In the LED of the Beholder

I used to think this show Dogs With Their Heads Out Of Windows was pretty lame. Then I saw it on the Vizio Razer LED.

“Have we really sunk this low?” I wondered. “Just half an hour of dogs hanging out of car windows, letting their jowls flap in the breeze?” I was just wrapping up a scathing 28,000-word critique for The Paris Review of Reality Television when my set died and I had to get a new one. The Vizio 26” Razor LED seemed just as good as any.

Oh, how wrong I was. About both the Vizio Razor – actually a ridiculously good 1” thin HDTV for the price – and about DWTHOOW, as we fans call it. And yes, I am a fan. Until you’ve seen the furry folds around a shar pei’s eyes stretched back in the wind in 20,000:1 contrast and 1080p resolution, you haven’t seen the furry folds around a shar pei’s eyes stretched back in the wind.

Tragically, however, the Vizio’s clarity and detail do not work the same magic with other reality TV shows. It’s a powerful TV, but not even its considerable powers can make Duck Dynasty or Extreme Couponing watchable.
