Better late than never this week as Matt and I are plagued with technical difficulties. I have been too busy moving and didn't have Internet access and Matt has been plagued with storms and a faulty headset. We persisted and got it out a few days late, but we will be back on schedule next week . Matt tells us about the poor PQ on the all the HD sports this weekend and we continue to discuss the Blu-ray release. I haven't been able to get my hands on one yet, but hopefully that will change next week. I also share all my drug experiences with you this week, but I leave out the good parts.HDBeat Image
