  • About this episode

    This had great costuming.
  • The employees at WNYX are the crew on the Titanic as it starts to go down.

    This was a hilarious yet extremely unusual episode. By flashback episode, I mean they flashback about 85 years to the sinking of the Titanic. This was very similar to the episode they had when they were on a space station in the far future. It is wildly bizarre but explains quite a lot about the history of the Titanic. For instance, it reveals that Matthew Brock was responsible for the sinking of the ship by not spotting the iceberg. They did an excellent job of placing each character in a role that wasn’t so different from that of the normal show with the exception of Vicki Lewis, who was reportedly shooting a movie at the time. All in all, it ended up well for the most of the cast (Phil Hartman says Dave Foley drowned during filming) and they answered everyone’s question, “What would it be like it the crew at WNYX was on the Titanic?”
