Drop the Pilot! “Evel Knievel pilot”

Sam Elliot as Evil KnievelJimmy B is back, and this time we’re having a look at the pilot for the 1974 action/mystery/comedy(?) Evel Knievel, named for the world’s greatest motorcycle jump daredevil, Evel Knievel. He’s played here by the fine and mustacheless Sam Elliot, and oh my god does he look like Scot Bakula. Wow. It’s uncanny. Good theme song. Nothing else of substance.

My Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle… Awesome fun.
