Adam--yes, I'm pretty sure. I have a Sony WEGA with the 16:9 squeeze, and when I turned on the squeeze, the picture was noticeably squished. I don't know if I got a defective one or if they're all this way. But my copy, at least, definitely seems to be non-anamorphic.
DVDTalk's review says it's anamorphic. They also said that the episodes are spread out over 2 discs. I'd be interested to know if anyone's compared the transfer quality on the R2 and R1 releases. I have the R2 DVD and that one squeezes all 7 episodes on the first disc.
My bad...it's anamorphic. Someone must've fooled with my dvd player's settings. I just changed it to output 16:9 and it looks fine. Sorry if I alarmed anyone. Mods, please close this thread if you wish.
