  • placement in the series

    the production code numbers place this 1-hr ep as 116a&b in the 2nd half of the first season but it has a christmas theme and since the series premiered was delayed because of the writers/actors strike they may have already filmed most of the first season already by the time it finally did premiere.
  • Ok, whose idea was it to have a flashback so quick?

    Okay, so we\'re SEVEN (7) episodes into the series and there\'s a flashback episode already! And TWO parts at that!

    It was as if they they thought no one had watched the show and wanted to show everyone what had happened. I mean they actually went through each of the previous six episodes and showed about 7 minutes of footage from each!

    What a waste of tape!
