Oh man, I hadn't thought about that one. "Claustrophobic" is a good way to describe what I feel when I watch these. "Uncomfortable" would be another. But if this is snug, you should see what it looks like on the SD channel of providers like DirecTV -- in many (most?) areas, they are centercutting the station's DTV feed for that channel, so when "Seinfeld" is on, not only are you losing a lot of image because of the zooming, but both sides are being cut off! I was looking at that tonight -- that's really bad.
