Back in 1979, CBS and Universal took a stab at giving Captain America his own television series. Two pilot films were produced and aired, but a series didn’t follow like it did with the Incredible Hulk. Why? Well, there are a lot of reasons for that and that’s what this episode of Fortress of Baileytude Showcase Presents is about.
Joining me to talk about, discuss, dissect, celebrate, and sometimes take cheap shots at these films is Joe Crowe (co-director of the American Sci-Fi Classics Track at DragonCon) and Kevin Eldridge (fellow Classic Track Irregular and co-host of the FlopCast) and boy did we have a good time talk about these movies. We go into how we first saw these movies as well as why we are in such an awesome place when it comes to super-hero entertainment.
This was very much like one of the panels we would put on at DragonCon, just not recorded in a conference room. We may not have a cool van with a motorcycle that rockets out of the back so we can jump your jeeps, but we get by.
I wanted to thank Joe and Kevin for joining me on this journey. It was a lot of fun. Stay tuned until after the end music for a special clip just for Joe.
