Test-Driving Hot Wheels: Ultimate Challenge

Vroom! Vroom! Out of my way! I'm a Hot Wheels motorist!

Yet another square peg of childhood-toy IP, Hot Wheels, gets jammed into the round hole of competition-show summer programming…how does this one drive? Ask EHG reviews some more origin stories, goes on scripted NextDoor, and recommends summer reading. We discuss the Not Quite Winners And Losers, and then our Extra Credit fires up a time machine for Don Draper and the Sterling Cooper gang. Spoilers aho, fun ahoy!
