Podcast: T-Force (1994)

Direct Download.

Your Stupid Minds goes back to basics with your standard sci-fi sexy police robot thriller. It’s 1994’s T-Force starring Jack Scalia, Erin Gray, and Vernon Wells. This is brought to you partially by Cinema TerriblĂ©, Austin Texas’s premier bad movie meet up. T-Force was part of a recent double feature at the monthly get together and a smash hit.

T-Force, a team of autonomous robots called “Cybernauts,” is brought in to break up a Die Hard style hostage situation. The team is made up of leader Adam (Evan Lurie), Captain America type Cain (Bobby Johnston), lady robot Mandragora (Jennifer MacDonald), American Gladiator Zeus (Deron McBee), and another one who dies.

Adam callously murders numerous hostages in the process and Mayor Pendleton (Gray) orders the team deactivated. This results in T-Force’s murderous killing spree in the name of self preservation. Cain doesn’t go along with Adam’s dastardly plan and teams up with Lt. Jack Floyd (Scalia) to stop them.

Some Notes:
  • See Zeus a.k.a. Deron McBee a.k.a. Malibu on American Gladiators and Married... With Children.
  • Jack Scalia has maintained a relatively active career throughout the years, with significant roles in Dallas, Remington Steele, All My Children, and Red Eye.
  • Lady robot Jennifer MacDonald is perhaps best known to 90's kids as Lt. "Flint" Peters, a character your Mark Hamill avatar can romance in Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger, a game with a bigger cast than the 1999 movie we reviewed.
  • Fun fact: The "T" stands for "Terminal."
