HD PLEASE!

Actually this could be another segment of Grinding my Gears!

Once again a new Fall season of TV wonderment begins... And once again a slew of high profile shows remain in low tech, standard definition (SD)... Blech!

Two of my favorite shows (The Amazing Race and Family Guy) both began new seasons last night and both returned in miserable, bars-on-the-side, non-HD. I can't think of a show that would look better in HD than Amazing Race with all of its gorgeous globe-spanning locations. And what show has made more money in the last decade than Family Guy? You would think that Fox and MacFarlane would finally splurge for the HD treatment.

It's almost impossible to walk into Wal-Mart or Best Buy and buy a non-HD TV. So it's time for the networks to step up and start giving us our money's worth.
