Have you seen the remasters of Hogan's Heroes, Knight Rider, The Equalizer or Charlie's Angels in HDTV? They've all been cropped for 16:9. Only occasionally do you miss the top or the bottom; the mask is floating to get the most information possible.
But, see, that's not really the point.
Yes it is. All I am saying is if you watch one of these old shows in 16:9, it works. We're not talking about the director's intention or videophile purist demands. I am saying you can crop a 4:3 show down to 16:9 and it doesn't seem cropped for the vast majority of the scenes.

I have tried hard not to like these remasters on HDNet and, sorry, I can't. They, in general, look good to me. Not perfect but quite acceptable.
