W. Owen:
I have yet to see more than a minute or two of this entire episode.

The reason being, although BCAT/CATS has scheduled it to air quite a few times in the past several years they always have to run it after hours (due to content) and leave it in the clutches of their automation system. In the prologue to the show, right after XY (in trailer-trash redneck guise) yells the aforementioned line she aims a TV remote at the camera and it briefly goes to video white noise before (presumably) the episode titles come crashing in...only the CATS automation system invariably interprets that as a dead signal and switches over to SCOLA or Free Speech TV or something.

One of these days I'm gonna get a wild hair and just go over with a couple blank tapes and have 'em make me a copy so I can finally see the whole damn thing.

Edit 7/30/2006: and now I'm informed by B that several episodes in the CATS archive have been permanently heat-damaged, including this one...meaning that if no one else out there has a copy, it's gone forever. Fuck.

Edit 7/6/2012: Thanks to the tireless work of the redoubtable Mr. Lawmaster, I have seen it in its entirety at last.

Except, that's a pretty damn long and draggy entirety, I gotta say. The debut segment of Disturbed Monkey Love makes up for it a little, it definitely could've done without all but about 2 or 3 of those little interstitial bits of slicing up chicken though. Especially since another egregious overuse of an otherwise cool music cue renders those segments pretty damned annoying after a while...in this case, it's the famous “O Fortuna” opening.

Luckily we also have a few very entertaining minutes of footage in there from Heather and Lindsey (aka H and L) for some additional compensation, and it's a crying shame that those two never became regulars on the show after that.
