Another episode of Thrilling Adventure Hour with Garret, recorded on October 1, has been posted on Nerdist.com. You can listen to it here.
This “Showdown, You Move Too Fast,” like last month’s “Date with Destinos” finds Sparks (Marc Evan Jackson) just trying to make time with his new girlfriend Rebecca Rose Rushmore (Linda Cardellini) but the weirdo sitcom characters surrounding them — Josh Malina‘s Barkeep, Mark Gagliardi‘s Croach the Tracker, and, insanely, Annie Savage‘s hilarious Robot Doors (the saloon’s artificial intelligence) — can’t leave them alone.
We always knew this storyline was leading to the robot outlaw Techs (introduced in the USSA spin-off, podcast #58) outgunning Sparks to become the new Marshal of Mars. Scoring Garret Dillahunt as Techs was a coup for us; we are enormous Deadwood fans. And having Garret as Techs gives this silly showdown gravitas we couldn’t have imagined.
