Canceled Too Soon #159: Badlands 2005 (1988)

The year was 1988 and post-apocalyptic wastelands were EVERYWHERE. That's why ABC enlisted director George Miller* to direct a new pilot for a TV series called BADLANDS 2005, aka 2005 BADLANDS, about heroic road warriors saving the future from bad guys in supercharged muscle cars in the desert!

Lewis Smith and Sharon Stone co-star with Miguel Ferrer, playing a sometimes-animatronic robot, in an action-packed weekly thrill ride... that only lasted one week. Was "Badlands 2005"... CANCELED TOO SOON, or was there a good reason why this awesome-sounding TV series crashed and burned?

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold delve into this forgotten chapter of TV's sci-fi stunt spectacular past in an all-new episode.
