    So let me get this straight...J6P hates those dang black bars yet doesn't mind that TNN has this ugly black bar across the bottom of the screen during its recent showings of the Trek movies (and in all their pan-n-scam glory I might add). So not only are the sides chopped off, but a portion of the bottom is as well. Un-frickin'-believable. I guess they don't mind the bars because they have "stuff" in them, though. I can imagine this conversation...
    Billy Ray Jimbo Bob: Honey pie, which of dem dere Star Wars movies is we watchin'?
    Sally Mae Sue: Baby, it's written dere on da bottom of da screen. See?
    Bily Ray Jimbo Bob: Oh ok. Dis is da one wit da whales in it. Bring me another beer sweetie pie.
    God help us...

    Thanks for the laugh. I could certainly use it today, as could many others I'm sure.

    You are assuming Billy Rae Jimbo Bob and Sally Mae Suecan read and understand Roman numberals. [​IMG] Not that I am perpetuating a stero-type or anything.
