Tread Perilously — Manimal: Night of the Beast

tp1400-1Tread Perilously celebrates its 250th episode (33 episodes late) with the final hour of Manimal, “Night of the Beast”

When Lt. Rivera gives Police Woman a three day weekend for foiling a mob operation, Manimal and Black Partner encourage her to join them in their excursion to a small town upstate. Manimal hopes to study a rare, local flower while the others hope to lose themselves in a few days of doing absolutely nothing. But little does our trio know that greedy land developers and the mob are “encouraging” the town to allow them to expand the nearby country inn into a luxury hotel casino. Will the legend of the golden bear help Manimal stop unchecked capitalism?

Erik explains why the 250th episode is 33 episodes late. White Philip makes a cameo appearance. A discussion of Coen Brothers movies breaks out. Justin tries to determine when guest star Robert Englund filmed A Nightmare on Elm Street. Both the Highlander television series and the original V get added to the list of shows worth covering. Erik becomes convinced this was the second episode of Manimal produced and, in its final moments, the show gives Justin something to remember: a bear fight.
