I would suggest that you can not care about this any more strongly than I do.

Can I ask you a question? What color is the sky in the world where you live?

I cannot send someone, nor can I, just barge into a major studio's technical
lab and demand to oversee this process. First off, I didn't know WHEN it was
being done, nobody told me, because they never tell ANYbody.

Second, again, if you think I or anyone can just go barging in there and
oversee this thing on my say-so...you're from Mars. It doesn't work that way.


It's got nothing to do with caring about a show or not caring about a show,
it's got everything to do with what you can and can't do when it comes to
marching into somebody's office in a multi-billion dollar corporation and
telling them their job when (at that point) there had not been any reason shown
to merit this. Saying "I'm here because you guys are just such fuckups that I
*know* you're going to mess this up" would serve only to have security
summoned.

I'm sorry, but neither I nor anyone else involved with Babylonian Prods. can be
held responsible for your erroneous view of how things should be done, which do
not touch reality at any two contiguous points.
