    Been watching these episodes again for the first time since original airings, and I noticed that the "Pilot" and episode number 5 "The Heist" were directed by Alan Smithee.

    Now anyone that knows that name knows that it is an insiders term used when a direector wants his name taken off of a project. My question is who REALLY directed these episodes, and WHY did they want to have their names removed?

    Looking for someone that has the DVD's and listened to the commentaries or watched the Special Features. Thanks.
