(about his work on Jake and The Fatman)
J. Michael Straczynski: I often felt that I was a better writer than the shows I found myself working on. By that I mean...you can write the best Jake and the Fatman script in the whole world, but it's still Jake and the Fatman. It's like putting in ten years teaching a pig to sing; even if you achieve the goal, at the end of the day, what've you got for all your work? A singin' pig.
