Earlier this month, we featured an episode of Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction that was hosted by Jonathan Frakes. What I did not mention, in that post, is that Frakes was not the 1st person to host this show.
The first season was hosted by veteran scenery-chewer James Brolin. Whereas Frakes brought a bemused appreciation to the absurd to his role of host, Brolin’s approach was far more earnest.
And, in appreciation of that earnestness, here’s the very first episode of Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction? This originally aired on May 25th, 1997 and it’s worth watching just to compare Brolin’s blandly sincere approach to the far more snarky approach of Jonathan Frakes.
