Tom and Morgan have been assigned to dissect the cult sci-fi/fantasy TV classic, Sapphire & Steel!

In this episode, Morgan teaches Tom all about the ITV drama that ran from 1979 to 1982, starring Joanna Lumley and David McCallum.

In the episode, we discuss:

  • NCIS star David McCallum's surprising influence on hip-hop
  • How all this time, Tom thought it was a buddy cop drama, getting it confused with Dempsey and Makepeace
  • Morgan trying to explain the plot to Tom is met with the response 'what do you mean, though?' at least three times
  • Why you can't run a museum in this show's universe
  • How they have possibly better powers than Superman and Batman combined

Clips used:

  • Sapphire & Steel (ITV)
  • David McCallum & David Axelrod - 'The Edge' (Capitol)
