Will Borders be able to rack up better sales numbers when leaving behind DVD and focusing more on Blu-ray? Can Barnes & Noble keep its lead over Borders? Will Claudia tell Lance she’s pregnant by her half-brother? Tune in tomorrow for the answers on All My Illegitimate Children.

The only problem I have with Blu-ray is that the movies aren’t formatted to fit a 16x9 widescreen tv. The 16x9 widescreen translates to roughly 1.8 to 1, while the Blu-ray movies all seem to be roughtly 2.4 to 1. Since the 16x9 TVs were out first, why couldn’t they make the Blu-ray movies to fit them? It’s annoying as hell that we all went out and bought these TVs to watch wide-screen movies, then they come out with a new format movie that doesn’t fit the TVs.
