    It appears all the DVDs are 1.78:1 but there is no way that's how we originally watched them on TV. I wonder if it was open matte or Pan & Scan.

    Would've been great to get some extras on this. I'd love a huge-ass documentary.

    It was open matte, the shot compositions were intended for 1.78 and 1.66 for foreign theatrical releases, which didn’t end up happening, if I recall. The director shot the series as though he was making a theatrical film, which was one of the reasons the miniseries was such a sensation when it aired originally.

    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    I had such a huge-ass crush on Jane Badler. I think every kid my age did.
