I may be getting senile, but it seems to me that there are a lot of scenes chopped from the syndi-cut versions that I didn't remember. Like a whole conversation in "Promised Land" where Sam seriously considered just continuing up the road to his family's farm. In the cable version, there's a line in the end where he says, "I should have just kept going." And it wasn't until I watched it on DVD that the line even made sense. Like, before it was just a throwaway, and now it has context.

Of course, it could just be that I'm stupid. In "Revenge of the Evil Leaper" - which I've watched a jillion times on tape over the years, I never got that the assumption was that the warden was going to rape Liz, as he had the murder victim. The guard says to Sam, "You didn't tell me that you were 'going under,'" and I thought, whoa, that sounds dirty. And then the nickel dropped and I realized what it meant.
