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.

Christina Applegate? Linda Cardellini? Dead Husbands? sign us up!

A fun show, as this time we have a unlikeable yet likeable antagonist who's not fully the antagonist? And while fun, it's a show about grief, processing grief, living with grief and recovering from grief. But at it's heart it's still a comedy.

We had a lot of fun talking about this show, and recorded it directly after watching.

And as always, 30 second pitches and crossovers!

Directed by and cameo-ing George Clooney, the most famous novel a lot of people have never read comes to Hulu as a mini-series.

We tried for a long time to come up with a good Catch-22 for our intro and we failed. We also couldn't think of one for the show notes. But some great discussion of how the current generation of writers/creatives that came up through the persian gulf/Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts differ from the WW II and Vietnam eras of the previous generations. We also talk about whether the show "works" on screen versus print.

We also do crossovers and 30 second pitches. Join us!

This time Steve and Chris finally catch up on some anthology shows from April. 

The reboot of the Twilight Zone on CBS All-Access, unfortunately it's pilots is no longer available for free on youtube, but you can catch a free trial for CBS All-Access basically anywhere. And what "pilot" did Steve and Chris get for Love Death and Robots? And does it tell you anything about our hosts?

All this plus Anthology 30 second pitches, and crossovers!
