Ok, maybe it doesn't make sense to leave an unstable prototype alone in a warehouse where anyone can reactivate it without at least taking the wheels off, but dammit KARR was awesome.
The original Knight Rider gave us two episodes featuring KITT's evil prototype, the Knight Automated Roving Robot (KARR!) and each featured a different take on what was possibly KITT's greatest nemesis.
Trust Doesn't Rust introduces us to KARR, voiced by Peter "Optimus Prime" Cullen. This KARR is somewhat naive, but self-centered and dangerous. KARR returns in "KITT vs. KARR", this time with an amber scanner and the voice of Paul Frees - an equally accomplished voice actor. Now KARR is pure evil, manipulative and bent on revenge.
James and Sid are joined by Tobias Ellis, the person who helped get Reels and Wheels started, to drop some knowledge and nostalgia into the conversation. Maybe these shows weren't perfect, but they were freaking awesome.

Cars 3... Is it a shameless cash grab to sell toys or an homage to the fans of the first movie?
The answer is probably both. The Cars universe expands quite a bit with plenty of great new toys to sell to your kids. However, Cars 3 also goes back to the successful formula that made the first movie a hit.
Sound familiar? It's taken the same path as the first three Toy Story movies and the first three Indiana Jones movies. But that's the strength of the Cars franchise - it lifts big pieces of successful movies and adapts them to its own universe.
Sid and James are joined by the Alpha Geek himself, Derek Williams - stand up comic, voice actor and co-founder of Geek Night Comedy to talk about Cars 3 as we scratch a bit below the surface of another fun Pixar movie.
