Tread Perilously — Night Man: Manimal

Tread Perilously celebrates its 300th podcast with an unusual choice — an episode of Night Man called “Manimal.”

Discovering how to travel in time, Manimal tries to stop Jack the Ripper’s murder spree. Instead, the notorious Whitechapel killer makes his way across time to “present day” San Francisco. There, he terrorizes Manimal’s daughter and plots yet more murder. Will Manimal team up with saxophonist-turned-costumed-hero Johnny Domino to stop the Ripper or will the secrets of transmutation be lost for all time? Also, where’s Police Woman and Black Partner?

We promise, this is an episode of Night Man and not Manimal.

Erik tries to determine the premise of Night Man. Justin decries the failure of storytelling on display. Erik notes the similarities between Night Man and Manimal. Justin tunes to WEVL 97.3FM. Both recall the place Malibu Comics held in the early-to-mid 1990s. Erik accidentally creates “Bloodpool” the long missing 1990s comics character. A discussion of the film Time After Time breaks out. Justin doubts the abilities of Night Man star Matt McColm. The daughter of Manimal leads to split decision and in one of the least likely digressions in Tread Perilously history, Erik and Justin discuss the filmography of Andrew Stevens.
