HDTV Listings for February 24, 2006

Kevin C. Tofel

What we're watching: Gee, Fox is starting the "24" repeats already. Unfortunately, they're no good to anyone unless you've seen the previous six or seven episodes this season, so we'll skip 'em. Instead, we'll settle down for an high-def double-header with the family. Hit HBO-HD at 6:45 p.m. with the kidlets for "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed" in 1080i. Hey, they watch your shows, so you can deal with a little Scooby-Doo, right?

Immediately following that, rush the kids up to bed and stick with HBO-HD for "Independence Day" at 9 p.m. Sure, we've all seen it before, but when the White House is utterly demolished in 1080i, doesn't it look like you can count the individual pieces of rubble? There's 173,289 of 'em, so don't bother. Now you know what we do in our off time.

Our traditional high-def listings continue below.
