Trivia: All of show's seasons have eight episodes, except the fourth season which has sixteen episodes. Originally, "You Bet Your Life" (ep. #4.8) was the fourth season finale. But the production on the third season of HBO's most popular show, The Sopranos, was running behind schedule and delayed the season premiere. So a few months after the original season finale, HBO ordered another eight episodes of "Oz" rushed into production to fill the time slot.
