Ep. 76: The Bees
We continue #disastuary with 1978’s THE BEES, a movie that explores the imminent threat of Africanized bees smuggled into the United States by Big Honey and the wacky world of the scientists that study them.   While most movies are made to appeal to specific audiences, we’re not sure who this movie was made for.  Was it made for Bee scientists?  Was it made for disaster movie fans?  Was it made for environmentalists?  Was it made for people who want to enjoy the peace and quiet of enjoying a donut in a public restroom?  We aren’t sure. We also aren’t sure of the proper pronunciation of the word, “swarm”.  Please help.
