Star Trek Original HD format?

Wanna grab the original ST blu ray set for my dad but he HATES any redone show that has " black bars" on the screen.

Anyone familiar with this Star Trek set?

I researched this set when buying from the Cyber Monday sale and it should be left-right bars on the Star Trek Blu-ray set with the episode in 4:3 format.

The original series was 4:3, and the blu retains the same aspect ratio - meaning it'll have black bars on the sides. So if your dad has an old school tube TV, then he should be fine. If he has a high def TV, then he'll hate the set.

If he has an old school tube TV, he'll likely have black bars on all four sides of the screen.

That's racist to hate the blacks on the sides. Tell yo' dad that.

Re: Star Trek Original HD format?

Unfortunately I got rid of my Beta tapes a few years ago. They looked pretty damn good on my "big screen" 25" TV. That damn Star Trek TOS. I went from the Beta, to VHS, to those 2 episode sets to BR season sets. The only thing I didn't invest in was the LD's
