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.

This is what I hate about the internet, "You are wrong and I am right" over something that is down to perception. I get defensive when someone blatantly (or deliberately) misses the point of the entire post and goes into talking about whether the video is mathematically correct ... :| ... The point was originally was

decent upscaler + existing DVD collection != you have to get everything again in hidef.

Predator on standard definition good CRT TV (like the one I mentioned) look fantastic and enjoy the movie (and I have seen it in the cinema), so if it looks good upscaled ... well bonus!

Whether it is a videophile's wet dream I do not care.

As for Lost, it started out on a beach. In many scenes they were on a beach (including some guy making a massive SOS outta stones and then is told to stop by the black lady that did have cancer) ... so you know you have to forgive me for thinking quite a lot of it took place on a beach, because quite a lot of it ... did.
