I recorded this off a Dish Network satellite when it first aired and have watched it many times since, and it's simply one of the tightest, funniest sitcoms episodes ever produced. Al convinces his boss to run with an important labor-union story, but before it quite gets on the air, the mistaken news breaks that Buddy Hackett is dead. Even the real-life politicians Richard Gephardt and Robert Reich are funny, as Reich tells an entire Buddy Hackett story on Lateline while other (I won't spoil) hilarity ensues. The photo on the main page looks like a DVD box. If so, I'd consider it worth it just to have an archival quality version of this one episode.
