That's how Year 2 was always transmitted in the UK (Opening credits first)
Interesting, my memory differs, but the last time I saw year two on terrestrial was in about 1981 (Granada region).
From watching repeats on Bravo in the mid 90's and watching the DVDs & the one Blu Ray episode it does look like each episode was meant to open with a teaser, in much the same way as year one did, after which the titles would roll. If you notice on the DVDs the title sequence begins followed by 3-4 minutes of story whereupon the episode name suddenly appears followed by on screen support actor credits etc... which tell me that the opening credits have been cut from 3-4 mins into the episode & placed right at the beginning
I've recently been watching the Second season of Space in the form of the US DVD box set and aside from the lousy picture quality I gotta say that after watching The Network Season One box set in HD That Year Two is a Hard watch:wtf:
As per the Italian edition, I can confirm there was no teaser.
Why? I got a theory about it.
You watch the teaser of any Season 1 episode until the timpani roll introduce Martin Landau and you get glued to the tv for the nwxt 50 minutes. :yes:
You watch a teaser of any Season 2 episode and it is likely you go somewhere else. :lol:
