The show has a variety of saga sells (opening narrations) and opening credits. In terms of opening credits and saga sells, there are:
1. the pilot opening (no saga sell; just a sequence shown of flying through clouds)
2. the season one opening (Sam discusses the events of the previous episode)
3. the season two through four opening (the saga opening credits as used in syndicated airings of the show)
4. the season five opening (the same opening credits as seasons two through four, but with a new rendition of the theme song)
5. the final episode opening (the opening credits from season five, but with the original rendition of the theme song)
I loved this show! It was amazing. I was almost crying when it ended. "THEY CAN'T LEAVE IT THERE!", I shouted. It is kind of sentimental and honest at the same time. Everything from the theme music to the inventiveness and unpredictabilty of it all makes it a truly classic show. I hope they make a movie of it some day. If they do it'll be a box office smash.
