For the famous "mirror reflections" in which Sam sees who he leaps into, the series used the old trick of a dual set with a clear glass in the "mirror".

(Especially if the mirror is near a source of light like sunshine).
When the show first aired on NBC there was a longer opening narration than what is heard in syndicated reruns. The network version ran three and a half minutes. The syndicated version runs just under two.
