The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy


The late 70s were a bad time for a lot of people, the economy was sluggish, jobs were scarce, cities showed the signs of serious urban decay, people needed a hero and Sylvester Stallone had just such hero in mind.

In this episode of The 602 Club hosts Matthew Rushing and Christy Morris talk about Rocky. We discuss our first bout in the ring, inspirations, Stallone is Rocky, the heart of the film, the production, the Pennino siblings, the music, Carl Weathers, Burgess Meredith, ratings and our recommendations.
