While interesting, how can they call it HD? there is no way the footage they have can be close to HD color, yes, HD no.

Watched it all last night! Awesome show, and Gary Sinise did an excellent job narrating it. Wish I had a DVR, will just have to buy the DVD's.

Good point Borski.

However, I watch TV on a 100" screen so the picture quality & format is CRITICAL.

So as poor as the picture quality of WWII footage is, watching it in an HD format makes it both viewable & enjoyable on the "big screen" in a home theater environment.

Although it wouldn't make a big difference on many size TV's, if it were not in an HD format, I simply would not be able to watch it.
