I understand that the X-Files was filmed in widescreen from Season 5 on, however, when I began watching the first disc I noticed a few segments which confused me. For example, the opening credits are presented in widescreen and as far as I can tell are the same credits from prior seasons, so to present them in widescreen they must have either matted or stretched the image. Secondly, there are a few flashback sequences to prior episodes (from earlier seasons) which to my understanding were not shot in widescreen, so again to present these segments in widescreen they must have either matted or stretched the image. I would appreciate it if someone with a little more knowledge on the subject could explain how these segments are infact widescreen and not altered from their original presentation, or am I correct in assuming that the above segments are altered?
