It's one of the weirdest shows in the history of television, about a hero based explicitly on Donald Trump, who buys a haunted mansion in the Caribbean and teams up with the ghost of a black pirate who was lynched for freeing slaves. Together they jump in their high-tech superboat and solve crimes in THE 100 LIVES OF BLACK JACK SAVAGE, a series brought to you by Walt Disney, super-producer Stephen J. Cannell (creator of THE A-TEAM and 21 JUMP STREET), and writers Glen Morgan and James Wong (THE X-FILES, FINAL DESTINATION).
It's one of the most confusing, bizarre, and at least arguably racist and sexist television shows we've ever seen. But was THE 100 LIVES OF BLACK JACK SAVAGE... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are here to guide you through all seven episodes of this forgotten curiosity, point out all the incredible ways this series presaged the rise of Donald Trump, and wonder aloud at how a show with monsters that look like the back half of a rat with chicken talons ever made it to the air in the first place.
