As a Bawlmer person now living in NYC, I almost threw something at the T.V. when on the first episode of the new season, of their most critcally aclaimed show this season, The WIRE was not in 16:9.
Oh, it *is* in HD, I can tell from the clarity, but unbelievably it is not in 16:9. So I get those damn sidebars - instead of it filling the whole screen. I mean a small station like TNT can do "The Closer" in HD, 16:9 so it fills the whole screen and HBO can't do THe Wire?
ooohhh bad bad choice. And it's not like this show is questionable, it's in its 4th season and is their one show getting all the rave reviews. Please god don't tell me Lucky Louie is in HD/16:9.
