It's a bit nitpicky for the official list, but S3 E8 (the series Finale) of Dark alternates between 2.0:1 and 2.4:1 and is therefore not CIH safe. I think it's the only such episode out of the 26.
Since the normal OAR for that show is 2.0:1, and no scenes exceed that typical height, I would argue that the episode is still CIH safe even though some scenes are letterboxed more for effect. I think of "not CIH safe" as meaning that some image is either cut off or projected onto your wall (like the flashback scenes in season 2 of Black Monday, which are taller than the show's typical height). I will add a notation to the spreadsheet, though.It's a bit nitpicky for the official list, but S3 E8 (the series Finale) of Dark alternates between 2.0:1 and 2.4:1 and is therefore not CIH safe.

Thank you for this. Your post led to significant clean-up of the spreadsheet.TV series being wider than 16:9 is actually something that's older than you might expect since Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex is in 1.85:1 way back in 2002, before the popularity of Netflix and smartphones with wider screens. It aired on Nippon TV in Japan but it was initially released straight-to-video by Manga Entertainment in America until many years later when it aired on Adult Swim and then put on streaming in Starz.
SAC_2045 is 16:9, though, despite being almost 20 years after the original series and being made for Netflix, which popularised wider TV series.
Netflix's Tidying Up with Marie Kondo is in 1.90:1.
Adult Swim and Genndy Tartakovsky's Primal is in 2.35:1.
All seasons of The Clone Wars are in 2.35:1 but they aired in pan-and-scan 16:9 for their original Cartoon Network airings (for seasons 1 - 5) but were presented in 2.35:1 in digital, Netflix, Disney+ and Blu-ray. Season 6 was also 2.35:1 in Netflix (where it was released originally) and Blu-ray.
Samurai Jack is also VAR between 4:3, 16:9 and 2.35:1 and many more aspect ratios (framed for 4:3 in Seasons 1 - 4, and 16:9 in Season 5), with one episode (S02E12: XXV - Jack and the Spartans) being almost entirely in an aspect ratio wider than 2.35:1.
Yeah, they told me ZIP files are not allowed anymore for "security reasons," whatever that's supposed to mean. I asked what other alternatives I could try and got no further response.Have you complained about this on the Community Feedback: We Are Live! thread?
Zip files are very universal for file uploading on forums.
In theory nasties can be embedded within the zip archive. I'm guessing that they would just rather ban ZIP files instead of running them thru a nasty detector before posting. The only other archive that is popular is RAR. No idea if it is banned as well. If I need to post something in a ZIP archive, I just zip it under linux and make it available on my own server.Yeah, they told me ZIP files are not allowed anymore for "security reasons," whatever that's supposed to mean.

Interestingly, Love Fraud premiered today and is indeed a super-wide 2.56:1.The trailer for Showtime's upcoming Love Fraud is an extremely wide 2.56:1, which seems absurd for a docuseries. I would not be surprised if the trailer is overmatted for effect and the actual show has a more common ratio like 16:9 or 2.0:1.
Thanks. I think I'll wait until closer to release when we have full trailers before I add them to the list, but I'll be on the lookout for them.Disney+'s MCU shows were 2:1 when they were previewed in Superbowl.
The only exceptions are What If...? which still doesn't have an official trailer or even teaser and Loki, which is in 2.35:1.
