Seems a pretty strong reaction to slightly different shots. Really, saying this isn't the "original" footage, wanting to contact people involved in the show and this project to ask them questions about these very slightly different shots?
It doesn't seem unreasonable to me. To ask, "why are the shots different?". I mean, aren't you even slightly
curious as to why alternative takes have been used? I'm not fussed one way or another about the actual use of different takes, because as you rightly say the net effect on the final episode is negligible anyway. But I'd still be interested to know the story behind why they've been used over the previous ones.
Or are you saying that any
kind of interest in the way the show is put together should (for some reason) be outlawed?
