Yeah... I've seen the online one probably like 50 times and the scene in Dave's shop was definately longer. Which is great because I really love that guy.
I know a lot of the earlier complaints were about how pale the guys looked and the lighting/colouring... I didn't think it looked as bad on the tv... There was still a kinda "washed" feeling to it, like it wasn't as bright as last time, but I thought it looked much better than the internet releases...

Maybe the lighting just wasn't as warm as the other office - their faces didn't seem really clear.
I wonder if that was intentional though. That whole scenario was pretty surreal, and that fuzzy feeling I got in the new office scenes kinda complemented that surrealness... It felt like the lighting/feeling for scenes in their apartment and back at the consulate were pretty on par with last year...
I have to admit my heart leapt as soon as I heard the HBO fuzzy sound, the angelic "aahhhhhh" and the HBO logo come into focus. How many times I had seen it online became viry irrelevant.
I know!!! I was so happy!!
I clapped and giggled and sister was like "How
many times have you seen this already?" I said "Tichnically, this is the first time on tv." To which she reminded me, "But you watched it on demand twice last week." "But that doesn't count," I countered, "because this is the premiere."
About 5 minutes later, mom came out of her room and said, "Wasn't this one just on? I thought you said it was new." Sister mockingly repeated my previous argument. But the best part is that my mother, who last year rolled her eyes and complained about the stupidity of the show everytime I put it on, is now a closet fan.
Oh yeah, I'm good. lol! I'll have to take her to a show this time around...

I did notice that it was easier to see some of the scenes on my computer than it was on the tv set - some things seemed a bit too dark, and they weren't too dark on the computer.
Check your tv settings... You may need to adjust the brightness... I have a similar problem but can't fix it as the remote for the television has loooong been lost... It makes watching CSI (and other "dark" shows) difficult at times...
