The whole crew is together in this episode to talk about Sergio Corbucci's follow-up (and - let's face it - remake) of "The Mercenary", "Companeros" (1970). Nero is back playing another handsome, smooth-talking European mercenary. Jack Palance is back playing his rival again, but now he's got a wooden hand, smoking lots of wacky tobaccy cigarettes, and having conversations with his pet falcon. And then there's Tomas Milian, looking like Che Guevara, and threatening to steal the entire film out from under everyone's feet! Listener comments and a bunch of rambling, drunken asides abound in this one (including Paul's issues with Jack Palance in real life), so why not join the revolution?
