Episode 10 - Steve and Dave Assure You This Podcast is Not a Big Ripoff

Yup, I took a long trip to get to that title.

Yes, we've been away for a bit.  Life gets in the way.  What did you pay for this anyway?

Early on in this episode you see some really cool directorial choices being made.

Is that Monaco?  Switzerland?

Wait, Suzanne Summers in a cameo and Jill Clayburgh throughout?

Music charts were not awesome, though not horrible, on this day.

Flights, and airport security, have changed in 50 years.

Episode 9 - That Closed Case? Steve and Dave Are Still On It

Look, I'm committed to the title bit.

So on to part 2 of this extra long episode that is split up in syndication.

If you are watching this in syndication, which you are, you probably have this as a two parter, and you probably noticed a hell of a lot of driving where nobody goes anywhere.  That's called 'padding' kids.

Indeed, much of the driving you see in part 2 is actually from a 1977 episode.  Check out how the headlights change scene to scene.

Anyway, we get Jimbo getting tacos.  We've got Sharon Gless and Joseph Cotten again, we've got Rocky, and we've got a case!

When Jim puts on his seatbelt, you know it is serious.

Also, a trattoria is not a steak house.

Prop fence.

Episode 42 - A Portrait of Steve and Dave

That was an easy title to come up with! Some great 70s character actors this week. We go deeper into the Beth and Jim relationship this week...
