This week Lee and Daniel take a look at two blaxploitation films with a female lead that don’t star Pam Grier (don’t worry, they’ll eventually get to her as well). Up for review first is the Bondish “Cleopatra Jones” (1973), and then the cheap, chopsocky cash-in “TNT Jackson” (1974). Listener comments are also covered. This one is a bit more of a casual episode again — short and sweet and hard to defeat. Take a hard line and you’ll have a bad time. Turn that frown upside down or you’ll enter demolition town. It has kicks to the head that will leave you dead. Okay, we’ll stop now.
Featured Music: “The Wrecking Yard” and “The Theme from Cleopatra Jones” by J. J. Johnson.
Lee and Daniel are back and are joined by special guest host Gary Hill, the prolific podcaster of Cinema Beef fame, to take a look at the Louis Gossett Jr.-helmed four-film “Iron Eagle” franchise. How much booty shakin’ Louis Gossett Jr. talk can they cram into one episode? Tune in to find out! Also, Gary plays the THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE… FILMOGRAPHY game, and the hosts talk about what they’ve watched, and cover listener comments.

Featured Music: “Gimmie Some Lovin'” by The Spencer Davis Group and “Road of the Gypsy” by Adrenalin.
