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

Great satire of a stupid genre
9 August 2005 | by (Galveston, Texas) – See all my reviews

Richard Belzer's deadpan approach (homage to Robert Stack) is perfect for this beautifully ridiculous satire of cop and weird animal quasi-documentaries. Consider it an American satire in the tradition of the classic British "The Rutles." OK, maybe that's a stretch but I saw it on probably its only broadcast and was in awe of its inspired absurdity. Belzer fused his great stand-up comedy skill with his excellent dramatic acting (as seen as Lt. Munch in Homicide:Life in the Streets) in being the ultra-serious host for this "reality" show. Houstonians will enjoy its use of an unfinished Houston freeway for some of the really bizarre car behavior. I feel honored to see the program as the odds are you will never see this as it is highly unlikely that it will ever be rebroadcast.
