Reality of how shows are made these days...

The reality of how shows are made these days are with lots and lots of green screens. The technical term is Chroma key and what it does is a technique for mixing two images or frames together in which a colour (or a small colour range) from one image is removed (or made transparent), revealing another image behind it. It has been in the filming practice for decades now and I guess more apparent in TV shows now too. Check out the video below.

I guess with the technologies of today, it is much easier to alter anything you like giving the watcher the illusion that that's the scene shot.
