Brilliant Primer or condensing 2 years into an hour
9 July 2001 | by TomRMDSee all my reviews

My wife and I saw this previous to the intro of the 3rd season debut. Thanks to this primer, we were able to jump into the series without any confusion. There was another airing of this primer in Summer of 2001, but I am unsure if it was updated since the *last* viewing of 'Undressed'

"Undressed' should be a boilerplate for other long-running arc-driven series who want to capture new viewers.
