I just love the bright picture mixed with crazy black levels so much. I watched dark knight today and the imax scenes looks amazing!
You might try calibration. I've had mine ISF'd and the greens are fine. There's tremendous variation with greens from broadcast to broadcast and even within a single broadcast with multiple cameras. That's the way it should be.
If you've ever shot video or ever done photography, you'll see exactly that same variation. Depending on your angle to the sun, the clarity of the sky or the time of the day, greens can look somewhat under-saturated to very saturated regardless of how you view those photos or videos and regardless of what properly adjusted display you view it on.
Now granted, I've seen many displays where greens are super-saturated regardless of the broadcast or camera angle. To me these displays look unnatural, but I suspect there are some that love those overly vivid colors.
Watching a Yanked game on the YES network (known for high quality broadcasts), greens look great.
