This week we talk about the Men In Black franchise. It started with a dark comic series based on the urban legend (conspiracy?) about Men dressed in black exorcising demons and killing aliens. In 1997 the focus became the secret government organization tasked with protecting the Earth and managing our relationship with aliens and two agents - Agent J and Agent K. We talk about the enduring buddy science fiction comedy and action that Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith brought to the films and where it's going next.
