unless Warner actually created a HD widescreen version that was just for broadcast.
I don't think this 50 cent "The Gathering" widescreen dvd I have, looks anything like hd quality resolution.

Overall, the video quality of this "The Gathering" widescreen dvd looks fuzzier and worse than the video quality of the five tv seasons dvd sets of Babylon 5.
The TV sets were mastered from the HD broadcast tapes that were created for Sci-Fi in 1998. So if you ever see the series broadcast in HD you are seeing the exact same masters as on the DVD.

And don't listen to others who say that "The Gathering" wasn't shot in widescreen. It was shot in exactly the same way as the rest of the series, and there were never any anamorphic lenses used.
