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.

We take a look at the pilot to Brave New World, an NBC Peacock original based on the 1932 dystopian sci-fi novel. We also talk about Quibi's continued failure and Elizabeth approaches a random passerby.

We invite a real, live baby-sitter to help us discuss the pilot to the new Netflix series based on The Baby-Sitters Club books. We briefly revisit Warrior Nun, Bill haggles on a price for baby-sitting, and no, we haven't seen Hamilton yet.

Coming to you live from the way way back of the station wagon, it's time for another recap episode! We take a look at our last batch of pilots, play a little canceled/renewed, and discuss why anthology series usually stink. We also endlessly praise and then endlessly criticize Community, and Bill swoons over Dark (again).


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.
