For the new season, here are the changes in the show opening:
(1) Instead of Trapper leading a medic team to the landed chopper, we see B.J. running out to the chopper. (This was later reshot to show B.J. checking on a patient in the chopper.)
(2) Mike Farrell's and Harry Morgan's names replace Wayne Rogers' and McLean Stevenson's in the opening credits.
(3) Jamie Farr is added to the opening credits.
(4) The opening credits are done in a much larger font than before; this will remain for the remaining episodes.
