I know this is all obvious, and while I knew it already, it didn't really hit me until recently.... I just started watching my Family Guy (season 3). I never really thought about this (which is bizarre) until now. I guess the thing that stuck out in my mind was the fact that these episodes were just recently broadcast for the first time. I had actually just watched a few of these episodes on my Replay TV. When I started the first episode, I started thinking to myself "Do I really want to start watching these right now, or do I want to wait", since I had just recently watched them, I didn't want it to feel like I was watching them all over again. I wanted some sort of excitement to them, so I figured maybe I should wait a while until I had forgotten about them and then they'd be more exciting when I started to watch them again. But when the blue light came on my receiver (indicating Dolby 5.1), it hit me. Not only is the picture better than originally broadcast, but the sound was MUCH better than what was on tv. And to add the fact that there was no damn Fox logo in the corner of the screen, I was amazed at my realization at how much BETTER tv shows (on DVD) are than their original presentation. As much as we talk about trying to make movies (on DVD) as close to the look and sound of their original theatrical presentation, TV shows are one of the only forms where it is actually BETTER, on DVD, than it was originally presented on cable TV! DAMN! No wonder why tv on dvd is so damn popular.
