%23139+-+Blindspotting%2C+The+Gloaming%2C+and+Intelligence
access_time4 months ago
James is away but somehow still manages to dominate the conversation before Terri, Boyd and guest co-host Beth Webb turn their attention to the Mare Of Easttown finale (spoilers – skip between 6:31 and 12:00 if you still haven’t caught up with one of the shows of the year). Then it’s back to James-spiration for a discussion of the biggest bell-ends in TV history, and what exactly makes a bell-end, before we review The Schwim in Sky One’s Intelligence season 2, Blindspotting on Starzplay and crime drama The Gloaming on Disney+.
%23138+-+Lisey%27s+Story%2C+Anne+Boleyn%2C+Time%2C+and+Feel+Good.+Featuring+Mae+Martin+and+Charlotte+Ritchie
access_time4 months ago
Charlotte Ritchie and Mae Martin join us on this week's show to talk about the second (and final) series of Feel Good on Netflix. Plus the Pilot team dissect last week's Friends Reunion special, before embarking on a bumper reviews segment covering Stephen King adaptation Lisey's Story on Apple, Jimmy McGovern's Time on BBC1, Channel 5's adaptation of the last weeks of Anne Boleyn, and Feel Good itself.
%23137+-+Solos%2C+Rebel%2C+and+Before+We+Die
access_time4 months ago
James’ re-watch of Game Of Thrones comes to a triumphant conclusion this week, so brace yourselves for an extended monologue/re-evaluation of that show as he drives Terri to the brink of catatonia with fresh takes on all things Season 8 (it ends at 18:43 if you feel your life ebbing away and/or want to avoid any GoT spoilers). And speaking of re-evaluations, we discuss how we view other classic shows differently over time as our perspectives on life change. Plus we finally get to see Amazon’s Solos, see if Star’s Rebel is worth a watch, and hit the beat with Lesley Sharp in Channel 4’s Before We Die — which is also a phrase uttered frequently during James’ aforementioned Thronesplanation.
%23136+-+The+Nevers%2C+Innocent%2C+and+We+Are+Lady+Parts.+Featuring+Katherine+Kelly
access_time4 months ago
Katherine Kelly is our guest on the podcast this week, telling us all about her role in series 2 of ITV's Innocent. Plus The Nevers finally arrives on Sky — bringing with it a welcome dose of Victorian superpowers — and Channel 4 unveils its all-new comedy centring around an all-girl, Muslim punk band with We Are Lady Parts. All that and Terri finally gets around to watching Succession, plus we reveal the secrets of how we balance our gargantuan watch lists with having personal lives (we don't).
%23135+-+The+Underground+Railroad%2C+Jupiter%E2%80%99s+Legacy%2C+Domina%2C+and+Motherland.+Featuring+Rafe+Spall+and+Esther+Smith
access_time4 months ago
Rafe Spall and Esther Smith drop by the show this week to talk to us about the second series of Trying. Plus we head back to imperial Rome for Domina on Sky Atlantic, explore an alternate history of the American South in Barry Jenkins’ adaptation of The Underground Railroad on Amazon, and finally reveal what we thought of Jupiter’s Legacy on Netflix. Plus we catch up with the latest seasons of Motherland and Inside Number Nine on the Beeb, and thrash out our picks of the most rewatchable series ever.
%23134+-+Mythic+Quest%2C+The+Pursuit+Of+Love%2C+and+Bloods.+Featuring+Josh+Duhamel
access_time5 months ago
Josh Duhamel joins us on the show this week to talk about Netflix’s new superhero series, Jupiter’s Legacy. Plus we head back to the 1940s with Emily Mortimer in the BBC’s The Pursuit Of Love, clap for a pair of hapless carers in Sky’s Bloods, and force Terri to watch the second season of Mythic Quest on Apple TV+. We also get into the Bafta TV nominations and explore which departing cast members most hurt the ratings of long-running TV shows.
%23133+-+This+Time+With+Alan+Partridge%2C+Shadow+And+Bone%2C+Viewpoint%2C+and+The+Mosquito+Coast
access_time5 months ago
*Note: This episode's interview with Noel Clarke has been removed in light of the recent accusations of sexual misconduct.*

On this week's show we get into Netflix's YA fantasy Shadow And Bone, Apple's adaptation of The Mosquito Coast, and the long-awaited second series of This Time With Alan Partridge, which may or may not provide Terri with an excuse to dust off her Martin Brennan impression. You have been warned.
