Saw this and taped it on it's original showing. Absolutely hilarious, it's Gary Larsen come to life! I was inspired to dust off the tape and watched it again, I was not disappointed. Fave scenes are "I'll Be Seeing You" "Deep in the Heart of Texas" "In-flight Movie" and "Dead Ranch". Why isn't this available on DVD? If the "powers that be" read this, please release it! If you are a Farside fan, this is a must see, although hard to find, I believe it only ever was shown once. I didn't even know about FSII. These are available (at least, they were) in the UK, but why not here? OH, and I almost forgot, the "inflatable kid" gag, puts Disney's Monsters Inc to shame! Makes you wonder if it inspired the folks at Pixar/Disney.
