This episode was an effort to remake one of Euripides' works. The episode was one of the most eccentric episodes I've heard. Lots of "King James Version" talking and way too much over-acting. It was also an attack on wine. So, if you like that sort of thing, this episode is for you. Alas, not for me; just 3 stars.

Some of the news segments in CBSRMT are creepy too. There's one horrible day where I swear it was like the Jim Jones Temple suicides happened, Idi Amin was eating human flesh and there was some sort of nuclear disaster (Three Mile Island perhaps). It was insane. Gives me perspective (as well as ignites memories of when the events happened) with today's grim news.

I grew up in the Los Angeles area so the only CBSRMT theatre programs I like to collect are those with the KNX News Radio segments prior to the beginning of the program. The Budweiser commercials give me goose bumps, they really take me back when I was 10-18 years old! They are an audio time machine for me!
