Roberto! – July 27, 1982

We are back with a new episode talking about Season 4’s “Roberto!” Sam is Roberto Guttierrez, a tabloid talk show host in small-time Destiny, New Mexico. To talk about “Roberto!”, we have to talk about Dr. Laura Schlessinger (who appears as herself), Geraldo Rivera (yes, Sam Fain, we really, really have to), and how this episode tips its hat to Rivera’s infamous, live “Al Capone” TV special. We also talk about Scott Bakula’s direction of the episode, pay tribute to Skeletor, and “fan-wank’ our way through making the latter half of the episode’s plot to force it make sense.
