What is the difference between ansehen and sich ansehen?
If sich is left out, does the meaning change?

Hallo sfpugh, 

Thank you for asking this question. 

There is a difference between those two: 
etwas ansehen - to look at something
sich etwas ansehen - to watch something

Sich etwas ansehen is the reflexive form of the verb ansehen. Many German verbs change their meaning with the reflexive form. Those verbs are also sometimes not reflexive in English. 

I hope that helps. 

Liebe Grüße,
