Recap: "Inside Probe, Part 2"


This week brings with it the conclusion of the Inside Probe episode. With this installment, it seems we discover the philosophy behind making this two-parter save the best for last. Everyone came out swinging tonight, and with a tighter plot and even funnier material, it was hard for them to miss.


Perhaps what slowed down the first installment was the fact that we had to go through the quick bios of each character for the sake of the non-existent Inside Probe audience. It gave us some humorous moments, but we already know the characters. This time around we only had to deal with the requisite recap of what had already happened. I especially enjoyed the newspaper headlines concerning Earl (Jason Lee) and Randy (Ethan Suplee) (Hickeys Probably Guilty and Guilty: Toldja!) And before launching into everything, we were treated with the first of many well-aimed jabs at investigative programs as our host Geraldo Rivera promised we would dig. a little deeper. in the earth. to find the treasure chest. of this mystery.


With Earl and Randy exonerated, Geraldo explores a series of alternate theories. First up is Ernie having been abducted by aliens. Of course, no one's too surprised when Randy claims to see lights from a possible UFO in the sky. But others saw strange things that night too. Joy (Jaime Pressly) saw lights and a strange person who she thought might have been Jesus, but if it was Jesus, why wouldn't he just say, 'Hey, Joy, what's up?' Next is Officer Stuart (Mike O'Malley). Remember, this is long before he came out of the closet and began dating Kenny James. During the interview, he proceeds to weave a tale of how he extremely reluctantly went undercover to infiltrate a secret gay dance party in the woods, where he witnessed lights in the sky. After all, he drew the long straw. Isn't it the short straw? No, it's the long straw. Lastly, there's a quick interview with Nescobar-A-Lop-Lop, who's apparently been firing rifles at Goodyear blimps.
