Well no, I don't really belong to that camp, but I believe the OAR.
OAR is the aspect ratio how the film or tv show was originally shown on the movie theaters or tv (talking about the wide release). Despite what some people believe, you can't "change" the OAR 20 years later - not even Chris Carter can do that. 4:3 is and always will be the OAR of X-Files. The decision was made back then, it's not being made now.
If Chris Carter (or some other person with enough credibility) now says that 1.78:1 is/was his preferred aspect ratio, then fine, I can live with that. But even then the OAR is 4:3.
"OAR" and "director's/series creator's preferred aspect ratio" are sometimes two different things (we all remember e.g. Kubrick debates, Storaro's decision to frame certain films in 2.20:1 on home video, the history of the low budget film like The Evil Dead, etc). We can of course debate which one is "better" and all that, but I don't see any real debate when it comes to OAR of X-Files (seasons 1-4).
1.78:1 is fine if/when they re-run the remastered series in HD channels. I actually fully understand the decision. But Blu-ray is another matter. At least it should be another matter. We'll see.
I know it was probably a typo but Storaro wanted 2.00:1, i could have lived with 2.20:1, i agree with original aspect ratio all the way, i dislike the fact Titanic was opened up for it's 3D release as the effects sequences were done at 2.00:1 and you lose some image at the sides, with regards to The X Files we really need more info to come out but if they had a safe area for 16/9 and it's a big if at this stage, then i'll take it even though 4/3 is the original aspect ratio.
