I've never tried media files; have a receiver and BD player for that. I know we lose the tuner, but I don't need that either. Is it just detailed picture and sound adjustments?

Loved how it all ended. Thought it was just about perfect. Raylan was never going to shoot Boyd in cold blood, but he would have relished killing him in a "justified" manner. Which means he was...

It's just brilliant. I've been saying it's the best thing on TV since that first season. And, like 'Breaking Bad' and precious few others, it gets better every year. Emmy worthy acting from Matthew...

It does, and then some. Especially now that this show has wrapped, 'The Americans' is the "Best show on TV, full-stop" (thanks to the brilliant Andy Greenwald of Grantland for that quote).
