here in sydney (australia) we've been getting episodes of moonlighting anyway, i was wondering what is this "the big bang" episode? i tried to download it on this site but doesn't work.... is it called another title?
"The Big Bang" was intended to be the original title of that episode. It wound up being called "I Am Curious...Maddie" because ABC (the US network which originally aired the show) objected to the wording, which is a crude slang term.
The irony is that the name which replaced it was a very thinly veiled insult from the show's creators to the censors, and if anything even more provocative, as "I Am Curious...Yellow" was the title of a notorious 1960s erotic film.
In any event, the episode was the fourth installment in what's become known as "the Sam arc," as it's the story of an intense battle between Sam Crawford, a long-lost boyfriend of Maddie's, and David Addison for the attentions of Ms. Hayes.
It aired on March 31, 1987 to incredible nationwide audience and critical acclaim.
Which it roundly deserved.
If you are new to the show, I won't jump the gun and tell you the rest of the details, but welcome...are you ever in for a treat.
