I can't think of a moment in the entire 5 year history of the show when it
*wasn't* there, in the back of my head. You *always* doubt yourself, you
*always* want to go over it one more time. When I look at ANY episode, all I
see are the flaws, the things that could have been done better. It'll be years
before I can look at it without that overlay.

And the only thing you can do is burn through it and hope for the best at the
end.
