Scott & Ralph I wish to the both of you a Happy New year.

Ralph ? I wonder with a little added bonus at the end of your reviews what would be the best pop corn or movie snack that the families enjoy.

I know some stores sell pop corn that's so bad that you might as well drink a cut of vegetable oil instead of eating the pop corn.

I may have to pick this up it you are able to calibrate 3D. I got my Panasonic Plasma calibrated by an ISF technician, but at the time they did not calibrate 3D. I was told there were no standards to go by to calibrate 3D like there is for 2D.

Not speaking for Ralph but....forget any type of microwave popcorn. Everything about it (except convenience) is bad. Buy an air popper for popcorn. Also buy butter flavored Pam type spray and spray lightly as the popcorn pops and falls out of the popper and into the bowl, then lightly salt. Also you can season with grated parmesan cheese, garlic powder, ground cinnamon,.... Also another good "corn" option. Corn chips (read ingredient list and there should only be 3 main: Corn, veg oil and salt) and salsa. Also I like to make a salsa mix of 75% salsa and 25% non fat plain greek yogurt. Another GREAT snack is a cut veggie tray. You can eat as much as you want with NO guilt and only quality nutrition.

Hi Ralph

Just got finished watching the show. Great job!

I've been reading your reviews here for years so it was really cool to be able to hear the man responsible for all those words. In fact, I'd give what I'm calling "The Ralph Potts audio experience" a rating of 100 out of 100. biggrin.gif

A note on Homeland...

If you were transfixed by season one, please go out of your way to watch season two when the Blu-ray is available. Even if you don't have to review it. As phenomenal as season one was (and it was phenomenal) they actually managed to make season two even better. I know, hard to believe but it's true.


Keep up the great work and happy viewing!

Just watched your interview, and I have to tell you ,what a great job you did. First time watching on my 55" plasma through my Apple TV. I must say, Scott needs to back a way from the camera a little bit.
