Laptop to TV?

So we managed to deal with part of our missing episodes of 24 via reruns, and are about ready to finish the season. But I think we're going to need to see one episode via iTunes, and that leads me to a question: is there any straightforward way to get from iTunes to our TV set? This seems to be largely a hardware problem, so I put it out to the unimind to see if there are any clever answers.

I assume that it's not straightforward -- after all, the video has to be adapted from high-res digital format to relatively low-res analog NTSC. (No, we don't have a digital HDTV set yet, which I assume would make this easier.) But I don't know if we're talking about a cheap $20 device or a $200 one. Or, alternatively, is there any way to get a video downloaded to iTunes burned onto a DVD? The docs that I find indicate not, but there could be workarounds.

It's not a crisis -- worse comes to worst, we'll watch it on msmemory's decently big laptop screen. But I'd rather see it on the 32" screen than the 15" one, if there's a straightforward way to do so...
