    Digital Bits reports today that Warner will release Smallville season 1 on 3/18.
    Which is awesome news.
    But what I'm wondering is that, like the recent Canada release, with the first two episodes, weren't they released in 16x9??
    I highly doubt that Warner will be releasing these in 16x9 for region 1, but there's always hope.
    Jason Whyte,
    if your reading this...
    Your off the hook on buying me the Canada release, since I want season sets[​IMG]

    No oar, no sale. Smallville is clearly supposed to be seen 16:9, and I hope they'll deliver that. I'll purchase it if so.

    Since Smallville is broadcast in 1.78:1 Letterbox on The WB, I think we can safely assume anamorphic DVDs.

    Just FYI, while this comes from reliable sources, this is in no way to be considered an official announcement. Have to wait for Warner Bros for that. ;-)

    This may be kinda redundant, but chalk me up as another "no OAR, no sale."

    Good to see so much great TV material hitting DVD so soon.

    This is great news indeed (if true)!!

    I know Smallville is currently broadcast in HDTV as 16:9, but Season 1 wasn't. I am very pleased with the Canadian disk's presentation.

    I WILL buy Season 1 regardless. This show is absolutely wonderful. That said, Season 2 and beyond should DEFINITELY be anamorphic. This show deserves to be treated with class.

    According to the a Smallville fan site www.kryptonsite.com the rumor is bogus. The story is on the site.

    I was under the impression that Smallville was rather cramped. I've always thought it looked this way at least.

    Some shows look significantly better in 4:3 however.
