David, John and Lisa flash our fists and take a Dacia back to 1980's Romania as we cover Comrade Detective!

Channing Tatum and Jon Ronson present the show as if it were an actual influential Romanian television show from the 1980s. Produced by the Romanian communist government it served as Communist propaganda. Lost over the years, producers recently found surviving copies of the episodes and wiith the help of the fictional Romanian Film Preservation Society they have restored the episodes and dubbed them into English.

For all of its memorable gadgets, Back to the Future Part II's future is bleak, pessimistic, and familiar. Even more familiar is the sight of a megalomaniac throwing around his abusive power from his golden tower. We looked at how Back to the Future not only predicted Trump's presidency but also made us forget that we could do any better.
