I’m a huge fan of the INDIANA JONES movies (Kingdom of the Crystal Skull being a notable exception) and though Doc’s journey into the bowels of the volcano wasn’t conceived as a homage to that series, looking back at it now (and this page in particular) all I can see are the parallels between Dr. McCarver’s adventure and those of the legendary Dr. Jones.
Let’s see, we’ve got…a resourceful, yet reluctant, hero. Check. Testy banter between the hero and his trusty sidekick. Check. Risking life and limb for a mysterious object. Check. A hero with a signature piece of headwear. Check. Danger/death hot on the hero’s heels (alliteration!). Check. And, of course, CLIFFHANGERS. Checkity-check.
Yep, yep, yep…all apologies to Mr. Spielberg and Mr. Lucas. As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Be here NEXT WEEK when our heroes each face the GRAVEST of danger! Can Doc make it out of the tunnel before he is engulfed by the mysterious and MOLTEN HOT blue lava? Will Joe survive the existential horror of his FIRST KISS? Find out in just 7 days – same Daredevil time, same Daredevil channel!
Welp, this Friday Dan, Evin and I make our annual trip to Las Vegas for Super Bowl weekend. This year, in addition to the standard drunken debauchery, I’m also throwing my little brother’s bachelor party. According to my calculations that drops our chances of surviving the weekend by…oh, roughly 100%. But, don’t worry, whether we survive or perish in an epic blaze of Vegas glory NEXT WEEK’S page is already schedule and ready to go. The Daredevils will live on even if we don’t. However, depending on the severity of the alcohol induced brain damage done over the weekend, I cannot guarantee that the blog will make even a scintilla of sense.
Anyways, till next week!
