Amazing show, horrible encode job
Encoded at 4x3 letterbox? Are you serious? This means that anyone with a widescreen TV or monitor is forced to watch this program with black bars on the top, bottom, left and right sides. Ridiculous.
Secrets of Lost Empires II: Easter Island
Dumb, Dumb, Dumb... Oh, unless you really like reality shows where they spend a deadly dull amount of time debating is the angle 43 degrees? No it can't be. You're doing it wrong. The angle is no more than 30 degrees!... Yawn! Clearly NOVA producers wanted to skip the expense of hiring writers. Too Bad. Typically NOVA programs are reliably five stars all the way. If all NOVA programs were this shallow, I would never bother even checking to see if NOVA was on. Next time I'll read the review before ordering the show.
