#16: Mad Max Edition

August 26, 2018

Gather your gas cans, canteens and studded leather chaps, this week we go traveling through a post-apocalyptic Australian wasteland with a very unlucky but ultimately heroic man named Max. On this episode we are watching not one, but two films from the Max Max series, namely 1981’s THE ROAD WARRIOR (MAD MAX 2) and MAD MAX: BEYOND THUNDERDOME (1985).
