Every few years we see a manufacturer tout a wide-aspect ratio TV. Philips has marketed a few, and the Vizio CinemaWide XVT3D0CM was the last we reviewed at CNET. These had screen in a 21x9, or 2.33:1 ratio (though many were 2560x1080 resolution, which is usually 2.37:1). Like 16x9 TVs, this matched exactly no movie aspect ratios. However, they were close, and also offered the ability to have a full 16x9 image and something else (like a Web page) on screen at the same time. Don't expect these to become mainstream.
Of course, production-wise the series continues to excel, even if some of the scenes are a little dark at times and at least visually, Carnival Row continues to impress. Hopefully this is only a blip, with the episodes to come switching things up and doubling down on the plot itself. 2b1af7f3a8
