Canceled Too Soon #130: Tarzan (2003)


Before Eric Kripke created the cult favorites "Supernatural" and "Timeless," he turned the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs adventure hero Tarzan into a sexy crime-fightingseries for the WB network! "Tarzan" starred Travis Fimmel ("Vikings"), Sarah Wayne Callies ("The Walking Dead"), Lucy Lawless ("Xena: Warrior Princess") and Mitch Pileggi ("The X-Files")... and it was pulled off the air after only eight measly episodes.

But was "Tarzan"... CANCELED TOO SOON? 

On this week's podcast, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold look at the history of the pulp hero, including what makes him work, what makes him problematic, and why this particular shirtless, shoeless, bodice-ripping version of the hero never found an audience, despite all the obvious talent involved.

Give it a listen!
