Commentary: A rare choice in syndicated TV programming

  • I liked the fact that WJTC-TV had a theatrical movie that was made before the 1980s in their syndicated TV programming plans this past Friday, November 21st (it was broadcast between 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.), since they and other local TV stations rarely had such movies in their syndicated TV programming over the past ten years. I especially liked the fact it was a movie that I liked and felt would be of interest to many other folks due to its main character being very popular at one point in time. It was called "A Shot in the Dark" and its main character was Inspector Jacques Clouseau. Even though I was happy to know that WJTC-TV had this movie in their programming, I still wished they had a better copy of it since its aspect ratio (or picture format) was not the same as the one for its original version (1.85 : 1 rather than 2.35 : 1). If its aspect ratio were the same as the one for the original version, its pictures would have appeared much wider on TV sets receiving the high-definition version of WJTC-TV's programming.
