I’m Not as Blind as I Thought I Was

Meridian, Idaho

We got DirectTV yesterday. Included in our package is HD–high definition–for all of our TVs.


We’ve never had HD before. We’d seen it at other people’s houses, but I guess we never paid that much attention to it then because we were too busy visiting…

WOW–are we shocked at how clear everything is on TV now. ๐Ÿ™‚

For example, we watched a commercial for the new San Andreasย movie.

On Dish, where we didn’t have HD because we would have had to pay more for it, the commercial looked somewhat like this:


With HDTV it looks more like this:

maxresdefaultI had no idea how much differently things would look in HD. Amazing.

All this time, I thought I needed better glasses.

I just needed to get a better satellite package or cough up more money for a better picture. ย ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Exactly! It is very hard to watch old stuff on TV that is not HD! We can get spoiled so fast.

    1. I’m trying to think of the best movie to watch to show me the capabilities of HD. It’s been years since I’ve watched a movie. Any recommendations, Lorraine?

  2. I do feel sorry for the actors/actresses though because it really magnifies the wrinkles and flaws. It reminds me of how my friend Audrie noticed that the world was full of a lot more 10s when she wasn’t wearing her glasses. giggle.

  3. Good one, Joanne. I like Audrie already! ๐Ÿ™‚ Ever watch Moonlighting–the Cybil Shephard/Bruce Willis series. Any scenes with just Cybil in it had the most amazing glow. Not so much when Bruce was in the scene. Very different lenses for each shot…

  4. I did watch Moonlighting and loved it! I did not notice the difference in their scenes. Kind of a modern day candlelight vs. daylight difference…

    1. There were very few candles lit whenever it was just Cybil in the scene. She looked marvelous! ๐Ÿ™‚
