3D would totally kill the experience. Everyone knows real-life is flat!
