On this episode we ask the question, “where have all the ‘human’ heroes gone in today’s cinema?” From past cinematic greats; like Gary Cooper, and James Stewart, to the two-fisted tough guys like Steve McQueen, John Wayne, and Lee Marvin. From the rise of 80’s action heroes such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, and Sylvester Stallone, to the Impossible heroics of Batman, Superman, X-Men, and Thor. We cover a lot of ground in this near epic episode, even daring to ask the harder questions about why there doesn’t appear to be more hero-like qualities in people at large any longer. Controversial figures such as: Mel Gibson, Michael Vick, and Lindsay Lohan are also discussed.
