Have to say that this episode holds a special place in my heart as it is the first episode I ever saw when watching reruns in the early to mid-seventies. I also like that Artie contributes quite a bit to their success, not to mention (being a coin collector) how a silver dollar is featured prominently. I know I mentioned this years ago but the Morgan silver dollar did not appear until 1878, after Grant was no longer president. West conveniently has his thumb covering the date for the close up but it is a seated liberty dollar in another shot, which is time appropriate. Looking forward to seeing it this Saturday.
Yes Watery Death is a terrific way to first start watching the show. Same with your 2 episodes, Roger. My first episode I ever remember watching was Night of The Kraken in Season 4. I was hooked to the show ever since!!
Yes looks like 1873 still. BUT....the $1 coin Artie threw and magnetically stuck to the light is not the same kind Jim held in his hand after he pulled it off hiding the date with his thumb. Blooper coin!
