This direct-to-DVD movie was the 2nd of 4 to be released after the tv series was cancelled at the end of season 5. When the series was to be revived on a different network, this movie was split into 4 parts, each part equal to the usual length of a tv episode, and shown first as season 6 episodes 5 through 8.
