I sat down to watch the latest episode of the Simpsons.
During the opening title sequence, I thought to myself "I wonder when they're going to update this. It's been around for a hell of a long time and is really starting to look old and dusty".

Turns out, I'd already seen this episode, I just hadn't updated the media library to show the latest file.

When I started watching the real latest episode, I was pretty amazed to see the whole thing in wide screen HD. New title sequence and new look for the show itself.
Did my subconscious pick up something in the news about this, or am I some sort of precog?
Either way is neat.

It remains to be seen whether the new format will compensate for the writing that has slowly dropped away over the years, but it's a nice change for now.
