Here is the episode description: When Jack and Dan's reckless police work gets them suspended, Dan "borrows" some money from the Narcotics Division to set up an off-the-books sting operation. However, the unauthorized detective work inadvertently finances a prison break, which Jack and Dan must put a stop to before the prisoners can get away and the department finds out, in the "Vacation" fall premiere episode of THE GOOD GUYS airing Friday, Sept. 24.
-- TNA's website has an interview up with Kevin Nash where he says he feels better than he has in about 5-6 years. "I am one injury away from another rehab stint, but then I am sure I would come back again haha. Right now, I feel better than I have in about 5 or 6 years. I've lost a ton of weight and feel great. I don't see myself stopping right now. I would stop when it stops being fun. I still get nervous when I haven't wrestled in a while, but once I get going, I'm back into it. The other week on iMPACT!, I wrestled Jeff Jarrett in my first TV match in months and the next day, I felt great and really cared about what I do out there."
-- A big promotional push for Mick Foley's new book "Countdown to Lockdown" will begin in the next few weeks.
