Trivia

Besides the cast change from Officer Eve Whitfield to Officer Fran Belding, this episode marks two other significant changes. The opening teaser is eliminated in favor of a preview consisting of short scenes from the show, and a re-orchestrated, much faster version of the theme song plays over credits that pop in rather than fading in and out.