%23132+-+Mare+Of+Easttown%2C+Starstruck%2C+and+Rush.+Featuring+Ron+D.+Moore
access_time5 months ago
Battlestar Galactica creator Ron D. Moore joins us on the show this week to talk For All Mankind. Plus we celebrate Kate Winslet’s triumphant return to the small screen in Mare Of Easttown on Sky, Rose Matafeo’s comedy genius in Starstruck on the BBC, and Fox UK’s ongoing commitment to resurrecting long-cancelled shows with Rush. Plus we talk about some of the best shows to cross international boundaries and get very excited about Line Of Duty (without dropping any spoilers).
%23131+-+Leonardo%2C+Too+Close%2C+and+Frank+Of+Ireland
access_time5 months ago
This week's show sees us joining Aidan Turner in Milan for Da Vinci drama Leonardo on Amazon, watching Emily Watson and Denise Gough go head-to-head in ITV's Too Close, and witnessing the Gleeson brothers raise merry hell in Dublin thanks to Channel 4's Frank Of Ireland. Plus we talk through the upcoming seasons of TV we're most excited about and Boyd explains why Line Of Duty is shaping up to be the Avengers Endgame of TV crime drama.
%23130+-+Them%2C+Wellington+Paranormal%2C+and+Intruder
access_time6 months ago
Assuming you're able to rouse yourself from a chocolate-induced coma this Easter Monday, we have a similarly sugar-fuelled episode of the podcast for you as we brace ourselves for supernatural horror/social realism thriller Them on Amazon, What We Do In The Shadows spinoff Wellington Paranormal on Sky, and burglary-gone-wrong thriller Intruder on Channel 5. There's also some serious discussion about *that* Unforgotten finale and while spoilers for the show are again quite clearly signposted, you can avoid the entire discussion by skipping everything between 11:56 and 19:38. Terri, James and Boyd's screaming row about appropriate spoiler etiquette on twitter, however, must be listened to in full.
%23129+-+The+Irregulars%2C+Keeping+Faith%2C+and+The+Syndicate
access_time6 months ago
On this week's show we take a trip back to Victorian London for Netflix's YA-themed Sherlock show The Irregulars, plus a jaunt to Wales for the final series of the BBC's Keeping Faith. And then, for reasons, we also review the *fourth* series of Lottery-winner drama The Syndicate, in which a group of dog groomers strike it rich. Plus we get very excited about the penultimate episode of Unforgotten (spoilers are clearly signposted but occur between 5:20 and 11:21), and explore some of the great shows that began their lives on the big screen.
%23128+-+The+Falcon+And+The+Winter+Soldier%2C+The+Mighty+Ducks%3A+Game+Changers%2C+and+Hausen
access_time6 months ago
If your week could be measurably improved by the sound of Terri quacking uncontrollably then you’re in luck, because there’s an abundance of duck sound effects to accompany this week’s reviews section as we tackle The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers on Disney+. When not replicating a mallard’s mating calls, we also share our reactions to nihilistic German horror series Hausen on Sky, and immerse ourselves in The Falcon And The Winter Soldier. Meanwhile, we take a look at instances where great shows go bad and the news section is hijacked by a lively debate about Jed Mercurio’s use of the C-bomb (actual C-bombs abound - you have been warned) and the depiction of violence on telly.
%23127+-+The+Flight+Attendant%2C+Calls%2C+and+Line+Of+Duty
access_time6 months ago
AC-12 is back in the house this week as we catch up with all the latest Ted Hastings developments in Line Of Duty series 6 on BBC1 (NOTE: contains no spoilers or plot discussion for this or previous seasons), plus we pick up the phone for Apple’s batty audio-only drama Calls, and finally get to go on a holiday (albeit a vicarious one) as we join Kaley Cuoco for jet-setting murder mystery The Flight Attendant on Sky. All that and Terri disappears down an Unforgotten rabbit hole and we take a trip down memory lane to the shows we loved back when we were knee-high to a grasshopper.
