It wasn't a "crative" or "innovative" show. Rather it was a show that tried ever so hard to clothe itself in the trappings of the current bad-directing-as-hype nonsense.
Apparently, if you direct a show as badly as you possibly can by playing with your zoom and shaking the camera you're supposed to be "hip", "edgy", "real" and whatever buzzword is cool that particular day.
Of course, shooting a show in that way is nothing but pseudo-intellectual self-gratification of the worse order.

It won't be missed... at all!
