3D Or Not 3D 2

Bought the second season of "3rd Rock From The Sun" on DVD today, and decided to watch the two so-called "3D" episodes after the special features, which I always watch first on a DVD. I was sitting in my recliner, off center from the television, the 3D segments of the episode didn't really look any different than without wearing the glasses provided, except a little darker. I moved to the sofa, directly in front of the television, no difference. I turned off the light, no difference. Is it just me, or does 3D on television not work? I remember in the late 1970's, a local station aired some gorilla movie that was supposed to be 3D, even had a place to pick up special glasses, which I did. That movie didn't look 3D either.
I went to the theaters and saw "Comin' At Ya", "Friday the 13th 3-D", and "Jaws 3D", and those actually made you think things were jumping out at you, but so far both my 3D television experiences so far have been disappointing. Is it just me, or have I been watching on crappy televisions?

First TV,Late 1970's: A color Sears brand TV, about three years old at the time, over the air signal.
This TV, Mid 1998: A Sony Trinitron 27", with DVD player connected by S-Video cable.
