Do you know what the artists original intent was?
Yes, the directors' intent was to frame each shot according to the proportions of a 4:3 television screen.

I started thinking of any 4:3 TV shows that were reformatted or changed for widescreen. The first one that hit me is the Friends bluray release. I don't have it, but read it's been changed to a widescreen format despite originally being full frame. A review says that required some cropping and such to edit out equipment and people not meant to be seen.

Based on the review, the result is occasional odd camera angles and framing issues.
