    I think you're kneejerking here. What the guy is saying is that not every show should be widescreen for the sake of being widescreen. While I heartily disagree on Band of Brothers, given the clips I've seen, I would have to say that Angel and ER have greatly benefitted from being shot 16:9 only. Enterprise, never having been 4:3, is very appealing in this ratio.
    Bottom line what's he's saying: Don't go widescreen on all broadcasts because it's the "in" thing to do, do it because it'll make the show better.
