    I'm not sure where this topic would go but I assume it would go here. Sorry if its not the appropriate place.
    What does everyone think about the TV show The West wing broadcasting in letterboxed format? any fans of the show can probably hope for anamorphic versions of the series on DVD and I assume folks with those nifty widescreen sets can immediately enjoy the series a bit more.
    Bravo to NBC and the creators of The West Wing.

    I believe that seasons 1&2 were 4:3. The West Wing (one of the best shows on TV IMHO) only started filming in 16x9 from the "terrorist special".
    I would dearly love to see it appear in R1 land soon, but it'll probably be caught up in syndication for a couple of years yet. [​IMG]

    The West Wing hs been in 16:9 from the start of Season Three on.

    All seasons of Babylon 5 has been running in 16:9 mode for a while now on Sci Fi.

    ER has been running for two seasons in 16:9.

    Enterprise has been 16:9 since its debut

    This is just the start, more and more will continue to do this I assume.
