Warriors of the Wasteland, (also known as The New Barbarians), is an Italian 1983 action/sci-fi film starring Giancarlo Prete and Fred Williamson.

It is only notable in the fact that it is a shameless ripoff of Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior.

An Italian ripoff of a famous film? Where else have we run into this, I wonder...?

Plot[edit | edit source]

Gay religious fanatics try to wipe out a bunch of people who live in various quarries in a post-apocalyptic Texas.

The Episode[edit | edit source]

  • This episode, like the one that preceded it, was supposed to be a Farva. Unfortunately, it was not nearly as entertaining as James had remembered. Damien was displeased at this revelation.

Scores[edit | edit source]

James - Keelhaul

Damien - Avraf

Highlights[edit | edit source]

  • The bit about the year 2000, and how important it was to sci-fi/apocalypse movies in the 70s and 80s and how, despite a contentious US Presidential Election that ended up being decided by Supreme Court, little of historical note and pop culture significance happened in the year 2000.
  • The idea that usually in speculative fiction future technology, like they have in real life, devices become smaller, yet not so much in this movie.
  • The fact that Dubs referenced Pierre Kirby
  • Good Times Basketball
  • The hosts trying to discuss a certain scene involving the main character, main villain and the main character's ass
