? I found myself tuning off FG....it was an hour of boredom..
BTW note they have changed the opening scene in FG for HD...Peter looks different when he appears singing at the beginning...and when they go to the stage, the purple area is not the width of the screen anymore but a runway down the center...in NON HD episodes, the purple covers the entire bottom of the stage area...even those in 16x9 "HD" which evidently are NOT HD...You CAN see a difference in the opening between HD and SD..some details are very high in the true HD episodes...in the 16x9 non HD, it looks the same as the 4x3 feeds.
I agree with you about the content of those shows. FG and American Dad can be stale at times and The Simpsons ought to be cancelled.
I also agree with what you said weeks ago about Marc Stevens. S&P for whatever people might say about both of them, were fun rock n' roll people that loved some good laughs, they were not about bashing peoples' politics or insulting people that disagreed with them. They did not attack listeners. They were also more intelligent than those 2 tired clowns that replaced them.
Also, you mentioned a favorite classic film Inherit The Wind. That film is used in a 2 hour Nova Documentary, Judgment Day Intelligent Design On Trial. I recommend that dvd to anyone with a mind for science, especially since Louisiana is reopening a debate within some school boards that I thought was closed over 80 years ago.
I'm also sorry for your friend in the hospital. It's always important to check on friends in hospitals. I would rather go to a field hospital in Ghana than some of the hospitals in Louisiana. I'm sure the hospitals are better in Texas, just like the highways.
Thank you and OTAhead for keeping an eye on those lps and lds. We need more people like you that have the perspective of broadcasters and know the responsibilities that TV stations must bear in order to have the privilege of a broadcast license. When TV and radio stations were no longer run by broadcasters but by salespeople and consultants that's when things really went downhill.
