Someone at work mentioned the free preview is 9/3-9/7. I couldn't find confirmation at hbo.com. I want to fill up my TIVO memory.

As long as you don't mind watching movies all cut to crap and "presented" in full screen mode.

I can't figure out why it's okay that most of the new network shows are in letterbox (in prep for HDTV) but the movie channels still show most of their movies in full-screen.

Eh…it is a chance to record lots of stuff I would not otherwise see. During the last free weekend, we TiVo’ed “Holes” & “The Notebook” & “One Hour Photo” and episodes of “Combat”and some other stuff that I was vaguely interested in.

Sure, “Holes” was infantile and “The Notebook” was painfully sappy and “One Hour Photo” was just creepy and “Combat” was predictable to a fault, but what do you expect for free?

The big score as far as free weekends are concerned was “Love & Concrete.” That has not been released in DVD, so it was fortunate that I had a wishlist for it when the free weekend came to town.

Not expecting too much, but figures there will be a gem or two.