126+-+Grace%2C+neXt%2C+and+Love+In+The+Time+Of+Corona
access_time7 months ago
James and Terri made a Faustian pact in advance of this week’s show, which leads to a rather unexpected instalment of What We’ve Been Watching. Then we then try to work out what on Earth is going on with BBC Three, how the Golden Globes ceremony was one of the best things on telly last week, and which teen shows float each member of the team’s respective boats. Plus we find ourselves looking for love in lockdown via Star’s Love In The Time Of Corona, on the trail of a rogue AI in Star’s curiously capitalised neXt, and on the trail of a missing person in ITV’s surname-based cop thriller, Grace.
%23125+-+Your+Honor%2C+Dollface%2C+and+The+Walking+Dead
access_time7 months ago
On this week's show we find ourselves in the familiar scenario of watching a law abiding Bryan Cranston abandon his regular life for one of crime in Sky’s Your Honor. Plus James makes a valiant stand against Terri and Boyd when the team review Star's new comedy, Dollface, and Terri is forced to watch the new bonus episodes of The Walking Dead, despite only ever having seen one episode in her life.

Not only that but the team also reveal their favourite telly picks from the dark days before the current era of Peak TV, and James insists on inflicting his latest rewatch obsession on everyone, whether they want him to or not.
%23124+-+Big+Sky%2C+Unforgotten%2C+and+Love+Victor
access_time7 months ago
Star launches on Disney+ this week and we sift through the launch releases on that service, which involves finding out what Lagertha the shieldmaiden is up to post-Vikings in Big Sky, and discovering if Love Simon’s big screen magic can survive the transition to the small screen in Love Victor. Plus, we dig up another cold case with Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar in series 4 of ITV’s Unforgotten, get into a big old discussion about which books need adapting for TV ASAP, and Terri simply cannot resist talking about *that* ending in Behind Her Eyes — but don't worry, the spoilers are clearly signposted and you can skip the whole discussion by avoiding everything between 09:13 and 16:56.
%23123+-+Behind+Her+Eyes%2C+Bloodlands%2C+and+For+All+Mankind
access_time7 months ago
Finger-wagging abounds on this week's show as we manage to fall into an argument/therapy-session over why each of us are the way we are with regard to telly viewing habits, and why James has never watched a documentary series all the way through. We also find the time to watch the new Jed Mercurio-produced James Nesbitt thriller, Bloodlands, immerse ourselves in the batshit world of Netflix's Behind Her Eyes, and finally give For All Mankind a proper chance when we get mooned by that show's second season.
The+West+Wing+Spoiler+Special%2C+featuring+Aaron+Sorkin
access_time7 months ago
We've been threatening to do it for weeks and now we've finally delivered. Here, for your listening pleasure, is a Pilot TV spoiler special dedicated to the greatest TV show ever made: The West Wing. To celebrate the fact that Terri binged the entire show over the past month, and in recognition of the fact that James needs absolutely no excuse to bang on about it until people beg him to stop, we bring you a mammoth recording where the team thrash over the themes, the cast, the major plot points and much, much more. Plus, you can enjoy James' interview with the man who started the whole thing: West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin. Enjoy!
%23122+-+Soulmates%2C+Can%27t+Get+You+Out+Of+My+Head%2C+and+The+Vanishing+At+the+Cecil+Hotel
access_time7 months ago
On this week's show we're looking for true love in Amazon Prime's new anthology drama, Soulmates, investigating a true crime mystery in The Vanishing At the Cecil Hotel on Netflix, and taking a look at Adam Curtis' mind-bending new iPlayer series, Can’t Get You Out Of My Head. Plus Terri goes off on a venomous diatribe agains the Golden Globe nominations and we somehow end up in a protracted musing about the state of modern telly and the evolution of viewing habits. Because why the hell not?
%23121+-+ZeroZeroZero%2C+Ramy%2C+and+The+Drowning
access_time8 months ago
On the show this week we take a look Andrea Riseborough and Gabriel Byrne's drug-smuggling thriller ZeroZeroZero on Sky Atlantic, track down a missing person in The Drowning on Channel 5, and check out Channel 4's latest comedy, Ramy, which only people with StarzPlay will have already seen. Plus Terri explains why, despite all evidence to the contrary, she *never* watches rubbish telly and we bear witness to the 'triumphant' return of James' guitar.
