  • This table is sortable and can present the episodes either in the order they were broadcast (click on the sort buttons in column "Ep.#") or in the order they were produced (click on the sort buttons in the column "Production No.").
  • The episodes were not all broadcast in the same order as they were produced. The broadcast order is also the order of episodes in the DVD set. However, syndicated reruns and paid streaming services such as Netflix sometimes follow the production order (e.g. K-401, K-402, K-403....)
  • In Season 2, there are only two small differences between broadcast and production sequence. K-403 was broadcast before K-402 and K-407 before K-406. There are no continuity issues watching the episodes in either sequence.
