As I'm sitting here at home watching my Shutter Island BD on my plasma, I don't recognise your description of modern TV at all. All I can see is excellence in image capture, process and display.

That's all changed now, it's flat screen compressed digital hell, the viewer watches TV on a device that comes nowhere near the look of a CRT television and now with digital acquisition colourists spend more time faking the film look ( more artificial grain anyone? ) just as well we have these fancy do everything colour correctors, i need all those windows and plug ins in order to con the viewer (and the client) into believing that the image they're watching has more dynamic range that it actually has, rarely do I finesse a look from film anymore, instead I have to drag it kicking and screaming from a camcorder on steroids.
