HMOTD 028: Bonus Minisodes!

Happy Monday, HMOTDians! We have our schedule for our three bonus minisodes this week, and here they are:
  • Tuesday, September 27: HMOTD 028a: Real Incredible People, our look at the pop culture threads that fed into WKRP's "Real Families" episode, including reality media both before, during, and after the early 1980s.
  • Wednesday, September 28: HMOTD 028b: The Age of the Long Skinny Mic, our (mostly Leah's and Mike's) nostalgic look back at our favorite 1970s and 1980s game shows.
  • Thursday, September 29: HMOTD 028c: A Former Marine?, our look at some of the changes that Blake Hunter's script for "The Baby" went through before going to air, as well as Blake Hunter's care for the characters of Arthur and Carmen.
All episodes are between 8 and 10 minutes long and will drop at 7 am Eastern each day in all the usual places (here on the blog, iTunes, Stitcher, Twitter, and Facebook). On Friday we're planning to do some brief Show Notes for each episode. We hope you enjoy this look at the HMOTD cutting room floor!


  1. Is 28a's title a reference to the Mad Magazine parody of the genre?

    1. It was more a potted reference to the SNL sketch of the same name which I remembered very faintly, but it somehow doesn't surprise me to find Mad also used that same formulation. :)
