FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • With the new opening theme and credits, a teeny blooper that would remain until the end of the series: The first very first shot of T.C.'s helicopter at the start of the opening credits, as it swoops down towards the ocean, is actually shown reversed back-to-front – if you look carefully, you can see that the tail-rotor is on the wrong side. The next shot, looking side-on at the chopper, is the correct way around.

  • NOTES (2)

    • The German episode titles are "Dicker als Blut" (an exact translation) and "Freunde in der Not" ("A Friend in Need"). The French title is "Dette de vie, dette d'honneur", meaning "Debt of Life, Debt of Honor". The Italian title is "Più denso del sangue", an exact translation.

    • Starting this episode, different opening credits are used, using Mike Post and Pete Carpenter's familiar theme tune (already heard on the closing credits for the previous few episodes) on the opening credits. This theme would be used, in several versions, for the rest of the show's run.
