Heat Vision & Jack

Ever heard of a little show called Heat Vision and Jack? Me neither. That's because it got cancelled back in '99 before it even hit the airwaves. The pilot is online however, and it stars Jack Black as an astronaut who got too close to the sun and became super-smart, and his friend Heat Vision the talking motorcycle (voiced by Owen Wilson), who used to be his unemployed roommate until actor Ron Silver (who also happens to be a hit man for NASA) shot him with an experimental ray gun that fused him with his motorcycle while Ron was trying to chase down Jack because the government wants to remove his brain.
Yeah... I can guess why it got cancelled. Ben Stiller produced and directed the show, and Rob Schrab and Dan Harmon (the guy who's now in charge of Acceptable.tv) wrote it. It's worth a few laughs.