%23120+-+Marcella%2C+Resident+Alien%2C+and+Damien.+Featuring+Anna+Friel
access_time8 months ago
Anna Friel joins us on this week's show to talk about the third season of Marcella, which makes its belated UK debut on ITV this week. Plus Terri goes inexplicably nuts for demented Sky comedy Resident Alien, and we discover that the devil's in the details (which in this case include having been cancelled nearly half a decade ago) for Fox UK's Damien.
%23119+-+WandaVision%2C+It%27s+A+Sin%2C+and+Star+Trek%3A+Lower+Decks.+With+guest+host+Russell+T.+Davies
access_time8 months ago
On this week's show telly legend and Doctor Who pioneer Russell T. Davies joins us as guest host when we take a trip back to the 1950s for Marvel/I Love Lucy hybrid show WandaVision, and force Terri to sit through some Star Trek animation in Lower Decks. We also get a chance to delve deep into Russell's new series, It's A Sin, and talk about some of the shows we're most looking forward to in 2021.
%23+118+-+Servant%2C+The+Pembrokeshire+Murders%2C+Briarpatch%2C+and+Finding+Alice
access_time8 months ago
On this week's show we’re joining Luke Evans in the hunt for a Welsh serial killer in ITV’s The Pembrokeshire Murders, finding out how baby Jericho’s holding up in Season 2 of Servant on Apple TV+, and watching Rosario Dawson unravel a mystery on Alibi as Briarpatch makes its belated debut on UK screens. Plus we tumble down the stairs with Finding Alice, and Beth Webb joins us as we explore Boyd's favourite narrative device and investigate the use of flashbacks.
%23117+-+The+Stand%2C+Cobra+Kai%2C+and+A+Discovery+Of+Witches
access_time9 months ago
Happy New Year to you all! And what better way to celebrate than to hear Terri once again concede that a show James has banged on about endlessly is actually rather good. Which one? You’ll have to wait and see. We also take a look at the new adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand on Starzplay, head back to Elizabethan times for Season 2 of A Discovery Of Witches on Sky, and dive headfirst into Season 3 of Netflix’s Cobra Kai.
Cobra+Kai+Special%2C+Featuring+Ralph+Macchio+%26+William+Zabka
access_time9 months ago
You didn't think we'd leave you all Christmas with no Pilot TV podcast did you? With the long-awaited Season 3 of Cobra Kai mere days away, we bring you this special episode dedicated to the show, featuring none other than Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence themselves: Ralph Macho and William Zabka. The stars of the show chat the way of the fist with James, discuss how this most unlikely of reunions became the biggest show on streaming, and what we can expect going forward.

Strike first. Strike hard. No mercy!
%23116+-+Black+Narcissus%2C+The+Serpent%2C+and+Motherland+Christmas+Special.+Featuring+Nicola+Coughlan
access_time9 months ago
Derry Girl Nicola Coughlan joins us on this the final regular Pilot podcast of 2020 to talk about sexy bodice-ripper Bridgerton. Meanwhile, the rest of the show comes to you in association with (non warrior) nuns in the Himalayas thanks to the BBC's Black Narcissus, a seventies serial killer in The Serpent, and assorted secret Santa shenanigans in the brilliantly funny Motherland Christmas special. Plus Boyd breaks out his magic listings book to talk us through all the TV highlights over the Christmas break and we talk though all our favourite festive episodes. See you in 2021!
%23115+-+The+Wilds%2C+Euphoria%2C+and+The+Expanse
access_time9 months ago
The Expanse returns this week, much to Terri and Boyd's bemusement - but don't worry, James is on hand to Beltersplain everything as needed. We also dive into Amazon's new pseudo-Lost show, The Wilds, and embrace a little festive cheer (kind of) with the Euphoria Christmas special. All that and a rather unexpected discussion of late stage capitalism, some thoughts on additions to established ensemble casts, and Terri inadvertently trigger's the Pilot TV podcast's new security system, much to her chagrin.
