i've been noticing a trend on recent HDTV shows. they all look great. from clothes to sets to everything about the physical values of the show is just top notch. the cameras, angles and lighting everyone used. very polished. i'm comparing this against shows from the 90s, 80s and before... where you KNEW it was a TV show by watching a few seconds of it... like Married w/Family, Seinfeld, All in the Family, etc. some of them are stored on VHS! TV has come very far from the days of old.
