    I don’t get all the excitement about James Bamford as a director. I find the camerawork shaky (although better now), he sacrifices emotional beats for stunts, and the stunts themselves are too often shot so dark, I can’t see whats going on..

      I’m inclined to agree Kate, unfortunately, Bamford’s camera work often involves too much motion that takes me out of the moment because you’re so aware that you’re watching a camera moving around. I agree that some of his episodes don’t pack much emotional punch, but that might just be a consequence of three of them happening in the first half of season five, where I felt the show was lacking heart generally.
