3D TV? Someone tell Ralph Kramden the wait is over

My heart goes out to Danny Baldwin, friend, colleague, and recent purchaser of a 3D TV.

He posted the following on his Facebook wall earlier today: "Pretty sure 3D TV was a bad omen. First the clouding issue that has caused me to send the TV back, now the dog eats the $60 pair of glasses."

Jake LaMotta should pay a visit and eat your dog for breakfast. You hear me, Danny?

If only Ralph Kramden had lived long enough to see the day that NASA could actually send Alice to the moon. You see, Kramden, the Nostradamus of the Gotham Bus Company, was the first to introduce me to the concept of 3D TV.

Always quick on the uptake, young master Baldwin hammered home the generational divide by countering with, "But what does Cedric the Entertainer think of 3-D television?"

BANG! ZOOM!

Now that I've returned the thing, I think I'm pretty much over the concept. It doesn't suffer from the same brightness issues as the theater because you can crank the backlight up, but I can't imagine watching much in the format. Major downside is, now I have a 3-D Blu-Ray copy of "Men in Black 3" I can't watch. Or is that an upside?
