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.
In the wake of #RoyalBaby The Unemployed Historian looks at an earlier George. It’s film based on the play by Alan Bennett about the regent that lost America, with his Purple pee, smuggling sheep and more!
