The Flying Nun Full Episode Guide

  • The nuns try to go into busness again, this time they have Sister Sixto baking bread.

  • The 99 year lease of the Convent is up. The Landlord decides to move in for a while, much to the sisters dismay.

  • Psychedelic episode featuring The Sundowners. Sister Bertrille hears that Sonny and the Sundowners will be performing at Casino Carlos A-Go-Go. She knew Sonny and wants to say hello. When they meet, Sonny offers to help the convent and asks Sister Bertrille to write a song, they'll record, and she'll get the royalties.She writes a very sixties image-laden song that the Sundowners turn into an all out acid-fuzz-psychedelic-trip! All the nuns go to the go-go club to hear the song's debut and flip out when presented with a trippy strobe light show, caged go-go dancers and background vocal lines like "grow your own," and "magic mushrooms!" Must see rock n roll TV! Paul Peterson, The Sundowners.
