Am I missing something, or weren't we told that seasons 5 and 6 were supposed to be 10 episodes each? So far we've had 9 episodes of Season 5 (with the Halloween episode) and it's over? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

The first episode was an hour, which counts as 2.

It's less confusing for people to just say... the SG special counts, and be done with it.

CN gave them money to make ten half hours, so they made ten episodes in a very odd way.
GO TEAM INSANITY!

Jackson and Doc both know they should have signed for 12 half hours, but only make ten episodes/stories, so two of which(the opener and the closer) can both be an hour long each.

LIVE AND LEARN, I guess.

Go easy on him guys.

'Prom' didn't count as two episodes.

The rules got changed when the new contracts were signed for 5 & 6.

Season 4 was a weird anomaly. It was originally supposed to be 13 episodes in a row (like season 3) but they had to take a break after a bit because they had been working on seasons 3/4 non-stop. So the compromise was to break for a few months after 8 episodes but make 3 extra. Then the season finale got expanded independently which also accounted for it being delayed. Kind of bonkers.

Very strange. 4 Vol. 1 and 4 Vol. 2 are really their own seasons, connected majorly of course, but the two each have arcs that start and resolve in their eight episodes.

4 Vol. 1 had 21 mourning 24, Hatred as bodyguard, and Hank without Brock as the main plots. They had resolutions with Pinstripes and Poltergeists (except for the Hatred storyline, but I'd argue that his arc was a more long term deal with the boys slowly learning to care for Uncle Vatred).

4 Vol. 2 was about 21 unsure of his role in the cocoon, the boys growing up, and general SPHINX stuff.

I still see them as separate seasons in a sense (any time there's a year break I see it as a new season, I think the same for Breaking Bad) due them taking up two box sets on my shelf, but I suppose a renumbering would be cumbersome, confusing, and ultimately necessary. Season 4 is just a bonkers season, really. I mean, the trailer for 4.2 did start with complete confusion about what it should be called.

I'm not sure what my point is or if I even have one.
