  • Watching the show on DVD, I didn't miss a pick-up with the story-line but I missed some of the characters whose absence was not really explained.

    I know this was aired after a hiatus but since I'm watching it on DVD, I had no problem with the storylines themselves. What I had problem with, was the absence of characters. Danny is negotiating with the prop guys, it's fine. Shouldn't Jordan be with him? It was not mentioned as far as I remember. Given they are outside, Matt should be in charge of the show and "helping the cast to write their lines on their palms". It was absolutely illogical. Even with this, the "remaining" actors did a great job. It was good to see more of Timothy Busfield and Steven Weber also did an excellent job playing the drunk. (By the way, he told to Kim in an earlier episode that he and his wife are separated, how can she be n the backstage area?) I also liked the idea to show that the lead actors are suffering without having a good crew around them.
