(Crash Override @ Apr. 15 2012,12:17)QUOTEI thought that would annoy me too.It didn't occur to me until I watched the first credits and I wondered how we'd arrived at 16:9.The problem is that nobody wants to watch 4:3 on a 42" screen. It just looks wrong with two huge, black posts down either side. These panels are so huge and sharp that, once you go to 720/1080, going back really isn't an option from the detail point-of-view either.You do lose some height but they've also added at the sides according to the reviews.So the vertical loss is not as much as you would think and it really didn't bother me when I watched.Seems like this guy felt the same way:http://blackholereviews.blogspot.co.uk/ ... in.htmlAnd
I agree with him that we really should have UFO on bluray as well.Apparently, Space 1999 is still on the cards, despite all the FUD flying around.I wasn't actually aware that they'd come from a bluray. I figured they'd been recorded from BBC HD or something. I would have been less inclined to download it otherwise, although I have no Bluray drive and I can't be bothered with the clutter of the discs either.UFO was remastered in HD evidently sometime in 2006 - http://ufoseries.com/hdtv/index.html
It should have one.Season One of "Space: 1999" is on Blu-Ray; and in its original aspect ratio http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezzsTnZX5JgFrankly
, I don't care if Season Two was ever released in HD, because that Season was pure rubbish to me.
