Why Does It Exist?

Podcast #60: Terminal Countdown AKA Y2K

In Uncategorized on January 23, 2014 at 2:50 pm

This is a very low quality image of the most suspenseful part of the movie.

We’re back: a dinosaur story! After a much-needed (ed. note: nope) four-month break, Why Does It Exist? makes its triumphant return with Terminal Countdown AKA Y2K, a very timely Y2K panic thriller starring the guy from Unforgiven (the very 90s-named Jaimz Woolvett) as a bowlcut-sporting hacker who teams up with geriatric marine Lou Gossett Jr. and Russian-accented Sarah Chalke to prevent the USA from exploding Russia. I’m joined by returning guest Walter J. Lyng for a trip down memory lane to a more innocent time when laptops that could access porn were mind-blowing and the lush green forests of British Columbia looked just like the Amazon.

Catch Walter’s monthly talk show Night Fight this Friday, January 24th at Mainline Theatre (3997 Saint-Laurent) in Montreal!
