So without trawling this entire thread, would this mean a widescreen version? Please, please, please.
If they do it, it will most likely just be HD, not widescreen. There's no reason to screw up the picture.
If they screw this up with widescreen, my enthusiasm for this project goes from 110% to 0%. Widescreen does not magically make shows better, especially when it was not shot for that aspect ratio.
If people want to watch it in "widescreen" they can hit the crop button on their remote, instead of chopping off part of the picture permanently.
