Everything New Is Old Again

Began my "preliminary" HDTV shopping today, and I am amazed at how many TVs were trying to look like my parents old B&W monstrosity from thirty years ago. Fake wood coloring, optional cabnets that look institutional at best, and worst of all were the set top shelves that remove every advantage of getting a flat screen TV in the first place. Really, most of the add-ons I found were worse than garbage. The good TVs though, were really good. I will probably take a few more trips and wait for a few more reviews in next months consumer magazines before I buy, but I feel tingly at the thought of a new TV already.
