  • It was one of the best of the last Episodes of it final season!

    this truly was one of the best written episodes of the final season and given that they had only two months to wrap up production ,they managed to fill in everything and make what they had work! was not a bad plot and well done and one of the most rememerable episodes of its time,now that there is s a new show ,it still has its self to prove and the reality is that without all the stunts ,its gonna bomb out in no time flat,but now the new show is almost finished and there maybe a chance of Hasselhoff showing up ans posibly his kitt from gunball 3000?....we will just have to wait and see.moreless
