Huge Craters

Having a high def tv is usually a good thing. But there's the occasional disadvantage. This point was brought home last nigh when I watched the season premiere of Hell's Kitchen.

Gordon Ramsey's face looks quite lined on a normal set, but in high def it's scary! That fellow has flesh issues--and when he's giving his "I am pissed" look--it really is intimidating now.

One interesting thing, Hell's Kitchen starts a few minutes after the hour so I ended up recording the last few minutes of that singing show. It was the first time I'd ever seen it--and those people are really good. I was quite impressed.

I assume it's late in the season and the really bad ones have been eliminated--but even so, I can see all those folk having recording contracts after this is done. Still, I doubt I'll ever bother to watch the show. I just don't have any interest in watching people sing.

Yes, that "singing show" is good this year. Can't imagine watching Hell's Kitchen in low def, let alone high def - there's too much yelling!

With hi-def, we can see the layers of make-up on anchormen and women. And usually whatever they're trying to cover up. People will have to go back to vaseline on lenses now. :)

I don't watch Hell's Kitchen - too much anger and angst. Idol is excellent this year and any of the remaining contestants could win and I'd be happy.

I don't watch Hell's Kitchen, I've had a dislike for Gordon Ramsey for as long as I can remember...I don't watch 'that singing show' either! My god what do I watch?!

no idea what singing show you're on about ... one of those 'idol' thingies maybe? The problem is ... lots of people sing really, really well ... but what makes a singer who can sell records is something else ... what i don't know exactly .. but definitely something else ...
