KTEH (Channel 54, San Jose, CA) is re-running the series on Saturday
nights at 10 pm PST. We've just seen episode two. I noticed that
Diane calls Burnside "Neil" at one point -- NO other subordinate does
this. Willy calls him "boss," Alan called him "sir," Laura calls him
I think the PA's are in some strange way protected by their position.
Even though their tasks are not very prestigious, they know they will
never be sent on a dangerous mission, and they know they are essential
to Burnside's operation. Burnside snarls at them, but it's all surface;
he has to be able to work with them and he knows it.
