It's the latter. To do something differently isn't to say that it wasn't done
right before. It's not a good/bad issue. I wanted to do something that
nobody'd done before, in part BECAUSE nobody'd ever done it before...where's
the challenge otherwise?

I've actually heard from some other folks on other SF style shows that our
tendency to push things has make it a bit easier for them to get tougher
stories through. This is a Good Thing. The more quality SF series, the better
for everybody.
