Wednesday @ 7:30PM -- "Glendora Castle"

Huell has produced thousands of shows, and there have been many fan favorites. One of the all-time greats has to be the old videolog "Rubel's Castle." Michael Rubel took Huell on the grand tour of his hand-made home and charmed us all. Michael has since passed away, and the castle is now managed by the Glendora Historical Society with the help of Michael's nephew, Scott. Huell gets an update tour of this iconic location.

Thursday @ 7:30PM -- "Persian Festival of Fire"

Huell attends events in Southern California connected with the Iranian New Year's celebration.

Friday @ 7:30PM -- "Hot Peppers"

Huell's hot adventure begins at downtown Los Angeles's Grand Central Market, where we discover some of the spiciest peppers and chili sauces around. But you won't find anything hotter than Moe Newaz's backyard variety of Ghost Peppers and Devil's Tongue peppers in Santa Clarita. We also learn about the Scoville Heat Scale, developed in 1912 by chemist Wilbur Scoville, which has become the standard for measuring spicy foods.

Saturday @ 5:00PM -- "Museums"

Huell updates and combines two older shows. First up is Los Angeles' Grier Musser Museum, a turn-of-the century historic Queen Anne house which displays fascinating antique collections. Then Huell stops in at the Historical Glass Museum in Redlands.

Sunday @ 7:00PM -- "Joshua Tree Special"

Huell travels down to where the streets have no name. There, he sees the world's tallest, oldest and most peculiar-looking Joshua Trees in an episode devoted to this remarkable desert plant. Later, Huell meets a man who grew up on a ranch in the seclusion of what is now Joshua Tree National Park.
