I just got married on Halloween, and my wife and I used some of our dowry to buy a Hi-Def TV w/LCD display.  It was a floor model that was on clearance, so we get a great deal.

And the show is nothing short of amazing.  The color and animation are mind blowing.

It's hard not to watch.

Welcome to PEEL, ringwyrm!

Don't be suprised if this thread gets closed however, because it really isn't Futurama related.

But still welcome to PEEL

Anyway, you might wanna check this out.

Sorry.

I guess I trying to point out the quality of the show, as it really comes thru on the Hi-Def.  No wonder Matt G. said the show was expensive. 

The colors are just sick. 

I've compared to some Anime and the Simpsons, and honestly I don't see anything coming close.  I even played the re-mastered Ghost in the Shell. It's not the same.

It makes me wonder what they did (besides computer animation) that is different from other animation, to get that kind of richness.

I don't see in the FAQ where this thread is wrong.  I guess maybe I'm retarded or something.

First, congratulations on your marriage.  Second, welcome to Peel.

Third, I haven't had a chance to see it on a really high-def TV, but I have seen it on a high-res computer screen on my gaming rig.  It's a pretty sweet sight to see.  And the DVD-quality sound on the DVDs is just amazing.

Don't worry ringwyrm, you did nothing wrong, it's just that this thread will probably get closed because it has nothing to do with Futurama the show itself. It's just about your new TV and how the show looks on it.

Sorry.  I didn't intend for it to be about my tv.

I guess I was so blown away by the difference, it was almost like watching the episodes for the first time again.  I thought others would relate to that (the difference can be clearly seen on any decent computer monitor).  There is a lot of detail and other subtleties that are lost, and I think it's a shame because I think it was intended to be seen the way the artists drew it and animated it.  It's clear a lot of innovation was taking place when they were making the episodes.

Anyway, I would have made this comment in a separate thread had I known it existed that talked about how the show was animated or how the show looked on different displays.  There are such threads, such as:
 http://www.peelified.com/cgi-bin/Futurama/1-000562/

Unfortunately, I was not able to locate this thread with PEEL's search engine with the words "CGI" and "software".  However, google found it with "cgi software site :peelified.com"  In fact the first three hits are all relevant threads. 

I'll use google in the future to search for relevant threads.

Welcome to PEEL Ringwyrm, if your TV vanishes it is because a jealous PEELer stole it  tongue
