FtL 420 – Exo-Man

A brilliant scientist invents a robot suit that allows him to fight crime. Eventually.

This week’s Failure to Launch examines a 1977 sci-fi pilot, Exo-Man. Sounds fun, right?

It’s about a brilliant scientist who, through amazing technology, builds a bulletproof, invincible robot suit. Sounds cool, right?

He faces off against the mob, who are out to kill him before he can testify in open court. Sounds exciting, right?

There’s car bombs, shootouts, bank jobs, culminating in our hero losing the use of his legs in a targeted hit! Sounds thrilling, right?

It is!
