Some shows shoot the show in the order that's aired on TV. Other shows shoot the show in an order that's screwed around with by the networks. This is a thread about that. On The Wild Wild West, during it's fourth season, actor Ross Martin suffered a heart attack. The show featured two main players, Robert Conrad as Jim West and Ross Martin as Artemus Gordon. There were nine episodes shot without Ross Martin. West had a revolving door of sidekicks throughout that tenure. Finally, in the 102nd episode, Martin returned. He came back, but for only three episodes. The series was canceled at the end of the season. When the network aired the final season, they took the nine Artie-less episodes and sprinkled them throughout the year. Making it seem like he was gone once in a while, rather than in one long block. The same the happened on Bewitched. In it's fifth season, the last eight episodes, Dick York was absent. During the filming of an episode, he had a seizure and quit the series. The following season would be the debut of the second Darrin, Dick Sargent. So ABC aired the Darrin-less episodes mixed in with the others. Making it seem like he was absent occassionally, rather than in one block. Pretty much the same thing happened on Saved by the Bell. During the senior year, they shot all the episodes with Kelly and Jessie. That included the final episode - the graduation. After that, they shot all those Tori episodes. But when T-NBC aired the show, they mixed in all the Tori's with the Kelly/Jessie's. This was weird, because Kelly and Jessie never acknowledged Tori and Tori never acknowledged Kelly and Jessie. It's almost as if they existed in different universes. Then there's FOX which aired episodes of Sliders out of order. At the end of one episode the gang find themselves about be covered in water. However, the episode before it (in FOX's aired order) began with the gang already climbing a building to keep from drowning. FOX screwed the order. What are some examples you can think of?
