Adkins Adjacent Bonus Episode-Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story
One of the things that makes going on a deep dive through Adkins filmography fun is getting to see the absolutely ridiculous amount of talent he’s gotten to work with throughout his career.  So that got me thinking, it would be fun to highlight new projects from some of those people.  So where new things involving co-stars or directors he’s worked with come up, I’ll try to do a quick review or reaction and release it as a bonus mini-episode. Let’s call them Adkins Adjacent bonus episodes. That takes us to the subject of this first bonus episode: Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story, released video on demand on September 22, 2020.  How is this Adkins adjacent?  Well one of the focal points of the movie, and one of the hosts essentially, is Adkins' Accident Man co-star, the absolutely incredible Amy Johnston, and anything I can do to bring more attention to her, I am going to do.  So this doc was a no-brainer for me.
