1. Intro
A story of 50,000 volts, a partner as erotic art, a partner at Narcotics Anonymous, a fathers distrust, American Homeowners and Denny finding his bliss again.

Tease: Sitting in the co-host seat? What’s my line guess his identity. Y/N: You’re an actor / producer/writer/director? You have a special bond with Jay Leno? You portrayed the young killer in a movie that really hit me for a loop in the mid-80’s – Rivers Edge. You acting in Shock and Oww?
Danny: I could see his veins glowing right through his skin. He as being charred from the inside out. And I could smell his burning flesh from where I was standing. It smelled just like a roast. A well-deserved cooked roast.
Daniel Roebuck, Denny Crane's 'American Homeowner' Russell Blayney, is joining me for the deconstruction of episode 18, Shock and Oww! to provide commentary.
