If a show or movie was shot in 4x3 then IMO then it should stay in that format, but my point is if the was shot in 16x9 and the original can be remastered for DVD in that format, a DVD that many have original been sold in 4x3 because that's what people wanted at the time. I don't mind if nothing else is going on in the side bits I just like having it there. We had a new show this year "Canal Road" which aired in HD at 16x9 but for some insane reason the DVD is in 4x3, this is a new show probably shot less than a year ago. I just wonder what say the show runners have in how there production is displayed. According to sources with Gilmore Girls it came down to the show runner, so even though other shows from Warner where being sold on DVD world wide in 16x9 they downgraded it to 4x3. Is it also the reason shows like Scrubs, 70s Show and The Simpsons stuck with 4x3? in the case of The Simpsons it was proven with the movie they had no problem making it in 1x2.25.
