    Deep down inside I know you're right, and I'm generally a big proponent of watching stuff in its intended aspect ratio. I can't deny, however, that there is something deeply satisfying about seeing a show that was previously only available in 4:3 suddenly filling up my entire 16:9 screen. I can't explain it. It's just a visceral reaction. I absolutely hated watching stuff in pan-and-scan back in the day. It's one of the main reasons I invested so heavily in laserdiscs. That being said, I can't deny that I prefer the widescreen version of shows like Friends and The Wire. They look great, and I don't feel like I am making a sacrifice the way I did with P&S. I was hoping something similar could be achieved with Buffy.

    I signed up to receive Pivot TV before it's demise a while back. One of the main reasons I got it was because they were airing Buffy in HD and 16:9 ratio. I recorded the entire series again before the channel folded, but I haven't found the time to watch any of it yet.
