But the show runners quickly came to hate how nasty Angelica was, and had her punished frequently. Season 2 onwards started showing her HiddenDepths.

** Due to a manufacturing error on the Season 3 DVD, the contents of the fourth and fifth discs are exactly the same, meaning the episodes that should be on Disc 5 are lost entirely, and despite being pulled so Amazon could rectify the issue, the discs are apparently still the same. The episodes in question ''are'' available on digital services. Also, the original Season 2 DVD set only covered the first half of the season, and the Season 3 set skipped right over the missing episodes (which included Susie's debut). The Season 2 set was eventually reissued with the missing episodes.

In addition, for unknown reasons, the masters for three episodes couldn't be located in time for the Season 9 set, and it was instead issued as a "Best Of" collection without them. It was later reissued with them restored back in.
