      Retired CIA Black-Ops hit man James Jackson Dial is living his life in seclusion on his ranch in Montana when he is offered the chance to redeem himself by his former employer, Jeremy Collins. A few years ago, Dial was seconds away from taking down notorious terrorist cell leader Ali Mahmoud Jahar when when his carelessness allowed Jahar to escape, marking his mission as a failure. Now, Collins wants Dial to eliminate Jahar, who has been captured and is now in the custody of the police in London, England. Provided with a safe house, passports, and an assistant named Terry Winchell, Dial is off to London to finish what he started years ago. Disguised as a priest, Dial gets in position in a church's bell tower across the street from the building that Jahar is being brought into. When Jahar is brought out of his transport truck, his head is covered by a jacket, leaving Dial without a clean shot. Not wanting to fail again, Dial patiently waits for his opportunity. Moments later, Dial fatally shoots Jahar in the head. Because of a delay caused by a pair of cops, Winchell is late bringing the getaway car, and that brings attention to them fleeing the scene. After numerous attempts to stop the car, the police open fire, killing Winchell. The car, now out of control, comes to crashing stop, injuring Dial. On the run and bleeding profusely, Dial makes his way to the safe house, where he meets curious 12-year-old neighbor Emily Day, who lives with her grandmother. Emily helps Dial stop the bleeding. Even though Jahar was eliminated, the mission was a failure to Collins because Dial was observed fleeing the scene on a security camera. In the USA, Collins is being investigated for running a CIA Hit Squad, and if word gets back about Dial and the death of, Collins will be exposed. Stopping at nothing to keep his name clean, Collins frames Dial for the murder of Chief Inspector Andrew Windsor. Now a wanted man by Collins and the British police, Dial must do whatever it takes to prove his innocence, knowing that Inspector Annette Ballard, Windsor's vengeful daughter, is after him as well.

It's a version of his Werewolves and Lollipops show, second solo album (also available on CD), and he ranges from talking about Kentucky Fried Chicken's famous bowls to his work as television writer (and how he has to come up with euphemisms for things inappropriate to talk about on television that end up being worse than what they're representing).

            Bob Honcho gives the Film Crew the lowly task of providing a commentary track for Walk the Angry Beach (1968), aka Hollywood After Dark, a caper film that makes periodic stops for long scenes of women doing ghastly stripping routines. The female lead is, of all people, Rue McClanahan from "The Golden Girls" (1985). And, yes, she strips. Dark, depressing and dull are the three d-words that best describe this dumb, dismal and dreary (those are the three others) piece of dreck (lucky seven). During the break, Bill Corbett calls a lunch meeting to brainstorm ways of exploiting "core competencies." At the end, the Film Crew is inspired to make a video of Bill getting killed with cotton candy. Written by J. Spurlin
