    With global warming, the world is a much brighter place today.

    :D

    Again...I don't see this as being dark at all (cinematography or mood). And I don't run my Panny plasma hot either...looks fine to me.

    Interesting, this is only program among the current bunch I've been watching where this effect seems noticeable. Other programs look just fine. I've used calibration DVD to adjust my settings, then bumped brightness/contrast just a tad above what "they" claim is optimal.

    I wonder if they're shooting with actual film. That effect could definitely be created by the film type.

    It definitely looks more drab and "old" to me, but I have a decent, large screen and I have no problem seeing everything.

    As to the other kind of dark--it is weird to be rooting for the KGB agents, but I am. They are definitely your typical cold blooded killer agents and they are the bad guys. Why don't I root for John Boy and the neighbor? :confused:

    The husband does show a softer side sometimes, so maybe he will eventually push his idea of defecting.

    It's a stretch the stuff they are able to do without the kids being suspicious. I wonder how they did it when the kids were little and couldn't be left alone? Maybe they had a KGB nanny.

    I'm guessing the mom did less active fieldwork then....which actually goes a long way toward explaining her enthusiasm for her job now. :D
