Or is this episode called “Unchained Melody”? Sam leaps into Chance Cole, a prisoner on a Southern chain gang in 1956. Cole is shackled to fellow inmate, Jasper Boone, who has been wrongfully imprisoned for series of store robberies. Somehow, Sam and Al must prove Jasper’s innocence from inside the prison.
We discuss the episode (Sam thinks it’s solid, Dennis, not so much), talk about the episode’s hat tips to “The Defiant Ones” and “Cool Hand Luke”, and continue to discuss some conversations in the Facebook group surrounding the show’s 30th anniversary.
