Well, 8 straight hours of no HD on Thursday night. Maybe I need to pay more attention. I'll start DVRing everything that isn't already on Blu ray and report back in one week what I find. I...

Considering the lack of posts lately, I guess there hasn't been much "true" HD stuff on the channel. Very frustrating that so little of what TCM HD is playing is in HD, and even more frustrating...

Agreed. This season was definitely better than last season, when I wasn't sure if I'd continue watching. I still don't like Joan, and I really didn't like how they elevated her abilities to the...

I suspect Lynch and Frost will be co-showrunners, with Lynch putting in more time "directing (photography and working with the actors)," and Frost busy with everything else. Does it sound like a...

I have faith that this isn't just a money grab by Lynch, and that in 25 years he has thought up entertaining, if not compelling, material. I'd be a lot more skeptical if not for Mulholland Drive.

This episode was really odd, and the first one of the season where the ongoing storyline lost its continuity.

The weakness in Gotham is its over reliance on plot. Bruno needs to slow things...

On my Dish Hopper they ALL say HD in the info screen. The only thing that changes is that some movies have the closed captioning symbol, and some do not.

Cat o Nine Tails looked ok, but DVD quality at best. I don't have the Blu ray to compare to my recording, but I would be shocked if it was HD. Plus it is not a Warner title, so I kinda doubt TCM...

I am having problems turning on the fire stick. Is there a way to do that, by hitting one of the buttons on the remote? Shouldn't it detect when your tv comes on? The only way the fire stick comes...

It would be great if it was only a year that they had to wait. I've believed for a while now that TCM wasn't going HD because Warner didn't want the increased competition for Warner Archive Instant.

It would be nice to know beforehand what movies are going to be showing in HD. Maybe eventually on the TCM site? Presumably most, if not all of the movies already on Blu ray will be in HD. ...

If they really did switch over to "true HD," it seems like way too much of a coincidence that they pulled the trigger at a time when they are unable to come to an agreement with Dish.
