Fun listen, thanks for the link. I get the feeling that the lighting on the set wasn't the network's real complaint because I really don't see how that's a valid gripe.

If you didn't care what happened to me, and I didn't care for you, we would zig zag our way through the boredom and pain, occasionally glancing up through the rain wondering which of the buggers to blame and watching for pigs on the wing.
