In truth Sci-Fi fashion, it's actually the second episode of the series. Burt is sent out on his first "assignment," to a town overrun by Shriekers. The word is that it's a good entry.
The last three weeks without Burt have been rough (and I missed last week's episode, unfortunately) so this should be a relief.
Anyway, since it's the very last episode, I urge you guys to watch it. The show hasn't been canned officially yet. I figure it's worth giving a shot at a rescue.
