As a fairly obvious attempt to replicate the success of 1997's Men In Black, 1999's Wild Wild West underperformed pretty dramatically. But does it deserve its bad reputation? To find out, the manatees get academic in one of our most informative episodes ever, revealing secrets of the universe like the physics of how magnets work, why Harry Potter will never be as good as Lord of the Rings (no maps!), and the fact that chainmail was not a stunning new invention in 1869. It soon becomes fairly obvious that they don't remember much from history class, which works out nicely, because neither does the movie. It's, uh. It's really something, folks.
