S2E01 - "For Love or Money - PT01"
WELCOME BACK! It's the start of Season TWO!! The gang's all back...at least the on-camera gang is back. There are a bunch of new faces in the writer's room, we've moved the entire station from KTLA to the MTM lot and Johnny's getting sued! Season Two is kicking off with a 2-parter. An old flame of the Doctor's named Buffy has come to Cincinnati. It so happens, she's arrived the very same day that Bailey finally gets up the courage to ask Johnny out on a date. Bailey asks, Buffy calls and Johnny accepts...both! You'd think we'd be setting up a classic "two dates in the same restaurant" gag. Nope. Johnny completely forgets about his commitment to Ms. Quarters when given the chance to reconnect with "No Kiddin' Around Buffy." Johnny gets a shock when he discovers what those long-ago "no kiddin' around" days in L.A. might cost him! We spend a lot of time in Jennifer's apartment, Herb has been wardrobe shopping and somebody's trying to sound like Venus on these Shout! Factory disks (t'ain't pretty, fellow babies!). Confused? You're not alone! We'll try to get it all sorted out...but we can't do it in one episode!! Put the Champagne on ice, give Raoul the night off and push 'play'...it's time to start Season TWO. Crab puff?

S1E22 - "Preacher"

S1E21 - "Fish Story"
WELCOME BACK! You know how some guys are funny when they're mad?? Hugh Wilson must be one of those guys. CBS was all over him during the first season of WKRP to write more "visual gags." Over on ABC, "Laverne & Shirley" was regularly in the top five doing a lot of slapstick. Hugh resisted...he fought it...he thought it was lowbrow. He said WKRP is smarter than that!! The Mighty KRP talks about the Archduke Ferdinand and being addle-minded!! Hugh gave in. THIS is the result!! Turns out, Hugh's pretty darn funny when he writes visual gags. "Fish Story" is LOADED with the most over-the-top visuals you could imagine...and they ALL...well, okay...and MOST of them work!! This is where they tucked in that incredible B-story about Johnny getting clearer headed with each shot of whiskey!! It's hilarious!! So if you're ready, grab a hat...I don't know, ask Venus...and load up the gang for one heck of a joyride. Officer Plyler would like to see your license and registration, then he advises you to hit "play" while having another shot of Jack Daniels.
S1E20 - "Young Master Carlson" (w/"Sparky" Marcus Issoglio)

S1E19 - "I Do, I Do...for Now" (w/Tom Chehak)
WELCOME BACK! So just what do we really know about the lovely Ms. Jennifer Marlowe? We don't know where she's from, we've never seen where she lives...we don't even how she gets her peanut butter! In this episode, we take an historic first look in Jennie-poo's apartment. We also meet an old friend from her hometown of "Rock Throw" West Virginia. This old friend, T.J. Watson, claims Jennifer promised to marry him. Jennifer doesn't remember any such thing, but rather than argue she decides to tell T.J. she's already married. Enter our hero, Johnny Fever. The good Doctor takes the fall for Jennifer...literally. This outing is madcap, loaded with laughs and...somewhat sunken, as Johnny's about top learn. Episode Writer and Season One Story Editor Tom Chehak is back with more great stories from the set. This one is a hoot from the holler! Stick some hotdogs in the hotdogger, grab what's left outta Herb's six of beers and hit 'play'...do I hear "Fly Me to the Moon"? Wait a minute, does T.J. have a guitar? What's happening, here?!!?
