But at least the original is still there 100% with nothing taken away or taken out of proportion. Really can't see what's so horrendous about that.
I'm not so sure I've seen anyone state that it would be "horrendous", nor do I believe too many think that. I simply like to have as many different versions of the content as possible. One of the things I love about my TOS Blu-ray's is the fact that I can choose between the new and original effects. I know the show was cropped to 16:9 for Japanese broadcast and I wish we would have also had that version available here in the States as well.
