I can only imagine what Kemper has been saying to provoke the fury of fans predictably protective of their characters, their relationships and their universe. I'd guess something along the lines of, "We're going to throw you into the deep end of the pool from the start without a buoy, we're not going to give you any of what you want, and you're going to damn well like it, even if John screws what's-her-name and Commandant Cleavage by episode two. It'll be like nothing you've seen before, you won't know what's happening, but it's going to rock, So Be Grateful." How do I love that man's ego -- let me count the ways.
I have this idea about time-travel and Earth - Anyway.
All this to say that I am going to be bad, again, and get my hands on the uncut episodes. Online, probably. Tapes would be good, but I don't know how practical that is. Both would be ideal.
