Thrilling Adventure Hour: Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars, “Showdown You Move Too Fast”

Another episode of Thrilling Adventure Hour with Garret, recorded on October 1, has been posted on 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.

New interview & return date for Raising Hope

If you missed it on Twitter, Garret did an interview for the Cracker Radio podcast, which you can listen to here (at the 18 min. mark):

He talks about Raising Hope, the babies, Terminator, and the four movies he has been working on over the summer, among other things. Summer movie #3 is still a mystery, but there are a couple of new tidbits in the interview that I don’t think he’s mentioned on Twitter. Alan Cumming being one of them.
