This shows a bit of distinction because it’s filmed rather than performed live, which doesn’t seem that odd to us now since a lot of our tv is done like that. Back when this aired, basically all of tv was performed in front of an audience and filmed at the same time. According to it’s Wikipedia page, that decision was made because of budget reasons.
This episode itself is pretty good, it’s about the mysterious supposed suicide of a successful artist.
