Trial by Pilot

Nobody has time to watch every new television series...which is why we judge them all based solely on the pilot! Tune in to hear our verdict.

Jul 7, 2020

We discuss the pilot to Warrior Nun, a new Netflix series based on the comics. We'll also take a thoughtful look at some deep philosophical questions. Can angels die? Why is Saturday CCD a thing? And why can't people properly light a Christmas tree?

We fire up the FTL Drive and jump back to 2004's Battlestar Galactica pilot! Our knowledgable guest convinces us to go back and watch the miniseries, talks a little about the 1978 series, and seems rather intrigued by the premise of an underwear-clad spaceship crew.

Holy moly! This week we discuss the pilot to 9-1-1: Lone Star, and I don't want to spoil anything, but the cold open is a security guard lighting his leftover burrito on fire and creating a raging inferno at the fertilizer factory that explodes like a nuclear bomb and kills everyone. Whoops, sorry.

We take a look at the pilot to the Netflix original The Politician, starring Ben Platt, ahead of the second season. Elizabeth interns for Conan, Bill talks about tone, and we consider watching 9-1-1 for a future episode.

We discuss the pilot to When They See Us, a 2019 Netflix miniseries based on the events of the 1989 Central Park jogger case and the Central Park Five. Please find anti-racism resources on our social media pages, educate yourself, and listen to black voices.
