I never used to watch NCIS, CSI Miami or CSI NY but started watching because they weren't that bad but looked great in HD and sounded great in 5.1 In fact after watching regularly I sort became a fan of NCIS, not so much the CSI's. But I still record them :)
Just wondering if HD broadcasts has changed other folks viewing patterns or choices. I guess the one change for me is, I rarely watch TV1/2 now since their HD content is pretty slim and they don't have 5.1 audio. Talk about a half pie effort!
