Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I can't understand wanting to fill a 16x9 TV screen completely at the expense of cropping 25% of the image, or, to a lesser extent, stretching and distorting the image.

15 years ago, the argument was "stop doing pan-and-scan to fill the 4x3 screen, studios need to show movies in their original aspect ratio." Now it's "stop showing things in their original aspect ratio, studios need to fill the 16x9 screen."
