    Hi all,

    I was considering buying the NYPD Blue season 1 boxset but can only find it with 4:3 ratio. Does this just apply to the 1st series?

    Which means I'll have black bars either side of the picture? So I was wondering if anyone knows if there ever was or will be a widescreen version release. R2 only.

    Tardis,

    "NYPD Blue" was never, ever filmed in widescreen, so you will never find it released in anything other than 4:3. Even the latest Season (number 11) is still filmed in 4:3.

    Sorry.

    Cheer's Pooch,

    I'm gutted..... for such a great show. Why on earth are they still filming in 4:3 and not gone over to Widescreen, so to speak?

    Do you also avoid watching 2.35/1 films because of black bars?

    NYPD Blue has been in High Definition on ABC in US for at least 3 years now. Those seasons should be in widescreen.

    HI,

    CKNA - Thanks for the news. As the UK is still 3 seasons behind (we're only just about to start Season 9 here, next week on Channel 4), we have only been shown 4:3 versions of the show. However, if Seasons 9 onwards are in Hi-Def, then maybe Channel 4 will be showing the widescreen version after all, and when we eventually get to a Season 9 UK DVD release, that too, will be in widescreen.

    Anyway, thanks for the news!
