No joy for your HDTV!

Imagine that you work for the History Channel. Suppose that your job is to put together a DVD set for season four of one of your prestige shows; one that looks great on your HD network and really serves to highlight what an excellent network you have.

If you were this person doing this job would you:

A: Release this DVD set as anamorphic, so that when people watch it on their 47" screen the image takes up all the screen and looks spectacular.

B: Release this DVD as non-anamorphic so that either people have to see a stretched version where all the planets are ovals instead of spheres (which they aren't actually, but that's another issue), or they have to watch it both letterboxed and pillarboxed in order to see everything in the correct aspect ratio?

If you selected B, I think the folks at History might have a job opening for you.

"The Universe", the TV show, looks great when it airs on History HD and is really entertaining and informative. I love everything about the show, even if this current season focused a bit much on the "gloom and doom" aspects of space and not as much on space science. I have the first three seasons on DVD and love watching them.

But, well, they're non-anamorphic and that's just not acceptable. This will, as a result, be the last DVD set of this program that I buy until the folks at History wake up and give the show a proper DVD release.

5 stars for the show. 1 star for the DVD set.
