The Mikes are traveling back to 1980 so that they can then travel back to 1941 on the USS Nimitz in the Kirk Douglas/Martin Sheen film The Final Countdown. A film recommended to them by Butler's father. Will he listen to this episode? Who knows?! This film, directed by Don Taylor supposedly inspired the 80's hair band Europe's hit single (the title did anyway). Listen as Mike Field and Mike Butler bring you the facts about this film's production as well as discussing this film as perhaps being more recruitment propaganda than actual film, whether there was extra plot cut from the script, and how some of these characters react to being sent back in time to potentially change one of the most important (but terrible) moments in our modern history. So grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits to the left and right of you, and settle down for (Forgotten Cinema).
