There are two Simon & Simon episodes one was and the other never was included in universal studios rerun package. There was an episode that ran in summer of 81 shortly before the second season of Simon & Simon began. It was a save the series last minute eppy. If anyone has scenes the still photos of the Simons on top of train and climbing on a moving train I belive those are from it. It started with AJ purchasing his house in in Ocean side California. He runs down the stairs with his mother and the realitare in toe. Goes up to the and exitedly says you what I love most about this house is this door. AJ is pointing to the stain glass in the front door. When you come back from commercal Mom enters house and finds age sitting u[p against the mall a sleep in the empty house. She wakes him up and asks why he didnt go home. He says becasue he didnt want to leave his new house. For the life of me I can remeber exsactly what their case was in the episode. But I remeber at the end AJ was packing up the rest of his stuff and saying he will miss their first office. The last scene shows him putting h is red wakk down on the oven in his brand new house all full of furniture. Rick tells him how he lost his boat house nad has move a smaller boat known as the hole in the water intop his back yard wer it will stay till a spot at the marina opens up for it. This episode tied the two seasons together and made everything make sense. It introdusing the audience to the changes of the show as well. It was included in the rerun packages for several years after the show eneded its run. Then promptly disapeared from the rerun package in mid ninties. The one distinguishing thing about this episode is how long Jamesons hair had gotten.
The other episode was called Simon & Simon special episode and was the last episode of the 6th season. It was an hour and half long and let the viewers into the world of the actors and crew of the series. It included bloopers like the never ever scene anywhere blooper of Gerald doing a scene with his fly down. Pictures of the cast as children. Inside secrets such as the cast really dressed as they did on the show, the answering machjine really had Jameson voice on it and was used to take messages. The cast would often come to work and find orders for pizza on it. Also there only three keys made for AJ's house for three main actors and no one got in tell one them showed up and let them in. How the cast was chosen. Filming of the first 7th season episode was being done. I do recall Jameson had on a red polo shirt and black pants. He was very shy infront of camera or seemed so to me. I don't remember what Gerald had on but he was most at home in front of the camera. I remember the episode started our with Mary Carver , Jameson Parker and Gerald McRaney sitting on AJ's bar stools in that house introducing themsevles and ended the same way with Mary telling the boys they were like family to her, with boys saying awww and a group hug. This episode aired on its broadcast air date and during summer reruns. It was never part of the rerun package. Assuming because of the hour half time frame ,which was also explained in the episode buy the cast as what they finally decided on the length being. Proof of this episode is in an article Jameson did for tv guide I think it was wer hw says he had to call his mother to ask for childhood pictures for an upcomming episode. No episode ever featured real childhood pictures of the guys. So he had to have been speaking of this one.
All we can hope for is that Universal finds these episodes an includes them in the dvd seasons. If they enede up in a private colllectin all could be lost. I hope not because I'm excited as fan to see the seried all together again as it should be.
