In this episode of the show, we are starting our February series on sequels to Best Picture winners by talking about They Call Me MISTER Tibbs!, a sequel to the 1967 In the Heat of the Night. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us wonder why and how this movie came together in the first place, whether Virgil Tibbs is enough of a Columbo to sustain a franchise, if the people who made this movie knew what made the original great in the first place and more. We also opine over Tibbs’ parenting skills, his pillow talk and whether prestige movies deserve sequels in the first place.
Hosts: Jakub Flasz & Randy Burrows
