    If they do put it on DVD, hopefully they don't crop it to 16:9 like the new HD masters!

    You know, all of a sudden my taped reruns of Cheers don't seem bad at all. I should put the suckers on DVD just in case.

    They have both OAR AND tilt n scanned masters (produced from the OAR). I'm surethat Paramount would put OAR on the DVD and reserve those chop n crop jobs for syndication 10 years from now

    I certainly hope so. Just when you think 16x9 TV will end the OAR wars, it looks like we'll have to fight for 4x3 product, as well.

    Imagine... Just as today's DVDs proudly proclaim their widescreen status, future editions of TV shows and older films will proudly proclaim "squarescreen!" on their packaging :p

    I really hope Cheers arrives on DVD in the near future. I'd like to work through those ten seasons and immediately on to Frasier. Please Paramount? Could you!?
