Okay, I appreciate you finding a picture that demonstrates what you mean, but I'm not sure it's indicative of the entire series. I've just gone through some screencaps for one episode, and already found several that don't have wasted space at the top and bottom. Eg.

How would you crop those without losing important parts of the picture? Or this one:

You could crop that without losing anything important, but you'd be left with a very cramped frame, shaved heads at the top and/or peeking heads at the bottom.
Tried this as an intellectual/artistic exercise. Mind you I only had the 4:3 image to work with not the full image source available to production.

Information *is* lost but could it work as an alternative presentation? I'm sure no one will be swayed but it was fun to do anyway.
