The apocalypse happens. Jan-Michael Vincent is pretty chill about it. George Peppard suggests driving from southern California to Albany, New York in an armored all-terrain vehicle. They do that. Movie over.

Improv comic and movie buff James Roach joins James and Sid to talk about Damnation Alley, a movie where NOTHING HAPPENS. Enjoy long scenes where a guy shaves and discusses the rotation for taking showers? No? Neither does anyone.

Damnation Alley is bad. It's worse than a BattleTruck/Killdozer marathon. Listen to this podcast instead of watching it.

Remember when they did a post-apocalyptic pilot for a new Knight Rider series that never got picked up? Probably not. Knight Rider 2010 was part of a group of attempts at syndicated shows called the Action Pack. Unlike the Action Pack's successes (Hercules, Xena), it never got to be a series - but at least we got this bizarre pilot!

Ed Carden of The Pushers and The Push Comedy Theater turned us on to this movie thanks to his love of post-apocalyptic strangeness. 

This movie shares very little with Knight Rider. There is a super car and it does (kind of) talk, and it is piloted by one man trying to make a difference, but that's where the similarity ends.

It's a 1994 take on a future that includes a strange vision of cyberspace, immigrant smuggling, black market human organ trade, and (there's no delicate way to put this) a sexual relationship with the car.

Just, um, just listen.
