Roger Ebert hates 3D and I've often seen him link, refer to, and publicize articles and stats that basically point out the scientific irrelevancy of 3D technology to the way the human eye works, or the PITA issues with how much darker the 3D filmic experience is, in terms of the illumination of the images on the screen.
I'd agree that there's all but no reason for it in its current state, but money - though I've heard more than once what Faith says, too, that animation *can* use the tech to its best advantage.
I fired up "Upstairs Downstairs" on streaming this past week, recorded an excellent "Frontline" on The Vaccine Wars, and today hit up "Star Trek: Insurrection" with the DVR too. I'd bet there are people who find that list a bit scattershot, but for me this is par for the course. Heh.

The pre-modern world was willing to attribute charisma to women well before it was willing to attribute sustained rationality to them.
