You could bring up the point that people tend to like panoramas because it is relatively close to what they remember the scene as in a wide-sweep format. It acts almost like an artificial "Peripheral Vision" we see at about 170-180° angle. Landscapes on the other hand, is a very broad subject. Care to explain in detail...? If you are just talking about the structure layout, then most landscape shots are done in wide angle for the same basic purpose of giving the illusion of actually being there.

You might do an essay on natural light by creating the same pictures early in the day (or just before dusk) and compare those pictures to the same ones shot in the middle of the day.

Your CRT (tube) TV is a 4:3 aspect ratio and 720x480 resolution. This is also what SD (standard definition) television is. So when watching SD television on an SDTV, its a perfect match. No distortion, no problems at all, just a nice clean picture. Your HDTV however is a 16:9 aspect ratio and either 1280x720 (720p) or 1920x1080 (1080p) native resolution. So when watching SD content on that, you're going to run into a discrepency. You can have pillarbox images. That is the scenario you describe, where the left and right sides have black boxes. This maintains the aspect ratio (so people look like they are supposed to look). But it annoys a lot of people. You can stretch images. Most TVs have an option to adjust the aspect ratio (format) of the TV. The stretch will "fatten" (stretch horizontally) the image to fill the screen (people will get a bit fatter). This is one of the most commonly used settings, HDTV owners just get used to it. You can zoom images. Many TVs also have an option to adjust the zoom (again format) of the TV. Its usually one of the options under the same option that impacts stretch. This will zoom in on the image until there is no more black. It does a zoom directly on the center of the image. So all of the edges get cropped (you lose part of the image). This preserves the aspect ratio though (people are still the right proportions). This is lesser used though because of the crop that occurs. Also be aware, that even in HD, you might get black around images. Some HD channels just stuck their 4:3 show/image into a 16:9 frame, so they burn the pillarbox into the image. In that case, none of the format options will help you. Worse still is that some shows were letterbox in SD (black bars top and bottom) and then get this force pillarbox in HD along with the existing letterbox. So you literally get black on all sides. Its rare, but does exist. And not all movies are shot 16:9 (1.78). Well actually none are shot 16:9. Most are 1.85 (but that's close enough to 1.78, so it fills the frame out). But some are 2.35 ratio (purely an artistic decision by a director). This means, even in HD, some movies might be letterbox (black bars top and bottom). This was an artistic decision, and its supposed to look like that when viewed properly, there's nothing you can do. You can zoom that image, but you'll crop A LOT of the edges off (so much so that you might cut people right out of scenes).

If the show your watching wasn't filmed for widescreen, when you switch the picture size, this will stretch the picture out. The black bars are there to keep the integrity of the picture as it was meant to be seen. On a standard screen.
