Best thing about the just-released iTunes 8? HD versions of TV shows. To help kick things off, Apple is offering one free HD episode from each of a dozen shows (some of which are actually worth watching!). I've rounded up the links for you; just make sure you have iTunes 8 installed.

I'm loving this. I've wanted to check out shows like Eureka, In Plain Sight, and Life, and now I can--in full HD glory. Grab these freebies while ye may and stock up your laptop, iPhone, Apple TV (if you're one of the five people who own one--hi-yo!), or whatever.
