Suzanne opens this episode with her “shout out” to evergreen actress Betty White
for yet another birthday milestone and shares her anticipation
of the forthcoming Academy Awards.
She then candidly reacts to director Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s Blackfish, the documentary
that details the history of SeaWorld Orlando trainers
and their work with the killer whale Tilikum.
Moving past zoological politics, Bob and Suzanne then share
their experiences shooting Zorro in Madrid, Spain starring Duncan Regehr
and Henry Darrow. Bob details the initial casting process and
the creative satisfaction of working on such a classic character
with nearly total creative freedom.
Bob remarks that Suzanne wrote one of the show’s “scariest”
characters into an episode, and compliments Executive Producers
Gary Goodman and Barry Rosen on their well-oiled
production machine, while Suzanne seems to snicker at the
fact that Bob is obviously afraid of horses.
Remembering guest stars Adam West (Batman), Andre The Giant,
Jesse Ventura, and Daniel Craig (James Bond), Bob tips his hat to
Story Editor and writer Philip Taylor...while Suzanne reminds Bob
that what he seemed most intrigued by were the topless sunbathers
he pretended to ignore at the beach...
