2.0 out of 5 stars Great show, horrible DVD, January 24, 2011
This review is from: Shaun the Sheep: Season 1 (DVD)
This is a great British series but when it was released in America the decided to crop all of the Widescreen episodes into 4:3 pan & scan. In the UK you can buy it in Widescreen, but here they refuse to release it in its proper format. It is also unavailable in Blu-Ray in either country for some reason. If you haven't seen it it is still worth getting, but it is a real shame that they had to ruin the presentation. Hopefully they will come out with it in Blu-Ray widescreen.

I know that this is a hilarious show that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. And even if it was for kids only, there is no reason to release an inferior version just for kids. My daughter is 4 and fully capable of enjoying a widescreen 1080p presentation over a cropped 480i VHS transfer.

For one, Shaun the Sheep series 1 was made in SD, meaning it would not benefit from Blu-ray over PAL DVDs... that said, Americans seem to get this chopping treatment to quite a lot of widescreen SD, and it's also downscaled from 576 to 480, so... you would gain quite a bit from widescreen Blu-rays over the current American DVDs. And if you really like Shaun... there are Blu-rays available. They're just very expensive, you will pay around $150 a series to get them from Japan. Though also, because America and Japan are in the same Blu-ray region, they should work in any US Blu-ray player, and have English audio.
