Reels and Wheels is back! And by request, Matt Cole, our resident Nicholas Cage expert, has returned to talk about the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds! This movie definitely has some baffling moments. It's also got kind of a crazy backstory regarding it's relationship to the H.B. Halicki original. But... is it enough Nicholas Cafe? James, Sid and Matt discuss...

In 1991, an attempt was made to reboot Knight Rider with a new Pontiac Banshee-inspired version of KITT. It failed.  However... It's worth a second watch. Is it good? Not really. Does it do a good job predicting the year 2000? Mostly no. Is it a PG rip-off of RoboCop? Strangly, yes! James and Sid have a lot of weird things to talk about, not the least of which is the presence of Chevy Beretta police cars. Weird.

Ask anybody to name the greatest cars in TV history and the list is often topped by the General Lee. Controversy over confederate imagery aside, the Duke boys and their 1968 Dodge Charger somehow struck a chord with car lovers everywhere.

The first episode of The Dukes of Hazzard is a lot more adult-oriented because the show runners had no idea it would become beloved by kids. It does a great job presenting the characters, their motivations and all of the quirks in pretty short order.

...and the cars! While the General Lee takes center stage with its obnoxious orange paint and improbably jumps, the supporting cast of vehicles is nothing to sneeze at - from Daisy's 1973 Roadrunner to Roscoe's police Monaco to the rare muscle cars that get bumped around because in the 80's nobody knew they were rare... this show is a car lover's dream.
