Episode descriptions on DVD that are not exactly reflective of content (1 Viewer)

Something I'd like to know about the describing of episodes in a seasonal (or series) DVD release: why do such releases sometimes have episode descriptions that are not exactly reflective of the content of that season's (or series') episodes?

Take the sixth go (1976-77) of Emergency! (the final regular go, before the six post-series TV movies started), and a sixth-and-final-season episode called "Isolation" (OAD Saturday, March 19, 1977 on NBC; final episode on Disc 4 of the sixth-and-final-season release). The description says "Stranded at Station 86 when a rainstorm washes out the bridge, Gage and DeSoto become the sole emergency medical responders in the area, rushing to the scenes of multiple victims in need of help."

The typo in this description is that they only rushed to one scene which had multiple victims in need of help, and that was the auto accident off the side of the road in the dirt in an overturned vehicle (5 people needed assistance with that one); all of their other victims were treated right at the fire station, and further treated at Rampart later.

What I would like to know is why the description was written as though all the victims were rushed to and treated in the course of the paramedics' duties in that area in that episode. Attached is the description as captured from the inner episode guide on the sixth go (keepcase version), BTW...


Also, which release(s) for you has/have/have had descriptions that are/were not truly reflective of content?
