    Although Chin doesn't get killed until the last episode of the season so you could always maintain your standards by just not watching that one. :) Naked City S1 with John McIntire's demise is the only other pre-1980 show I can think of where a regular character is killed off while the actor appears in the episode where it happens. Other times this would get fudged by using camera trickery without the actor's presence (Robert Lansing in "Twelve O'Clock High")

    Actually, if they ever released the failed 1997 pilot you could say he never died since Cannell didn't know Chin had been killed and all the actors who knew otherwise weren't going to cheat Kam Fong out of a paycheck so they didn't tell him either. :) The one series I have bought on DVD that I refused to buy more seasons of so I could pretend they never happened was "Moonlighting" which for me ceased to exist after S3.

    I've never noticed that, Paul. Is this in all the season sets, or just in certain ones?

    Wow. I've never picked up on that issue, Paul.
