Very interesting, Bryan.  I wonder if that's the version they'll also use
for reruns.
 
I noticed, as well, that in this week's episode (10/3) they had several
shots during the "Previously on ER" segment that were FILM versions of the
shots we previously saw in VIDEO.  E.g., Dr. Green comments on how he's not
going to do any more interviews.
 
So, although it seems unlikely, I wonder if they shot a FOURTH version, on
FILM.  More likely, they just did some limited pick-up shots on film for
these "Previously" segments.
 
Curious, eh?
