I hate having to repeat myself

I know we've had this conversation before, but I would like to request, beg, plead, persuade, demand, buy flowers and chocolate for, whatever it takes. I'm this close to getting down on my hands and knees and taking up religion. I'm bringing this up again because it's serious and I want to continue our relationship.

Please, Food Network. Please stop stretching the non-HD content on Food Network HD. Bobby Flay and Ted Allen are not really fat. Panning across a kitchen should not make me want to vomit from motion sickness. It really takes away from the viewing experience. How can you focus on the food when everything is stretched and warped beyond proportion? I don't like watching your channel when it's a non-HD show, and that means most of them because very few of your productions are. If I (and others) don't want to watch your channel, I'd bet your advertisers will eventually catch on.

Maybe I am in the minority. I wish I could start a Facebook group or whatever the kids these days do. Twelve people might even agree with me. Bravo gets it right, and their cooking shows are getting better and better. Cooking Academy is delightful. If you're not watching it, you really should, even though I think there's only 1 episode left. Maybe catch a marathon.
