I completely agree. 95% of my TV watching is completely non-critical
watched on screens that aren't HD capable, sitting in rooms that
aren't properly set up as a home theater and without anything more
than standard stereo sound.

Fundamentally I'm not looking for a theater experience but once or
twice a week. Certainly not when watching the 7th rerun of some Law &
Order episode.

The current NetFlix Watch Instantly service is great for this. just
pick something out and turn it on. I have a PC in my office streaming
something from them probably 8-10 hours a day as I work on stuff.
