Plot Overview


  • Originally aired as a 180-minute episode, but has been formatted as three 60-minute episodes in most subsequent re-airings for scheduling reasons. While many guides list it as a three-parter, its initial airing and release on DVD as one triple-length episode should make this the official recognition.
