By popular demand, legendary television writer Ron Friedman ("The Odd Couple," "The Andy Griffith Show," "All in the Family," "Barney Miller") returns to discuss the structure of storytelling, the importance of escapism and the inspirations for Captain Marvel and the Sub-Mariner and to regale Gilbert and Frank with all-new stories about Lucille Ball, Lenny Bruce, Tony Randall, Danny Thomas and (of course) Pat McCormick. Also, Jack Benny takes a stand, Carol Wayne dodges a bullet, John Huston tangles with Errol Flynn and Ron remembers his friend, the late, great Stan Lee. PLUS: Stump and Stumpy! Herve Villechaize's doppelgänger! Marilyn Monroe converts! Buster Crabbe teams with Chuck McCann! And Ron kills off a beloved fictional character!
