The episode "You, Murderer" incorporated footage of Humphrey Bogart with new footage of an impersonator. Bogart is actually credited as a guest star in the episode. This may be the first time that a TV series has given a guest star credit to an actor who has been dead for close to 40 years. See more »

Here's Looking At Ewe, Kid.
13 August 2006 | by punkermunkey7See all my reviews

This episode stand out in my memory as one of the greatest and strangest episodes to date. I would have to had seen it once again to recall the details but I believe it uses the same First Person Narration/Perspective as the episode 'Abbra Cadaver' in Season 3 of the series and is in black & white. The plot centers around a Humphrey Bogart style character, following his appearance in Casablanca in the 1940's and those whom he encounters and the events leading up to his demise. John Lithgow also has a stellar role in this episode, but a much more serious role than his typical wacky 3rd Rock From The Sun style. I can't wait for this season to arrive on DVD so i can watch this episode once again.
