    Potentially good news for release of remaining seasons in widescreen on both R1 and R2
    Over here in UK, they released Deadalive (2 parter from Season 8) on DVD, but it was full screen. A lot of fans complained, and I don't think it sold that well.
    They are now releasing the 2 part finale to Season 8 in November, and have just announced that it will be in anamorphic widescreen.
    I know this is an R2 release, but it looks like Fox are listening, and I am optimistic that the remaining seasons after 4, in R1, will be in widescreen (though I am not sure if season 5 was shot in widescreen, but I know 6 onwards is).

    Good news! FOX already stated that they'll be putting out The X-Files in anamorphic widescreen when they hit season 6, the season that is believed to have been the first to be shot widescreen!

    It has already been stated that the X-Files DVDs will go to widescreen here in R1 when they get to the season where the show started filming in that ratio...Season 5, if I recall correctly. I wonder why the ever gypped you guys in R2? It happens all the time, tho'. [​IMG]
