And here we are, at the final episode. We had no idea when we met that night that it would be the last taping. James was recovering from his cancer treatments and had a frog in his velvet throat, but he had taken the subway to get there that night, which suggests he felt strong. At any rate, he was up to the task, as you can hear for yourself.
In writing the show, I threw in some of the more classic characters from prior episodes. Robin from Harlem makes an appearance, although we were unable to use the actress who created her. Melissa Moline comes back as well, with a vengeance. Had we known, we might have thrown in a Craig Cooper bit, but apart from that, this is the show I would have written—a final valentine to our dear friend.
We have them below in bite-sized bits, as well as the entire episode for those of you who can hang with us for a half hour. Enjoy!
