    I'll be the first to speak up. YAY! I'm going to buy this set when it streets, as I will every season. Now, if they do decide to release this overseas in widescreen, I may pick it up too. I remember watching this show in fullscreen...so I'm glad that it's being presented that way. Sure, I own a 16x9 TV, but it being presented in 4x3 isn't going to stop me from buying it.

    Well, this is interesting. Columbia/Tristar has just announced Season 1 for a June release in Germany. No details have been given yet (i.e. screen format), but it is mentioned to be a 4-Disc-Set (the R1 is 3 discs), which certainly might do wonders for the picture quality, compression-wise. I wonde what they'll charge though. C/T discs are among the most expensive in Germany (worse than Paramount).
