and I watched it. Called a buddy from HS after and we shared how great it was.

It was probably beneath Abdul though.

It was originally the pilot, not televised. They used it to make a two part episode later.

Trivia alert! The Man Trap is actually called episode 5, but it was the first episode aired.

Spoiler: The old girlfriend was really an alien.

In subsequent episodes that happens a lot. :BigGrin3:
