FtL 211 – Evel Knievel

In the mid 1970s, CBS noticed that America was in love with famed motorcycle stuntman Evel Knievel. That’s why decides to slap his name on this show, which features no actual Evel Knievel and very few stunts.

Sam Elliott brings his distinctive southern charm to this series about the beloved dare-devil travelling the country with his trusty pit crew. Along the way they deal out action, adventure and good old fashioned 70s style misogyny you just like your dad used to make.

But, when Evel threatened by a female stunt rider, him and the boys must band together and do everything they can to put this young upstart back in her place.
But, when Evel is threatened by a mad bomber, determined to end his career and his life, him and the boys don’t really give two shits.

And neither will you! We promise.