Review+Of+The+Year+2020
access_time10 months ago
2020 has been quite a year. A global pandemic, political upheaval and most of us being forced to spend large chunks of it under virtual house arrest. However, amidst the crises and carnage we've been treated to a genuinely outstanding year for television and that's what this episode is all about. James, Terri and Boyd run through their takes on 2020 and count down Pilot's definitive list of the Top 20 shows of the year. Want to know what essential shows you've missed over the past 12 months? Or what you absolutely must add to your watch list over Christmas? Well you're in luck, so strap in, get a notepad handy and feast your ears on Pilot TV's recap of the year in television.
%23114+-+Raised+By+Wolves%2C+Tin+Star%2C+and+Power+Book+II%3A+Ghosts
access_time10 months ago
It's the moment you've all been waiting for: we make Terri sit through HBO's near-impenetrable hard sci-fi series Raised By Wolves (not to be confused with Caitlin Moran's Wolverhampton-set comedy of the same name, which she would have enjoyed far more). Plus we attempt to find out why Tim Roth is heading back to Liverpool for season 3 of Tin Star and try to make sense out of the bafflingly-titled Power Book II: Ghost. Plus we talk about our most off-brand TV opinions and Terri and Boyd succeed in torturing James with a blow-by-blow recap of the Bake-Off finale.
%23113+-+For+Life%2C+Trickster%2C+and+The+Queen%27s+Gambit
access_time10 months ago
We resisted for weeks but we've finally relented and agreed to give Netflix's The Queen's Gambit the full review treatment it deserves. Plus we head behind bars for Nicholas Pinnock's E4 courtroom/prison drama For Life and bamboozle Terri with SyFy's bizarro supernatural YA miniseries Trickster. In addition, James proselytises about Counterpart, Terri and Boyd rhapsodise about a Welsh Castle, The Crown gets explained for James' mum and we recommend some of our favourite non UK/US shows for your international enjoyment.
%23112+-+The+Good+Lord+Bird%2C+Lovers+Rock%2C+and+We+Are+Who+We+Are
access_time10 months ago
Pilot TV's bellend-in-chief has taken a rare holiday this week leaving Terri in the hot seat and welcoming Amon Warmann onto the team as they watch Ethan Hawke gives it his all in abolitionist drama The Good Lord Bird on Sky Atlantic; Steve McQueen's second instalment in Small Axe, Lovers Rock, which comes to BBC1; and a pair of teenagers come of age on a US military base in Luca Guadagnino's We Are Who We Are on BBC Three. All that and Pilot TV is graced with its first musical review, Boyd utters the phrase, "Layers of mousse," and Terri decides to Banshee a show we have previously reviewed on this very podcast, throwing all the rules completely out the window.
%23111+-+The+Crown%2C+Industry%2C+and+Small+Axe
access_time11 months ago
It's time to get down with The Crown on this week's show as we take in the uncanny glory that is Gillian Anderson's superlative Margaret Thatcher. Plus we get a look inside the cut-throat world of financial services in BBC2's Industry (it does *not* pass the bellend test), and catch a selection of films in Steve McQueen's Small Axe on BBC1, which may or may not constitute a TV series in the strictest sense but is so good that it really doesn't matter.
%23110+-+The+Mandalorian%2C+The+Vow%2C+and+His+Dark+Materials
access_time11 months ago
Baby Yoda returns this week as we're finally able to review The Mandalorian Season 2 on Disney+. We also catch up with Lyra and Pantalaimon in the second series of the BBC's His Dark Materials adaptation AND delve into the sordid inner workings of sex cult NXIVM in Sky Documentaries' The Vow. All that and you get to hear Terri's latest adventures in The West Wing to properly prepare you for tomorrow's US election.
%23109+-+The+Undoing%2C+Truth+Seekers%2C+and+The+Sister.+Featuring+Russell+Tovey.
access_time11 months ago
Russell Tovey makes his triumphant return to the podcast this week, taking about Neil Cross' new show, The Sister on ITV. Plus we find out if Nick Frost is afraid of ghosts in Amazon's Truth Seekers and get an eyeful of Sky's The Undoing, which features Hugh Grant, Nicole Kidman and a surprising amount of full frontal nudity. Plus Terri updates us on her West Wing progress and the team has an alternate universe conversation about TV castings that could have been.
