Honest answer: Sorry to report it’s just because we couldn’t get our series directors to understand how subtle the shaking effect should be. And since we were rarely able to be on the set in Mexico, we couldn’t over-see shots like that. The result was the directors had the camera operators shake the cameras really violently, resulting in the comical, unrealistic effect seen in the series.
New answer provided by a helpful fan (thanks!): The Graboids in T-1 were moving slowly because they were listening for prey in the store. By the time of the series, the townsfolk have sensors which warn of El Blanco’s presence, so they remain still when he’s around. Since El Blanco never senses prey as he passes near the store, he continues moving at top speed, hence causing a greater amount of shake. We buy it!
