I didn't expect you to have any other opinion. But I didn't ask that and you know I didn't ask that. You're ducking the question.
i asked are the new shows were sufficiently worse than the old shows in SD to make the old shows worth watching and the new shows not worth watching?
We have 5 TVs in the house, and only gradually moved to HD (2 TVs were SD, one with a TiVo Series 2 attached, as of a year and a half ago). Absolutely, shows were better in HD. But that doesn't mean that we didn't enjoy the shows in SD. I care more about HD than my wife - the most used TV was the Series 2 TiVo connected SD set in her sewing room. We've watched a lot of SD shows (both new and old, without a major difference between them), and they can still be enjoyed, contrary to what you seem to be claiming.
