  • Johnny thinks he's hearing God and is trying to find a goal for himself.

    This might be one of the funnier episodes from Season Two. This is a one man show pulled off well by Howard Hessman. Episode begins with Hessman waking up thinking he's hearing God.



    However, when he reveals that God's speech is blurred, it creates trouble for Johnny.



    Fever is probably the most out there character from the show, so it was perfect writing to have Johnny the person to be that talked to God.



    The laughs as you can imagine are huge. Hessman does all the emotions well from fear to curiosity. Fever comes across as the misfit he usually comes across but the added element of this religious encounter with God grabs the stations attention.



    The writing for this was great. Like I said, any other person or actor doing this role wouldn't come as humane as Hessman. Hessman is an underappreciate, underrated TV and Movie actor.



    This episode is a great indication of why he was part of the geniuses that made WKRP special.moreless
