1974-75 Episodes that didn't rerun during the 90s
« on: December 07, 2017, 11:47:16 AM »
Tim: Now that you've watched every episode, can you think of any reasons why 1326-1350, 1396-1400, 1411-1420, and 1441-1445 never aired at all during the 90s even though other weeks aired 3 or even 4 (in the case of 1386-1390) times during the 90s?

Obviously 1326-1330 didn't air since the kids watching then wouldn't be familiar with the beige walls.  And I think 1331-1335 may have continued a story from 1326-1330, so that makes sense.  But, from your review, it seems that 1336-1340 is a completely independent story.  I had always assumed that week didn't air due to the Tomorrow song in 1336.  But your review shows that it had Good Feeling, not Tomorrow, so that wasn't the reason either.

Did any of those skipped weeks have anything that seemed especially outdated?  Did any have anything that would not be politically correct these days?  Did any make references to past weeks that kids would not be familiar with?  Were any redundant with newer episodes?  Any guest stars who were later considered objectionable?

In reading your reviews, I didn't see anything obvious.

Alternatively, was there anything special about the weeks that aired multiple times, especially 1386-1390?  Ironically, 1386-1390 did continue a story from the past week, which did not air in 1993, 1994, or 1995.  It's especially strange in 1995, when they aired 3 random post-75s before 1386-1390, so it's as if they were actively avoiding 1376-1385, even though they had aired in 1992.

It's hard to say, really. As I was watching these, I did try to keep any eye out for anything that would maybe be considered non-PC now or something else that my have been reason for no longer airing specific episodes. Nothing really jumped out at me though. So unfortunately, it appears your mystery continues...
