After the leftfield success of the mysterious, enigmatic Twin Peaks, David Lynch returned to television in 1992 with On the Air, a situation comedy (of all things) centered on the backstage hijinks on the set of a 1950s variety show. Unsurprisingly, Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost put an eccentric spin on the tired TV format, mixing surrealism and slapstick to great effect. Although seven episodes were filmed, only three were aired by ABC.This episode:
"The Lester Guy Show" is about to premiere live, with a dramatic Kitchen Scene planned as the show's climactic moment. A mishap with the sound effects board and a comical head injury reduces the Kitchen Scene to farce, redeemed by starlet Betty Hudson's tender rendition of a song "The Bird in the Tree".
Note- In 1997 TV Guide ranked this episode number 57 on its '100 Greatest Episodes of All Time' list.
