He believed that production moved at too much of a breakneck pace, leaving too little time for creative development and safety standards. After quarreling with the producers and occasionally taking over script-writing, Leong wrote a letter to Warner Bros. Studios which outlined the hazards and oversights of the production. When his letter was ignored, he left the show.
