Just a note as I watch the Emmys tonight, in HD. An impressive number of the commercials on the Fox broadcast are High-definition, which is great, and about time. Of the ones that aren’t, at least half are letterboxed anyway. So if you’re watching on a regular 4:3 screen, you see it letterboxed. And if you’re watching an HD channel on a 16:9 TV, you see it letterboxed on ALL FOUR SIDES. That is DUMB. DUMB DUMB DUMB. What POSSIBLE purpose does it serve to produce a commercial not in HD, but letterbox it anyway? Oh, I know, so it sorta looks like a movie, right? WRONG, DUMMY.
