It's unfortunate that most of the things broadcast would be complete shit, and therefore unwatchable for me. The only channels of interest in this area being PBS, Discovery, and INHD which have the ocassional Kubrick film. Oh, and CBS for Letterman, because he really is beautiful in HD.
It has to be said - Torchwood has many serious failings, but amongst them is not the lack of Jack Barrowman in HD. ^_^

Oh, congratulations, INHD - you've just declared I don't have Flash. Berks. And not in the Home Counties sense.

Is it wrong of me to wish to see Ian Hislop in HD? (And Angus Deayton, I'd hope. *sigh* I do enjoy the rotating hosts shtick, but still..)
Oh quite. :D

I suppose Channel 4 was the same way when it first began. BBC3 had their share when they started. Irritating anyway.

Yes. Enough is enough. Just bring back Angus for good, with Bruce Forsyth given a standing invitation.
