Multimedia, AV An interesting anecdote at MinimalMac about television being broken. The author's young daughter, who is growing up in a Netflix/Hulu/iTunes/etc. household, was confronted with actual TV for the first time, and wonders why she can't pick what to watch, why the shows are being interrupted all the time, and so on. Clearly - TV is broken.

Sorry I don't really care what other videophiles think. I chose Predator because the filming and colours on a standard definition television (Sony WEGA CRT that I had) looks fantastic. That is what I am comparing it to..

You're welcome to think Predator looks fantastic. But the general consensus disagrees. It's common knownledge the quality of Predator both on DVD and bluray is less than stellar.

I think Lost looks like any of TV series on a beach, newer films with all their CGI effects look weird on hi-def television because everything is a little too crisp. I rather watch something like Generation Kill in hi-def than crap like Lost even if the "quality" isn't there.

Very very little of Lost takes place on a beach, and it has very little CGI. So basically you're just talking out of your ass.

You don't need to feel so defensive -- nobody really cares about your personal opinions on this stuff, it's just the blatantly wrong info that needs to be corrected.
