In this episode, we take a look at two half-hour TV rarities from the late 1950s. First up, your humble hosts Jens, Yavar, and Clark (aka "Goldsmith's Bad Boys") head into cutesy family sitcom territory with "Lips That Touch Lipstick", a Goldsmith-scored episode of the short-lived series Peck's Bad Girl. Afterwards, they explore something a bit more dramatic: the unaired pilot of the cop drama The Sergeant and the Lady. Comedy and drama, playful melodies and aggressive jazz scoring, thoughtful analysis and goofy moments — suffice it to say this episode has a bit of something for everyone. All the other kids at school are listening, so you probably should, too.
