Podcast: Top Dog (1995)

1995’s Top Dog asks the big questions. Well, really one question: What would happen if we paired Chuck Norris with a dog to fight Neo-Nazi terrorists in San Diego and released it nine days after the Oklahoma City bombing? The answer is nothing good.

Reno (played by Betty the dog, uncredited) is a hero dog who plays by his own rules. After his human partner is killed by white supremacist terrorists, Reno teams up with loser drunk spin-kick cop Jake Wilder (Norris) to bust the case wide open. But there are some departures where Reno has to bust up a trap house, and watch the show Cops. Eventually they get around to stopping the terrorists.

Some Notes:

  • We don't actually know if ripping all the wires out of a C4 bomb will disarm it. So if you find yourself with an armed bomb under a limo that has the pope and the Jewish pope trapped inside it, it's best to leave it to the professionals.
