Every week, a group of Internet radio superstars known as the Saturday Night Freak Show (Brent, Tom, Colin, Sean and Travis) file into a subterranean screening room somewhere in Freakshow, IL where they witness sights & sounds undreamed of by mortal men. They emerge... changed, not quite the beings they once were. Good or bad, they will debate the merits of what they have just experienced for the entertainment of you, the listener, and the betterment of mankind.
This week, Tom opens up the throttle and puts the pedal down for The Road Warrior (aka Mad Max 2) (1981), in which a haunted, burnt out former cop (Mel Gibson) roams the wasteland of the post-apocalypse in search of the scarce commodity of gas, battling costumed punks along the way, culminating in one of the greatest chase sequences ever filmed. Listen in and hear the bourbon shot that nearly kills Tom, we talk about great movie stunts, cinematic anti-heroes, Australian cinema, post-apocalyptic-set movies, and more!