%23108+-+Star+Trek%3A+Discovery%2C+Out+Of+Her+Mind%2C+and+Twenties.+Featuring+Nick+Frost.
access_time11 months ago
It's a momentous episode this week as, after 107 episodes of James banging on about it, Terri finally watched The West Wing. What's more, she reviews the show for us at the top of this week's show (well, the episodes she's seen, anyway). That alone should be more than enough to warrant a download, but there's more! Nick Frost drops by the pod to talk about his new show, Truth Seekers, plus we review Season 3 of Star Trek: Discovery, get a glimpse inside Sara Pascoe's brain in the bonkers Out Of Her Mind, and a peek inside Lena Waithe's in her semi-autobiographical comedy Twenties.
%23107+-+The+Right+Stuff%2C+Roadkill%2C+and+Warrior
access_time11 months ago
James discovers the joy of Cobra Kai this week, having finally accepted Netflix's glorious Karate Kid spinoff series into his heart, meanwhile Terri anoints herself 'the reality sponge' and Boyd maintains that he still hasn't watched the Little Mix reality show. In more serious business, though, we finally get to talk about The Right Stuff on Disney+, not to mention Hugh Laurie's political shenanigans in the BBC's Roadkill, and the glorious return of Warrior on Sky. Plus there's a minor free-for-all as we debate the merits of week-by-week vs bingeable TV shows.
%23106+-+The+Haunting+Of+Bly+Manor%2C+The+Walking+Dead%3A+World+Beyond%2C+and+Adult+Material
access_time12 months ago
Zombies! Ghosts! Porn stars! We've got a little something for everyone on this week's show as we tackle The Walking Dead: World Beyond, Netflix's The Haunting Of Bly Manor, and Channel 4's Adult Material. Plus a little more musing on Netflix's cancellation formula (less boring than it sounds!) and some disagreement as to how many syllables are in the name Conan.
%23105+-+Brave+New+World%2C+Life%2C+and+The+Comey+Rule
access_time12 months ago
It's a Brave New World this week as we immerse ourselves in the new adaptation of Aldous Huxley's dystopian sci-fi novel, plus we get a Life with the BBC's new Doctor Foster Spinoff, and strap in for three hours of Trump getting elected in the HBO adaptation of former FBI director James Comey's memoir, The Comey Rule.
%23104+-+Utopia%2C+Ghosts%2C+and+Evil
access_time12 months ago
Gillian Flynn's long-awaited remake of Dennis Kelly's Utopia lands with us this week, along with the second series of the Horrible History crew's spirited comedy, Ghosts. Plus Terri gets to geek out about Mike Coulter-starring supernatural procedural Evil, and Boyd and Terri's ongoing mission to make James like Doctor Who steps up a notch as finally watches Blink from series 3.
%23103+-+The+Third+Day%2C+Ratched%2C+Criminal%2C+and+Des
access_time1 year ago
Dennis Kelly joins us on the show this week to talk about his audacious new multi-part drama (with a live event, no less) The Third Day, plus we get back into the interrogation room for Season 2 of Netflix's Criminal, strap in for the most Ryan Murphy show of all time with Ratched, and witness David Tennant at his most terrifying in ITV's Des. And that's not all, because we also take a look back at TV's most heart-warming (and teeth-gnashingly frustrating) slow-burn romances and get borderline hysterical in a discussion about time travel.
%23102+-+High+Fidelity%2C+The+Duchess%2C+Awkwafina+Is+Nora+From+Queens%2C+and+The+Singapore+Grip.+Featuring+David+Morrissey
access_time1 year ago
David Morrissey is our guest on this week's show, talking about his new series, The Singapore Grip, which we also review. What's more, after an eternity's wait, Hulu's High Fidelity finally arrives on British screens, much to our delight, while Netflix's The Duchess pits Katherine Ryan against modern life and Awkwafina gets her own slacker comedy in the rather confusingly titled Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens. Plus Terri finally gets a chance to share her top 5 shows - no prizes for guessing number one.
%23101+-+Young+Wallander%2C+Away%2C+and+Two+Weeks+To+Live
access_time1 year ago
Beth is back and mercifully audible this week as we dive into Netflix's Young Wallander, take a trip to Mars with Hillary Swank in Away, and see Maisie Williams turn into (another) pint-sized assassin in Sky's hitgirl comedy, Two Weeks To Live. Plus we unearth some classic British shows that might appeal to our American listeners and there's a perhaps a brief mention of Battlestar Galactica coming to iPlayer.
