    Can anyone tell me if the Region 1 or Region 2 DVD of The OC Season 1 are in widescreen? I've seen the box for the Region 2, and the details for Region 1 and they both state it's 1:33:1 which is ridiculous as the show was broadcast in 1:78:1, so i was hoping that at least one of the boxes had the incorrect aspect ratio written on it, as there's no chance i'm buying it cropped!

    Marc,

    I hate to say this, but Season 1 of "The OC" was never aired in the UK in Widescreen. Only Season 2 was.

    In fact, Warners never actually filmed Season 1 in widescreen. So, in fact, the UK DVD release is in the correct and original aspect ratio of 1.33:1 or fullscreen 4:3 whichever you prefer to call it as.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. :(

    i got the £1 link and £1 voucher from that site, both worked..

    i'd post them but that seems to be the kiss of death lately, i'll just say that the 2nd £1 link down works and the pepsi voucher works.

    Hi,

    Well, I'm happy to be proven wrong on this one... :cool: It seems that the show was shot in widescreen, but aired in the UK in 4:3 only on Channel 4/E4, whereas some parts of Europe and the US got it in Widescreen!

    Oh well, we live and learn.... ;)

    Nice choice of picture! :thumbsup: Summer is very tasty!

    Great show too, if you haven't bought it get it. The Dawson comparison are actually a bit of an insult.
