Episode 2 – Cars

Lightning McQueen and Chick HicksDan Lankford and Matt Robison talk about the 2006 Pixar movie, Cars.

Some of the topics we discuss are old-school American cars, NASCAR (the good and the bad), the need for mattresses in this weird universe, the parallel character arcs of Lightning McQueen and Doc Hudson, respect for earlier generations, merchandising, the tenuous likability of Owen Wilson, what does a truck of recycled batteries actually represent in a universe of sentient automobiles, the laziness of Cars 2, and whether Cars 3 will be the Rocky 5 of Pixar.

For the reference to the Oak Ridge Boys, check out this live performance.
