Haven't We Been Through The "Widescreen Hell" Already With Universal Studios?

"Fake Widescreen" - Largely an infamous invention of Universal Studios, involves putting black bars at the top and the bottom of the screen...wrecking a perfectly good full frame picture and losing 28% of the full frame picture at the top and the bottom of the screen combined due to the black bars.

Universal Studios already did this to the theatrical cut of..."Battlestar Galactica 1978"....released on DVD in 1999. And two more subsequent DVD releases of this same film in the 2000s.

Now, Universal Studios wants to apply their infamous practice again to the perfectly good full frame pictures of...."Battlestar Galactica - 1978"...The Complete Series. Two upcoming Blu-Ray releases described in the link above state flat out that there will be "Widescreen Versions" of every episode of the "Battlestar 1978" television series.

Now, everyone knows that television series shot back then were all filmed in full screen for the three dominant broadcast networks at the time (ABC, CBS, NBC.) So, there were no "Widescreen Cameras" filming television series back then concurrently with full screen cameras. So, that can only mean that Universal Studios is going to insert its..."Infamous Black Bars"....over the perfectly good full frame pictures of the...."Battlestar 1978"....television series, annihilating 28% of the full frame picture image at the top and bottom combined.

What incentive is there for consumers in purchasing these two Blu-Ray sets described in the link above? If they already have the...."Battlestar 1978"....DVD set with the proper full frame images.

Universal Studios needs to begin seriously thinking about releasing the...."Battlestar 1978"....television series on Blu-Ray in a manner where they are....adding to....instead of....taking away from....this series. Such as...doing a...."Director's Cut"...of..."Saga of a Star World" (in full frame) with all of the lost footage never seen before. Lost footage accurately described in my previous posts.


 Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on

And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
