Crime Fighting Vehicles Rock: Heat Vision & Jack

A now-legendary tv pilot circulating the usual outlets of piracy: Heat Vision & Jack. Written by Rob Schrab (creator of the comic Scud the Disposable Assassin and writer of the movie Monster House), directed by Ben Stiller. Starring Jack Black as an astronaut with a solar-powered brain, Owen Wilson as a talking motorcycle, and Ron Silver as himself. Parodying, well, damn near every prime-time sci-fi show of the late 70s/early 80s (both with and without vehicles).

Oh sure, it would have run out of steam after like 3 episodes (like Birds of Prey or the live-action Tick). But they would have been the greatest 3 episodes of anything ever.

We are not discussing Hardcastle and McCormick becayse that car didn't really ever do anything. That car in Starsky and Hutch fought more crime.

The car didn't do anything? You ask a random sample of people about Hardcastle & McCormick, the first things they'll say are "Brian Keith" and "red race car." They don't know who the hell played McCormick. Do you?

So you're saying the car wasn't named McCormick? Then what was the point of that show. I thought it was about that old dude who drove the partridge bus living on a hill and he was a judge. Then, some Magnum wanna be would drive a car named McCormick up the mountain to get search warrants and shit.

Like on Law and Order but with a cool non flying car.