%23100+-+The+Boys%2C+Strike%2C+and+I+Hate+Suzie.+With+guest+host+Tom+Ellis
access_time1 year ago
Lucifer himself, Mr Tom Ellis, joins us as guest host for our 100th episode! We chat about everything from playing the lord of hell to his love for Battlestar Galactica, as well as running down each of our top five TV shows of all time. Plus we review the latest series of Strike, watch Billie Piper's life implode in I Hate Suzie and get a head start on the long-awaited second season of Amazon's The Boys. All that and Tom even breaks out his guitar. What's not to love?
%2399+-+Lovecraft+Country%2C+Teenage+Bounty+Hunters%2C+and+Famalam
access_time1 year ago
James is off this week so in comes Beth Webb who delights us with her axe wielding (she plays guitar), as we review the monstrously exciting Lovecraft Country, the edgy Teen Bounty Hunters on Netflix and BBC3’s comedy sketch show Famalam. We also take the opportunity to reboot some classic sitcoms as TV dramas.
%2398+-+Ted+Lasso%2C+Dirty+John%2C+and+Mandy
access_time1 year ago
We're returning to Dirty John this week with a second series of that anthology show, which no longer features anyone named John, and returning to The First Team (kind of) in Apple's similarly-themed football comedy, Ted Lasso. Plus we take in some bite-sized comedy in Diane Morgan's Mandy and it all kicks off over this year's TV BAFTAs, in which Fleabag and Derry Girls were defeated by Stath Lets Flats.
%2397+-+The+Deceived%2C+Harlots%2C+and+Little+Birds.+Featuring+Lisa+McGee
access_time1 year ago
Get those headphones on and send the kids to bed for this special illicit sex-themed episode of the Pilot TV podcast where we not only visit Samantha Morton's house of ill-repute in Harlots and delve into the adaptation of Anaïs Nin's Little Birds, but see an affair take a distinctly supernatural turn in Lisa McGee's The Deceived as well. And speaking of The Deceived, Lisa herself is a guest on this week's show, dropping by to talk us through her Donegal-set psychological thriller and what we can expect from the next series of Derry Girls.
%2396+-+The+Umbrella+Academy%2C+Prodigal+Son%2C+Anthony%2C+and+Muppets+Now
access_time1 year ago
It's umbrellas at the ready this week as we dive headfirst into Season 2 of Netflix's batty superhero series, The Umbrella Academy. And speaking of demented television concepts, serial killer procedural Prodigal son (which stars The Walking Dead's Tom 'Jesus' Payne and Michael Shane as a father-and-son sociopathic crime-solving duo) certainly fits the bill. Elsewhere, we tackle Jimmy McGovern's harrowing one-off drama, Anthony, and the rather less serious return of Kermit and the gang in Muppets Now.
%2395+-+Cursed%2C+A+Suitable+Boy%2C+and+Fort+Salem
access_time1 year ago
We're all about the witches this week as we unearth our belated review of Netflix's Arthurian epic, Cursed, and then sign up for Wiccan boot camp and the arrival of BBC3's army witch series, Fort Salem. Plus we're heading off to post-partition India for the adaptation of Vikram Seth's mammoth tome, A Suitable Boy. All the and a lot more discussion of fingering than you'll generally find on an average episode of the Pilot podcast, but you can all blame Terri for that.

We are cursed by embargoes this week as Netflix's latest show, Cursed, demands our lips stay sealed for another week, however we are able to talk about David Simon and Ed Burns' new show, The Plot Against America, and discover Condor, a show we didn't know existed until season 2 dropped in our laps. All that plus lots of discussion around restaurant scenes and Boyd's recollections of having to talk to famouses at after parties.

It's the episode you've all been waiting for - the show in which we *finally* review Warrior Nun, AKA the greatest TV show ever made. We also delve into the world of Mississippi strip clubs in P-Valley, join Cate Blanchett in some seventies political turmoil in Mrs America, and try to hit the big time with Apple's Little Voice. All that and we run through the 20 best TV shows of the year so far and find out what James has learned on the guitar this week.
