The Last Man – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 93
“Much like Harvey Keitel, I’ll be slumming and disinterested this whole way through.”
Doomsday prepper Daniel Barnes and apocalyptic lifestyle manual procurer Corky McDonnell prepare for the final storm by watching Hayden Christensen sleepwalk through The Last Man. A dreary, shapeless, grey-green, post-apocalyptic incel sex fantasy, The Last Man is a chore from start to finish.
Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss fake beard budgets, self-penned survival guides, not-Jake Busey and handbooks vs. mind-books.
Pieces (Jeffrey Marculescu)
Forbidden Power (Gunnar Pearson)

This week’s darer: Anonymous
Anonymous’ dare: “Awhile back I was curious what Hayden Christensen was up to since completely stunning everyone with such well-crafted acting in Star Wars that people actually preferred Jar Jar. And he’s been working! One 2019 item on his resume is The Last Man with Harvey Keitel. Saw it was on and fired it up. dot-dot-dot-dot-dot dot-dot. Calling this a turd would be an insult to turds. And, honestly, I thought of you two within the first ten minutes.”
IMDB synopsis: “Kurt, combat veteran with PTSD and hallucinations, fortifies his home and builds a secret underground shelter due to doomsday like weather changes. He gets a security job to pay for it and his boss’ cute daughter for company.”
