Forgotten TV ep 30-Tales of the Gold Monkey

The 1982-83 ABC TV series Tales of the Gold Monkey is extensively considered, featuring a two-hour interview with producer Tom Greene. Correction: The 'hero' Grumman Goose (tail number N327) is not at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, NY as stated in the podcast. Their Goose is tail number NC16913 and I misinterpreted a caption on their website. The 'hero' Goose totaled in the 2005 crash was purchased by a Samuel D. for a restoration. He evidently finished, as public flight records show it flew in December 2019, flying 146 nautical miles in central Arkansas.

The short lived CBS MASH spin-off series AfterMASH is considered, including a brief overview of the origins of MASH, an episode review; and many hard to find details, facts about the show, and bits of trivia are divulged.  Correction: I am likely in error regarding my conclusion that ep 21, By The Book was 'pulled' from airing on 3-5-1984. While it is true no English language US recording seems to have surfaced of this episode, multiple newspapers have By The Book listed on the daily TV listings for that date. In addition, David Goehner states he remembered seeing it; and MASH4077tv.com lists Neilsen ratings for the episode from that date.
