Haaa, You are right - thin negatives. No there's no difference between types of films. I develop by infrared viewer and the emulsion comes up quickly and you are so right that if you don't flip it over and look at the base, you will be tempted to pull the film. TMY-2 is no different than any other film (though X-Ray film may be a different story - isn't it 2-sided emulsion?)

(I develop to time and temperature, but with the aid of infrared viewer because it's as much fun as developing prints when you can watch it develop.)
