You just can’t underestimate the power of the ticked off fan.
Producer/writer Joseph Mallozzi, who happily prepared for his role as the villain in this piece, turned it into a party by handing out umbrellas (to go with the Scottish-type weather) and baseball hats and setting up protection for the bagpipe band.
ETA: Apparently it was SCB who put together the shelter for the bagpipe band. (Check out the comments section to see who else is reading this site.)
They must have inspired something because Joseph Mallozzi laid down the gauntlet that he’d write the character back in for two episodes in Season 4 if the group manages to get coverage on a national US entertainment news show.
Anyone with any pull on these shows, please get with the organisers!
