    Jim and Don stand outside Madison Square Garden the day of the Van Halen concert and pretend to be with ‘Van Halen TV”. They interview fans telling the fans that the bad was backstage watching.

    BOOK OF WARRANT:
    A short-lived, one episode segment where Jim dresses up as a preacher and reads lyrics from the song Cherry Pie.

    OVERVIEW:
    This was the pilot episode and you can tell. The production and delivery was clumsy. Some segments worked better than others. The Book of Warrant was a failure and never to be seen again. Stump the Trunk showed it's potential and stuck around. This was not the best episode but it did lay the groundwork for what has become one of the best shows on cable television.

      I love this show. Seen all the episodes and even if I don't care for the guest(s), I still dig it. I'm glad the latest season was hour long episodes and I hope that continues.
