In the late 90s, this Fawlty Towers adaptation had a very brief run as a midseason replacement.

Did it deserve better?

Pilot Season: Heat Vision and Jack

After a 2 week hiatus because Alan went to China for a holiday, Pilot Season returns! And the recording of this podcast was the first time our hosts had spoken since his return. So, naturally, this weeks show includes a brief discussion of a China and tobogganing down The Great Wall of China. After that we get into the 1999 pilot Heat Vision and Jack. It’s a pastiche of shows like The Six Million Dollar Man, Knight Rider and The Incredible Hulk that was co-created by Dan Harmon, starring Jack Black as a solar powered genius, Owen Wilson as his  motorcycle Heat Vision and Ron Silver as Ron Silver, actor and NASA  agent out to get Jack’s super powered brain.
