TV in 3D? (video)

Many manufacturers are getting ready to release 3D HDTVs or converter boxes that will be able to turn whatever you normally watch on television into 3D images. While the average person will still probably have to wait a couple of years before this technology becomes affordable and/or perfected, two cable channels are already in the works that boast of all 3D content, all the time. ESPN’s 3D offshoot will be available this summer, while a 3D version of the Discovery channel won’t be available until next year. I know sports and nature documentaries would be a good fit, but some shows just wouldn’t be worth the hassle. House would be disgusting with the patients seizing, vomiting, and bleeding right in front of you. Who wants to see their local news anchor’s head floating in the living room? Then again, imagine the realism of 24’s explosions or how amazing an exorcism on Supernatural would look. What TV shows would you really want to see in 3D?
