When a Superbowl ad announces that a new Tv show pilot is available for only 24 hours you know that the episode one podcast will be there.

We'll take a second look in March when the show officially premieres, but we do a quick check in on the pilot for Hanna, then get into the 77th episode business. Recaps of what we've watched since the 66th, including the fall premieres we kept watching or quit.

Also Chris Loves the Masked Singer and tries to talk Steve into it.

We whole heartedly welcome the age of the Groundhog day as a TV show trope. Russian Doll was a lot of fun and we want more dammit! Feauring Natasha Lyonne (American Pie, Orange Is The New Black) and co created by Amy Poehler. Steve and Chris take a look ( a week or two late) at the newest Netflix sensation!

Also we pitch our own Groundhog day based shows, and crossovers!

A first for the episode one podcast, a show Chris and Steve saw taped! Yes, it's time for our 3rd wrestling show, 4th if you count GLOW. And speaking of GLOW it's Women of Wrestling! Founded in 2000 by the same guy who founded GLOw it's women's wrestling empowered!

And with our guest Emily Praat (@emilyofpratt) we dive deep and discuss the new WOW on AXS TV and dig into the original TV premiere back in 2000. What's different, what's the same, how it's improved. A lot of what works and what doesn't.

Plus Emily makes her pitch for Elon Musk to invest in a new wrestling sensation right up his alley!

All this plus crossover son the Episode One Podcast!

It really happened. They really remade Roswell. One of Chris's favorite shows of all time. Does Roswell New Mexico live up to the legacy of the original? Does the original live up to the memories? Also what about Tess?

Steve weighs in as someone completely fresh to the series, and we talk about the politics injected into the reboot. Do they work? Distract?

And as always 30 second pitches and crossovers.
