begins immediately with the opening credits, then goes to the
program. (This is the only episode which does that.)
My understanding is that the episode aired that way on network and in
syndication. EVERY syndicated showing I've seen has aired that way.
Looking at the episode "teaser," for some reason it runs some 12
minutes or more, much longer than the average LIS teaser. It's
actually more like a teaser and Act 1 combined.
My belief is that somehow it was determined that the opening credits
came too late into that particular episode. After all, this was only
the second episode, and a new show's identification with the audience
may have been the deciding factor in where the opening credits were
placed. That's just a guess. :-)
I strongly doubt that Fox intentionally messed with the episode. The
idea of digitizing to DVD is to do straight conversions of the
original 35mm prints as the network aired them.
I understand the cliffhangers are intact, but do the LIS episodes
contain the mid-episode bumpers, "LIS will return after station
identification," "LIS has been brought to you by," etc.?
