10 Terrible CGI Moments In Big Budget TV Shows

Even though the screen is smaller, there's no excuse for CGI to look THIS bad.


Visual effects have been around since long before the television was in its earliest stages, and the idea of using special effects to produce realistic imagery has led to a world in which we rarely see an image that isn't doctored in some form or another. Sorry to break it to you.

As technology has improved, so has our capacity to create images using it, and it turns out that the entertainment industry has since come to rely pretty heavily on the use of computer generated imagery. Who knew, right?

Given that TV is one of the most popular entertainment industries in the world, it would follow that some of the biggest and most expensive shows would make use of the latest and most realistic CGI possible.

Unfortunately, that isn't always true.

The use of CGI is essential in genres such as sci-fi, fantasy and horror, where making the outlandish as realistic as possible is the name of the game, yet even the biggest shows often make major blunders where visual effects are concerned.

Whether through poor design or poor execution, let's take a look at 10 of the worst CGI moments in big budget shows.
