WKRP Episode: "Love, Exciting And New"

This is one of my favorite episodes from the fourth season. Andy goes out with Mama Carlson to try and get her to pay for a new transmitter -- it was destroyed by the terrorist bomber in "An Explosive Affair" -- and starts to fear that he's being sexually harassed. This episode gives Carol Bruce her second-best part as Mama Carlson (next to "Baby, It's Cold Inside"), brings back Ian Wolfe as Hirsch, and begins with a guest appearance by TV/film actress Colleen Camp, promoting her appearance in Peter Bogdanovich's They All Laughed.

In my opinion, Hirsch is one of the greatest recurring characters in sitcom history.

"They All Laughed" of course starred the Late Dorothy Stratten. It's too bad they didn't have her on WKRP, but then who knew what the future held.
