Anything with Teri Hatcher in HD is worth checking out!

Where did you see that it's going to be in "HD" ?? Doh !! ABC's page now has the little "HD" logo on it.... I'm positive it did NOT before.

FWIW, I've asked my wife a few times if "we" plan to watch it..... It is tagged in the DVR to record, just in case.

Well ya, I'm looking forward to it. It's just on against the game. Damn you Comcast and your non-DVR having ways!

Yes, on a regular basis. But don't tell my wife.

As far as programs on in HDTV, see the HDTV Programming Synopsis. ABC does all primetime in HD, except news & reality.

Ha! That made me chuckle .

Since I'm too lazy to go over to ABC's site to see for myself, anyone want to tell me the premise of the show? Although it sounds like it might not matter what the premise is .

I hope it and Boston Legal will be good. I've been excited about nothing else premiering this season.

Anything with Teri Hatcher is worth a look. A bunch of looks, actually. Long, lingering looks.....

I've got ReplayTV! It just does me no good if I want to catch this in HD. Same goes for Criminal Intent since the game usually bleeds over to about 9:30. I'm looking for that 6412 box like a herion addict standing in line at a methadone clinic.

So far (15 minutes into the show), I am not impressed with it. The PQ is really good but the story line is not doing anything for me.

So far, at the 24 minute point, the Boston affiliate has yet to flip the HD switch.

You must not be a chick. My wife loves it.

This belongs on HBO or Cinemax, a channel with more liberal 'standards'.

I can't believe I am saying this, but after 6 hours of non-stop football, I turned over the remote. Desperate Housewives it is.

Agreed. She looks the best of all of the women on the show.

Is it me or are these new shows just bland? I thought it was fun at times but I spent big gaps of time web-browsing or daydreaming. It seemed slow and this is with 50% of the running time dedicated to commercials. Next week, given a choice of this or Criminal Intent or my beloved Adult Swim.....

My sincere thanks to everyone who makes AVSforum such an awesome resource.

Yep, A lot of these shows aren't working for me, can't get into. I really don't even like the crime shows, only watch them because they're great for HDTV.

Most of the shows on networks are still targeted towards the baby boomer age group, still hard for me to find a good comedy...
