ONLY season 3 is missing SOME (not all) cold openers. No other footage is cut.
but yes it is annoying.
I've never noticed any scenes or segments, apart from the cold openers, being cut from a syndicated episode of MITM, so the editors do a good job to make the viewer not aware of the cuts.
Hmm your right. Well that news to me. Bad news.
Question: Does: coldopener included = cut footage, ever?
Because for example episodes 2,3,12,15,16,19 all have cold openers.
Wow, you really do analyse that stuff extensively, Mike.
Here's a question: Theoretically more people watch an original episode on network primetime TV than syndication. So why do they need more commercial time for the syndicated version if fewer people watch it?
