The Episode One Podcast

The Episode One Podcast talks about a different Pilot, or first episode of a Television show in each episode. We discuss the show from the perspective of a fan and a writer. We then unfairly judge the rest of the series based solely on it's pilot.

What better way to celebrate the finale of Sense8 than to go back to the beginning.

Is the show more confusing than Twin Peaks? How does the combination of the Wachowskis and J Michael Stracynzski fare? Is there enough here to get us to binge the complete series now that it's finished?

Also what is the deal with Daryl Hannah and Sayid? Also we discuss whether pornhub original programming can be a thing.

It's finally happened. The Marvel Universe has collided with the Freeform cinematic universe.

Can Bella Thorne defeat Thanos? Will the Fosters adopt Black Widow? Can Siren be a backdoor pilot for the Namor TV Series (Is Namor Mutant or not? c'mon people!) Can Grownish help the runaways? (I smell crossover episode)

Until we get the answers to these questions and more, Steve and Chris discuss the long awaited Cloak and Dagger. What narrative trick did it get us with, what MCU shout out excited us the most, and does the series work?

All this plus crossovers and 30 second pitches!

A little late to the party, Chris and Steve watch Killing Steve... I mean Eve, Killing Eve, definitely NOT Killing Steve...

Does it live up to the hype? Was it worth losing Sandra Oh from Gray's Anatomy? Wait Gray's Anatomy is still on?

And, as always, Crossovers and 30 second pitches!

Join Chris and Steve as we watch 3 different Arrested Development Episode Ones (A new Record!) We go back and re-watch the pilot that started it all. We watch season 4's episode one again for the first time with Arrested Development Season 4 Fateful Consequences. And we check in on the Bluths latest development with season 5.

How has the show, and the fandom progressed over the years? Does the pilot still hold up? What themes come into play recurringly throughout the series?

And as always, crossovers and 30 second pitches!
