1. I think they’re cheap. I think it’s a cheap move. Even in The Sopranos, when they did that extended long dream sequence, I just feel like it’s a cheap move. Even on shows I like — Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Sopranos — it never, ever works for me. I feel like you’re trying to show us the character’s feelings through means that you should just do in scenes that are happening in reality. A TV drama is already a made-up world, and then you have to create a made-up world within the made-up world, I just feel like they always feel obvious. And I hate symbolism.
