We’re back for season two, where we’ll be sampling from the very best of 80s action television as we watch the pilots where all these stories begin. This week, we’re with the A-Team, who from what we gather are an elite team of special forces con-men, as they attempt to run a mercenary co-op with a side hustle of Hollywood studio backlot misadventures. Things get a little rough in patches, but the theme song is rad and Mr. T is still awesome.
On this season finale of WHY IS MR. FEENY A CAR?! Jim Jones joins us to break down one of the best KNIGHT RIDER’s of all time, which introduces the villainous KARR! What does the world’s oldest millennial think of all this mess? What are A.Ron and Jay thinking of doing on the off season? The answers to these and many other questions await your listen!
A.Ron thinks this is the dumbest episode of Knight Rider to date, but Jay’s loving this week’s Devon-centric action, as we find out he’s a rather deep old file after all. Devon winds up being the sole witness to the slaying of a journalist who knows too much, and finds himself on the wrong side of the law against a slew of crooked cops. Can Michael and KITT clear his name and bring down the corrupt county judge behind an elaborate cover up of construction malfeasance? And more importantly, can they make it to the county line before the sheriff’s end their do-gooding permanently?!
Well howdy, pardner! You ready to rustle up a chalkboard and do some cow math? What’s that, city slicker? You’ve never heard of cow math?! Then this podcast is for you! By the time we’re done, you’ll know exactly how many head a’ cow you can graze off how many footacres of water happen to be in your catchment basins. And if math just ain’t your thing, maybe you’ll be entertained by Michael’s attempt at breaking a wild, fiery, rancher’s widow? Or KITT’s attempt to corral a literal cow?
This week Michael and KITT are put on security detail for state senator! Sen. Maggie Flynn is a real “Bernadette” Sanders type, a champion of the people who is trying to block a corrupt development deal that will threaten the environment and cause resident’s power bills to soar. If the civically dubious direct action doesn’t grab you, Devon plays model UN!
With a title like that, how can this episode possibly fail? It can’t. A maniacal real estate investor backed by henchmen Gul Dukat and the mysterious “Mario” tries to force out a small mom and pop stunt show by sabotaging their arena. Did you know that a car can also ski? Well, they can! KITT almost crushes a man, and ultimately has to stop a bomb with his butt. The Hoff continues to put on a fashion clinic, you have to see this man’s spectacular stunt suit. Even KITT gets a makeover!
After a whopping three hours of televised adventures, Michael Knight decides he needs some rest and relaxation. So he dons his finest autumn collection from Sears and heads to the small town of White Rock to do a little climbing. Wouldn’t you know, he’s sucked into a biker gang war by a pretty lady with a young kid. Kid brother or secret child? We podcast, you decide!
This week Michael Knight and his car pal KITT get embroiled in an illicit nuclear arms deal, as corrupt military leadership tries to smuggle out tactical nukes to the highest bidder. There’s so much to talk about; Michael’s funeral fashion, the finer points of snack wagons, tac-nukes with kitchen timers, Devon being over Michael’s s$%* just two episodes in, and the debut of KITT’s infamous butt pin maneuver!
In this exciting movie-length first installment, JayMcKane and A.Ron check out the series premier of KNIGHT RIDER, “Knight of the Phoenix”. In this episode Michael loses everything, even his face! But he is handsomely rewarded with a Hasslehoff based makeover, and everyone in contractually obligated to remark on how good he looks. He’s then gifted an indestructible super car, which he uses to catch some shuteye, evade traffic citations, and get revenge on his partner’s killer. All in a day’s work, for the KNIGHT RIDER!
