Added DiffLines:

* OutOfOrder: The airdates of the season two episodes "Phase One" and "Double Agent" were swapped. "Phase One", which completely [[ReTool retools]] the show, was given "Double Agent"'s post-Super Bowl timeslot to attract new viewers (it didn't work -- it was the lowest post-Super Bowl ratings since 1975) and "Double Agent" had some new scenes shot to fit the revised continuity. Additionally, the ending of "Double Agent" where [[spoiler: Francine is murdered by her double]] was tacked on to the end of "Phase One" instead, explaining some of the inconsistencies [[spoiler: like why Francie jumps Will and starts making out with him apropos of nothing]] in the episode proper.
