People Who Have Only Seen One Episode of 'Lost' Will Never Understand It (AOL TV)

Apr 6th 2010 4:15AM LOL. There is no work involved or rewarding goal coming from watching Lost. Namechecking old books is not intellectually stimulating when the core story is so nonexistent.

The reason why you can't explain Lost to anyone now is because it makes no sense. That's not good.

Start the 3D TV Revolution Without Me (AOL TV)

Apr 3rd 2010 9:11AM Sports in 3D is a pretty incredible experience. I would recommend actually seeing it before deciding it's worthless, just in case. Having things flying out of the TV is simple gimmickry and isn't really how 3D sports broadcasts actually work, where the extra depth and clarity caused by the extra visual information makes it a noticeable upgrade over HD. Gazing down a long fairway and seeing it more like you're actually standing there instead of staring at a flat 2D image that greatly loses detail as the distance increases is impressive, if you see it, you'll understand why they went to the effort.

Still, don't take my word for it -- actually go see it, not just some kids movie and extrapolating from there. I'll be at the cinema this weekend watching the Final Four in 3D, just like we saw the BCS Championship a couple of years ago, it's a worthwhile experience if there's a theater nearby.

Also, just a note -- there are several cable providers other than the ones listed who will be carrying the 3D broadcast in the U.S. and Canada, and it's viewable on a computer with the proper equipment on Masters.com

TV Squad Ten: Top Ten ESPN shows from worst to first (AOL TV)

Nov 25th 2009 7:44AM I love when I catch sports reporters so I can see Mitch Albom chewing some athlete out for a lack of integrity and I get to remember why I never read his columns.

Sep 16th 2009 7:01PM I'm glad they included a Chuck Mangione appeareance.

Panasonic Full HD 3D experience eyes-on (Engadget)

Sep 11th 2009 12:34PM I wear glasses. It's not something I'd want to wear all day, but they fit fine.

NFL to let Cowboys giant HD scoreboard stay as-is, at least for 2009 (Engadget)

Aug 30th 2009 7:41PM If you read the article, you'd know that when the screen is raised for U2, it won't work, and they'll have to lower it again to make it work. Also, not old news.

Thank you.

Digsby responds to claims of shady money-making tactics (Download Squad)

Aug 14th 2009 10:38AM That's odd, because I must have seen it and opted out during the install, since it was disabled on my computer and I didn't do the most thorough job of reading the installer, but I do check anything where I have an option. The lifehacker post made it seem like it was just enabled unless you went in later and disabled it which wasn't the case.

The Closer: Smells Like Murder (AOL TV)

Aug 13th 2009 10:07PM Brenda Lee not realizing that she was eating weed brownies was completely unbelievable and blew the episode. She's this great investigator but can't tell when brownies have an extra ingredient, or when she's high herself? Nah. Leave some BS like that for a show like CSI or NCIS, not The Closer.
