Just watched the Three Rivers that aired this week, and guess what–they aired what I believe to be that original pilot you spoke about on the TV Times Three podcast way back–unexplained ‘shotgun’ wedding and all, including the worst line at the end, “Can I hear my daughter’s heartbeat?….Remember, you are living for two now…”

Kyle, I didn’t watch it, but I think it may have been the reworked version of the original “Pilot” that for whatever reason didn’t end up being the first episode of the series. But, other than an upgraded set, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t any better than the original.
