I don't believe I've ever seen an episode description that wouldn't fit in 
the standard box, so I can't comment.

You still have that option.  I guess I don't see the difference between a 
description that is cutoff that you can't fully read or that's scrolling 
that you apparently can't fully read.  Either way, you can't fully read it 
and have to go to the info screen.
