27. Season 5 appears to be your attempt to push the so called "envelope". The initial season had this 'shock value' as it hadn't been done before, but over the past few years people became complacent with what they see, is season 5 your attempt to return to the old ways of shocking the hell out of people?

Matt: I completely disagree. From the Nambla Episode to The Brown Noise Episode, we've had PLENTY of shock value. I don't think that Season 5 is no more shocking then any other season, but I do think it's turned out great. I think if you really go look at second, third and fourth season you'll find plenty of "shock". But its all subjective. Personally, we would trade a good story for shock anytime.
