Brian & Cargill wrap Octoburt with a special double feature of Burt Reynolds' hicksploitation classics: White Lightning & Gator. 

While one is clearly superior and the other a cartoon, binging both these moonshine-running drive-in flicks is as thrilling as a big bowl of shaky pudding! The guys discuss Hal Needham's stunts, the head cannon that connects Gator to The Longest Yard, and how Steven Spielberg almost made a very different choice for his first feature.

Sit a spell, grab a jug, and get ready to bask in the distilled machismo of Gator McKlusky!
