Unfortunately they're using the Highlander transfers that are cropped for widescreen. They're not the only ones though. Most free services, Tubi, Peacock etc are using the same ones. I think Prime might have the correct aspect ratio. For most the opening is right but it switches to a cropped version when the episode plays.
