Episode 164 - Eragon and Justice League of America

This week we are talking about some unsuccessful adaptations. First up, it's an unsuccessful adaptation of an apparently pretty terrible book series with Eragon. In this film, the titular Eragon finds a magic dragon egg and when the egg hatches he finds himself the proud papa of his very own dragon. But evil king John Malkovich isn't very happy about this!

Then we take a look at another unsuccessful adaptation, this time it's a bungled attempt at a live-action Justice League of America TV series from 1997. As sitcoms were all the rage back in the 90s, they thought it was a good idea to have Flash, Green Lantern, Atom and Fire all living together having wacky adventures amidst fighting dastardly villains. To really establish some high stakes, their foe for this failed pilot is none other than... The Weather Man!
