Storyline

Utilizing footage from various police pursuit features and traffic cameras, this mockumentary's sardonic host (Richard Belzer) demonstrates how automobiles and other evil steel monsters can capture and confine their unsuspecting and allegedly powerless operators while causing tremendous mayhem on our streets and highways. IE - it's not the irresponsible drunk drivers and criminals who do these things, it's their cars. The human occupants are simply victims. Written by Anonymous

like finding a diamond in the litterbox...
31 May 2004 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

...or at least a large Cubic Zirconia. I came across this on the schedule one night and tuned in because finding a cheesy title in the ABC lineup was such a rarity. ;-)

This being back in the days when Fox was becoming the megaloczar of disaster reality shows, I *was* intrigued by the idea of ABC spoofing them. What a find! Belzer's deadpan delivery of his very dry-witted commentary about cars turning on their owners kept me laughing through the entire show and reminded me of the best satires from the old National Lampoon radio show during his tenure with it.

Wonder if this gem is still viewable anywhere?
