Heat Vision and Jack
This Ben Stiller comedic pilot is just strange. What was he smoking when he presented this pilot to FOX? However, I could see this concept working on Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. The randomness of the show would have fit right in with the viewers of today. Remember, Stiller made this pilot back in 1999.
I was first against this pilot at the beginning. But, I can see what they were going for, and it would have worked today on cable instead of Fox.
Here are a few notes
-The villain is a cross between the Daleks and the Borg.
-Heat Vision: A talking motorcycle? Did I mention that Owen Wilson voices Heat Vision?
- Ron Silver played himself in the story. The late Ron Silver was very funny as the “other” villain. He’s basically Ron Silver, but with super powers.
