    Episode 54: Black Cobra
    1987, dir. Stelvio Massi

    Marion Cobretti, move over. Just to your left a little. A couple scoots more, please. There you go. Comfy? Good. Marion, please meet Robert Malone, a badass cop who’s just like you, except he’s played by Fred Williamson. And he wears Cosby sweaters. And talks to his cat, who’s named Pervis. Really. Other than that, though? Total Italian-made rip-off: Detective “Rights are for Wimps” Malone has to protect an eyewitness from a homicidal gang leader, yadda yadda yadda.

    Fun fact: director Stelvio Massi’s name is an anagram of “Lassie Vomits.”
