Yeah, if only there was some kind of premium movie channel that was a sister network to TNT....
Kind of like a home box office.
I think TNT has potential, it's got great content (what else would you watch in the daytime: Judge Maria, General Hospital, or the News at Noon?) it just needs to do some small things.
First, stop with any and all promos in-movie (including "bug" promos), it's tasteless and distracts from the film. No Lord of the Rings fan gives a crap about your four hours of Law & Order tonight.
Second, no more live-action in-person promos, during any content ever. And, NO SOUND!!!
Third, stop with the stretching, HDTVs contain equipment that does it for us
Fourth, get the HD done right. It's understandable when a show can't be in HD because it hasn't yet been remastered, but when you have the master AVAILABLE, use it!
Fifth, actually start caring when something's not in HD, considering it's really weird to watch a dramatic series (Angel, X Files, etc) in such low resolution and bad quality. Demand it be available, that's how the original networks did it.
