I don't know if you have noticed but more and more TV shows have this glowy white light look, I hate it! it looks so fake. I watch many HGTV shows and with some I hardly can tell if the color on a wall is really that bright or is it just how it's being recorded.
I know since HD came out the hosts of many shows are not to happy about every wrinkle showing but please just give me a real picture not this fuzzy crap!
