Hot Rod Herman

For our second foray into the archives we watched three episodes of the short-running but long-syndicated CBS gothic sitcom The Munsters:

THE FIRST ONE: "Munster Masquerade"

THE FAMOUS ONE: "Hot Rod Herman"

THE RANDO ONE: "Treasure of Mockingbird Lane"

Listen as we dive into the history and trivia of this quirky family comedy. Which cast member recorded a regrettable novelty song? What's the connection between The Munsters and Syfy's FaceOff? Just how much of an earworm is the theme song?

"That twilighty show...about that zone."  -- Homer Simpson

We begin our first exhibit in the TV Museum with a look at the iconic CBS sci-fi anthology The Twilight Zone. This cult hit ran for five seasons and spawned various spin-offs, but is it worth revisiting? We watched three episodes to find out:

THE FIRST ONE: "Where is Everybody?"

THE FAMOUS ONE: "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street"

THE RANDO ONE: "The Hunt"

Listen to the full show to learn more about notable "Hey! It's That Guy"s and whether there is raccoon hunting in the hereafter.
