My mother just bought a 50" HD LCD TV (although she doesn't have an HD signal...yet). And I love it. Just imagine how great it'll be to watch some of my favorite shows ("Eye on Springfield", "All My Circuits", "Sports Night", "Everybody Loves Hypnotoad", "Quahog 5 News", "Gumble 2 Gumble", "Knight Boat", etc.), not to mention my favorite movie (Hail to the Chimp).
And to the curious, the first movie played on the big screen was Blow.
