Episode Details ((Add/Correct Information))

> #29 - The Hunt

Johnny is recruited to help the CIA track down Osama Bin Laden.

Original Air Date: July 27, 2003

Other Information (Trivia, Fun Facts, etc):
None of the regular cast besides Hall appear, although David Ogden Stiers does the voiceover at the beginning and John L. Adams is briefly heard on Johnny's answering machine.

Due to USA Network concerns, Osama bin Laden is never mentioned by name on-screen.

So why does Johnny have trouble psychically getting into the rigged room? Presumably it's a trap set by the bad guys in a random decoy oepration, are they blocking Johnny psychically? They don't seem to have a psychic or anything. But there's nobody actually in the room - why can't Johnny can't get in there until he gets a psychic boost?

If they're so big on security and not letting the psychics talk to each other, why do they let Johnny take his sketches back to the psychics' quarters?

Johnny: So, who's the Hunter Thompson fan?

This is presumably a reference to Hunter S. Thompson, who was an American author. He was known for his flamboyant writing style, most notably deployed in his novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which blurred the distinctions between writer and subject, fiction and nonfiction. It became known as gonzo journalism and was widely imitated. He recently passed away on February 20, 2005.
