Apparently we have a long way to go before we exhaust every comedic permutation of Hal 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Strike.TV’s Daryl from OnCar is the latest example. Daryl mashes Voice Gps, Knight Rider, the aforementioned Hal and an ample dash of Stephen King’s Christine into a volatile in-car cocktail, the devil on your driver’s side shoulder. Daryl’s friend-turned-victim is Ted, the mini-van driving, generic white-collar Joe just trying to lead a normal, if mildly adulterous, life along with his wife Judy (the perfectly cast Michele Scarabelli, who appropriately enough, had a part in the Leslie Neilsen bomb 2001: A Space Travesty). Daryl is the in-car and phone accessible voice-assistance product that helps Ted back into the van he’s locked himself out of, but from there it’s mostly downhill, questioning his failure to signal, his failure to return a shopping cart, and growingly severe infractions. »
