In my opinion, these were needed. They cut off the music and faded it out and didn't include those 3 second recaps of the final scene of act 1, 2 and 3 that led to a commercial break in black and white with the MP logo. Season 4 and 5 have them though. Why did they cut these out of season 3?! I wish they could re-distribute season 3 DVD with them in!
