I don't think fan input had anything to do with it. The series was made for 4:3 aspect ratio, and they want to make as few changes as possible.
It's not just the difference between fan preferences; it's the difference between seeing all of the picture or not seeing all of the picture.
Exactly. The 4:3 ratio was the standard for tv for decades. No one in the 80s / 90s could have imagined blurays and hd tvs and prepped the show for it. I would rather have the 4:3 aspect and lose nothing over having a 16:9 widescreen and cropping the scenes. Remember, its a miracle that this project even got the green light to begin with!
This debate comes up a lot. Perhaps we should pin this up for future reference.
