S19:E8 - Spiral Zone No. 1 (1988)

Colossus of Doom

Dec 6, 2021

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée get the spins from 1988's Spiral Zone no. 1! The evil Overlord has taken over half of the planet using secret spiral technology, and it's up to four bros and a lady to maintain the illusion of trying to stop him long enough to generate a successful franchise! But when heroic dunce "Tank" Schmidt gets pulled from the war due to general incompetence, he'll have a lot of time to sit and think about the things that really matter. Things like disobeying doctor's orders to go look for his missing son, who probably doesn't like him anyway. Or the radiation poisoning he may be spreading while doing so. Or the fact that he's obviously walking directly into a trap. Hopefully you only need four people to save the world, because Tank is a walking liability who's probably going to get his head stuck in a honey pot any minute now.
