| Most likely, the show (like many others produced in recent years) was composed for bothratios, so all the "important" picture information is most likely in the 4:3 frame. |
Like I stated previously... the HD versions appeared to be framed rather nicely (as opposed to Wonderfalls or Seasons 4-7 of Buffy in widescreen, which have a lot of dead space)
It's impossible to "frame" for two aspect ratios. You can protect for 16:9 and have all the important information in the center... but that's not good composition, which is why Wonderfalls looks so screwy in 16:9.
I think having accurate information from Marc Cherry is the most important key here.
