Yeah, I do recall them doing that now. I was thinking they were only showing the last few episodes from the previous season to get you caught up. I can only assume that they had to pre-empt the show in their time slot for local sporting events and such and just didn't have enough weeks available to do a full rerun of the previous season. They did 22 episodes in each of the five seasons they were on the air so they would need 44 weeks to run the series twice. Lots of shows get pre-empted during the Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays plus unscheduled news reports and such that screw up the schedule.No, they would run all of a season EXCEPT the last five or so episodes, then hold those back until the new season was about to begin.
