This is the best thing ever made
25 May 1999 | by (Orebro,Sweden) – See all my reviews

"Hooo, easy boy", naive Josh says to his wild stallion and Zeb just shakes his head and smiles. "It got to be a man of you sometimes too Josh" he says and looks at the sky.

200 year old Zeb wrestles bandits and conquers young woman, dressed in his old,stinky leatherdress. He hardly can walk but no mission is too hard for this superhero. Young luke tries to step in Zebs footsteps but he is never even close.

This production is the best I've ever seen, I advise you to follow it as soon as you can.
