For those tracking the sound drops (which also occurred in the first
season), I have been able to establish the following.

The giant's voice did *not* drop out as viewed on a Rochester, New
York cable system. The voice *did* drop in the Chicago area on *both*
cable and over-the-air broadcasts.

So, I am pretty certain it is not a Lynch trick. Perhaps it has
something to do with the network satellite feed to the midwest (and
maybe points west.)
