All of the episodes are presented in their original 1.33:1 television aspect ratios.
It’s particularly interesting to see the Spielberg of the 1980s shoot within the very confining television frame (with cinematography in both of his episodes by “E.T.’s” Allen Daviau), yet still retain his trademark visual style.
