Must See HDTV

HDTV is going to tear Hollywood apart. I never realized it, but low-definition is the celebrity's friend. Who can tell if you've got wrinkles or bags under your eyes when your face is the size of a postage stamp and twenty feet away? But the age of high-def is here, and it's going to send TV stars scrambling for surgery. That's because high-def shows every wrinkle, every bulge, every flaw in all its glory, on faces blown up to the size of a pizza pie. Pancake makeup just won't cut it anymore. TV Predictions even offers a most beautiful/most ugly list every year. Jessica Alba made the best list, but Teri Hatcher made the worst. I don't have high-def, but I'm curious now to see what my favorite actresses look like in detail.

Yeesh that's scary. What really bugs me bout HDTV though is that all the analog TVs are going to made forcibly obsolete. Who in the world would want everyone in America to have to go out and by a new television set?

I saw some Tonight Show? broadcast on HDTV a few years ago and it was pretty frightening. I don't remember who the guest was but you could see every pore and lump on his face. The image looked 3D though, like the host's mug was floating in our living room.
