    The number of people here at HTF who secretly like p&s is about the same as

    -the number of Al-quaida members who secretly like the U.S.

    -the number of kkk members who secretly like Jesse Jackson

    -the number of aclu members who secretly like Ronald Reagan

    etc., etc.

    Sometimes, I try to empathize with out less HT-savvy friends. I tell myself that the widescreen vs. pan and scan debate is just a matter of personal taste, and that it's silly to expect everyone to agree with me.

    Then I happen to catch "Ghostbusters" on Comedy Central…

    Wow, I'm surprised no one has admitted they actually enjoy pan and scan.

    You would probably have an easier time finding 'N Sync fans from this message board than people who like pan and scan.

    I was actually watching Ghostbusters on HDHBO and switching to P&S HBO. Response from siblings was "Yeah, so."

    "Put it back to the HD one now." Slow and Steady.

    I really enjoy not seeing the entire movie. Actually, if I put in a LBX DVD, I will put poster board on the 2 sides of my screen so as to make sure I miss the stuff going on in the background.

    Pan and Scan was fine for me when I was younger...but then I discovered that movies actually were being panned (butchered) and edited for television...

    The only people who like P&S are people who feel they're getting ripped b/c the "picture doesn't fit the entire screen." Oh...if only they knew...

    N Sync has a few songs that qualify as musical guilty pleasures; I like The Partridge Family's songs in the same way.

    I sometimes enjoy watching pan and scan movies just to see how bad they look, but I doubt many people do that.

    I love pan and scan. I also love severe heartburn, Ewoks, and Tom Green.
