Most are now done with computer generated effects. They don't need big studios now. Besides, some of the backdrops looked so fake in the old shows and you could see people's shadows on them when it was supposed to be a desert background, and light coming from two or more directions.
Star Trek was one of the worst in the respect of obvious studio lighting. Also very obvious where the raised flooring met the cyclorama to create the forced perspective. The Mayberry town at Desilu was nice, showed up in numerous show/movies with various signage changes, eventually came back ON Star Trek in a time travel sequence. . Of course the "insert shots" (cars, stage coaches, planes) of most shows (before CG) were marginal at the very best, and most were downright poor.
Thanks for the MHO, D.

Does it get nostalgic for you?
yes, but in some ways I get sad because it has changed a lot.
That can be true but not always.
So, that is where you left your heart.
That's pretty funny but actually it's the truth I did
So you break all the mirrors you look in?
No... How is that relevant?
Just wondering if you don't look in a mirror because you were hit with a dozen ugly sticks.
How is my appearance relevant to whether or not I think about what things looked like 20+ years ago?
never mind, you don' get my humor.
