Nowadays, we’re used to watching films and TV shows in our beds on laptops and tablets. While there’s certainly a time and a place for this (when you simply cannot muster the energy to get up), the low-quality, poorly calibrated screen and tinny speakers just do not do certain films and shows justice.
Remember the incredibly dark episode in the last season of Game of Thrones? The cinematographer responded to complaints about it being too gloomy by lamenting that too many had watched it on iPads and poorly tuned TVs. And while it really was rather dark, higher quality gear would have vastly improved viewers’ experience.
