    A very good episode that deals with the rise and fall of a small town singer (whom we saw earlier in this season). James Best is excellent and his ability to convey a down on his luck (but yet pretending to be a great success) is right on the money. He is able to inject a certain amount of humility and charm into the character. I particularly enjoyed the interaction of each of the series characters (Barney, Floyd, Ellie, etc) as Jim sponges off them. This episode was very well written and played by all the principals concerned.moreless
