    Well, DUH.

    What I wonder is, since it tends to make stuff look bad and even Hollywood knows it, why is it not only included on TVs, but turned on by default? I've yet to see anything, even sports, that's improved by it. It all ends up looking like a cheap soap opera.

    I'd wager that it's on by default because it's attention grabbing and to the uninitiated and/or at first glance it's more realistic looking.

    Just about everyone I know doesn't want to see what the producers are making on their TV because they want the TV to be clear, crisp, clean, with vibrant colors and lifelike clarity. The add edge sharpening, which is literally distortion, and brighten the source image, and increase the color intensity, and use motion smoothing. If a movie comes on which was supposed to be dark, grainy, and somewhat blurry, users get angry and say the studio fucked up the release.

    This is the same for people who insist on EQ'ing their perfect speakers and headphones because they don't want to hear what the artists created if it lacks bass, punch, or brightness.

    I've learned to make the reproduction system as perfect as possible then accept the limitations of the content for what it is.
