In an extra long episode, your favorite and mine, Daniel Budnik, is back to talk about a couple of season 2 episodes, including my favorite of the season. In episode 20, “Cry, Lie”, Chin Ho is accused of bribery, and in episode 21, “Most Likely to Murder”, the wife of a police officer, who is Danny’s friend, is murdered. It’s Martin Sheen with a mustache and Tom Skerritt without one.
Like our previous chat, Dan and I will be spoiling the episodes. I’ll give you a spoiler warning in the episode, of course, but here’s your timestamps: Spoilers for “Cry, Lie” happen about 41:35 to 47:18 and spoilers for “Most Likely to Murder” happen about 1:34:17 to 1:52:09.
I cannot stress it enough to watch both episodes before you listen. You do not want to be spoiled for either one of them. Don’t ruin the experience.

My eternal thanks to Dan for joining me once again. He’s a good sport considering the last time I subjected him to Gavin MacLeod in a prison shower. Be sure to go to Eventually Supertrain and check out all of his writing and his podcasts, including Rockin’ All Week with You, which he somehow failed to mention during the closing and I didn’t realize it. That’s what happens when you’re so prolific.
Here’s a picture of Steve talking to Gloria Warren (Linda Ryan). She’s the reason I have a pixie cut. Watch the episode and you’ll understand why.
One thought on “Book ’em, Danno–Episode 23”
You and Dan are a scream – I loved your breakdown of both episodes. And for the most part, I’m in agreement with you on these eps, though one thing kept bothering me about “Most Likely to Murder.” Who discovered the body? We open with the crime scene already in progress. Obviously the husband didn’t make the discovery, and it’s apparent the initial suspect(s) didn’t report it. The house seemed a little small (and the income modest) for a housekeeper (though the victim was obviously very busy and probably needed a housekeeper). I was hoping you or Dan might mention it. Maybe I missed something at the beginning, but I was waiting and listening for it.
