    Are you talking about channels or something else? AFAIK the platform is the same regardless if it comes pre-installed or from the box/stick.

    Hey there. I'm one of those people. I'm speaking from experience, not "piggy backing."

    First: I bought a 32" 1080p TV primarily for my XBox. It's fine but I hate it. Part of the reason I hate it...

    I glanced at a few "best of lists" on some fan blogs and this is def the vibe I got, too. Like, the show really takes off around season 3 or 4 and gets wild.

    But I dunno, man. I think the first...

    Yeah, but let's not pretend "2001" existed in a vacuum. Clarke was a golden age sci-fi writer. The movie is based on a story from 1951. Its roots are in a form of pulp that Stu very clearly...
