    I have to take issue with your description of the episodes being uncut. Episode 5 of season one has a scene that was cut probably due to music rights (Goldblume and some uniforms are in the men’s singing Mr. Sandman when Frank walks in on them. This scene with the men singing is cut, and there is a jump cut during Frank’s dialogue as he refers to Henry as Mr.Sandman. Later in the episode, Leo is singing the song as he books a suspect, don’t know why that one escaped the dreaded cutters).
