HDTV Listings for February 25, 2006

Kevin C. Tofel

What we're watching: What can we say: we'd rather have good special effects in high-def over a decent plot. That means it's "Armageddon" for us on TNT-HD in 1080i at 8 p.m.; here's hoping it really is 1080i and not some super-stretch version. The 1998 movie had a semi-predictable plot, but Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck and the rest of the oil rig characters make up for it, plus it never hurts to have Liv Tyler in a flick. With the Olympics almost over, you may want to pass on the soft sci-fi and get your fill of the Winter Games in 1080i on NBC starting at the same time.

Our traditional high-def listings continue below.
