For some of you, this may be old hat, as it’s been circulating in bootleg form for some years. But for those of you who have not seen it, it will be a revelation. This pilot, for a show called “Heat Vision & Jack,” stars a pre-fame Owen Wilson & Jack Black, and was directed by a pre-annoying Ben Stiller.
Jack Black plays a super-smart astronaut on the run from Ron Silver (who plays himself), riding his talking motorcycle (played by Wilson). One of the most conceptually audacious comedy shows I’ve ever seen, and effectively executed, too. FOX passed (understandably, I’d say, given how ridiculous the whole thing is), but it lives on to entertain us all.
