Working under time and budget constraints meant that, inevitably, Smith wished he could go back in time to get a second chance at creating certain props. “[My] first episode we had to make the shape-shifter device, the thing that you put into your mouth and it transforms one person into another person. I was brand new here and I wasn’t happy with the way that turned out, and it came back in about 5 or 6 episodes. Every time it came back I was like, ‘Oh, I wish I could have that time over again to redo this one,'” Smith said. “A lot of the time, I [didn’t] actually see [the prop] on set, so I watched the episode to see how everything comes together.”
