|Greg Evigan as B.J. McKay with his mischievous passenger, Bear.|
|Remember Ted Danson in these Aramis cologne magazine ads?|
This episode offers everything you want it to including a scene where B.J. drives through a police car blockade which causes an explosion. It even includes a scene with B.J. delivering Allie’s baby in the cab of his truck! In addition to singing the TV series’ theme song, Greg Evigan as B.J. also sings ‘The Christmas Song’ at a children's Christmas party. If you forget that this show was made in the 1970s, you’ll be reminded of this fact when you hear Fleetwood Mac’s ‘I Don’t Want to Know’ and J.D. Souther’s hit song ‘You’re Only Lonely’ in the background of this episode. Another piece of trivia: the director of the episode is Vince Edwards. TV junkies may recognize Edwards from the 1960s medical drama ‘Ben Casey.’ And, yes--that is a very young Ted Danson playing the role of attorney Tom Spencer.
