I initially added two height speakers to go to 5.2.2 on the way to 5.2.4 to 7.2.4. I think a pair a height speakers will add a nice element for you for shows and movies - I enjoyed them. They will give you a taste for ATMOS and DTS:x and you can use the upmixers on your AVR to simulate the height speakers as well.
