S14:E6 - William Shatner's TekWorld No. 1 (1992)

Born Again

Dec 7, 2020
This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée glimpse the future by reading a 28-year-old comic! In William Shatner's TekWorld no. 1, all of Los Angeles is held in the devastating grip of a new microchip-based drug called Tek. It's basically an Oculus Rift that you don't have to buy DLC for, which means drug lords are officially more consumer-friendly than the video game industry. Since corporate America isn't getting a cut of the action, they decide to pull some strings and arrange an early release for the only man who can get the epidemic under control: A disgraced, roughish ex-cop who's absolutely NOT a thinly-disguised William Shatner analogue! If he was, wouldn't he have a spare tire and a toupee casually sliding off the back of his head without him realizing it? Duh!
