Canceled Too Soon #138: 'BlackJack' (1998)

Dolph Lundgren. Man of action. Cinema titan. He-Man and The Punisher himself. And in the failed pilot for "Blackjack," directed by the legendary John Woo ("The Killer," "Face/Off"), he played a bodyguard who's really, really scared of the color white! 

"Blackjack" was an epic action spectacular, when it wasn't a boring slog through the worlds of surrogate parenting and high fashion, but was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? 

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold look back at this unlikely failed experiment from two action demigods, to figure out what works, what's ridiculous, and whether it could EVER have actually worked as a television series!

Give it a listen!
