I've spent much of the weekend playing with my new TV, the Panasonic PT-53wx42. I've wanted a big screen TV for a long time, and now I finally have one. You haven't seen a DVD until you've seen it on a 53" HDTV widescreen. This is definitely going to reduce the amount of films I see in a theatre, as my basement doesn't have strangers yelling back at the screen or snoring loudly in the seat behind me. I swear that if I'm ever called to jury duty, and the case involves someone accused of inflicting violence upon an inconsiderate movie-goer, I'm going to acquit. Update:Coincidentally, I just found that Wil Wheaton posted a similar (and longer) rant on his weblog too. Great minds think alike, I guess.
