To celebrate the long... looong. looooong awaited release of Wonder Woman 1984, Steve and Chris are joined by return guest Jeane Wong (@jeanedevivr). to go back and watch a show that never aired. David E. Kelley's take on Wonder Woman.

Starring Adrienne Palicki, fresh off Friday Night Lights, a young helmetless Pedro Pascak, and an amazing villainous turn by Elizabeth Hurley. David E Kelley's Wonder Woman is a flawed pilot with some glimmers of promise.

Join us as we discuss what went wrong, what network notes likely derailed the project, and what one of Jeane's dream projects is.

Merry Christmas, we bring you the gift of more Wonder Woman!

Join us for our Holiday Special.

This year we take a look at Netflix's mini-series: Dash and Lily. Based off the Book from the creators of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (One of Chris's favorite movies), Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. The show is just joyful, fun and exciting.

We teased that the show seemed to be a teenage Serendipity, but it's got more layers.

We also discuss few other holiday watches (A very nutty christmas, princess switch, and the lego star wars holiday special)

Plus we do Crossovers and 30 second pitches!

We're so excited... well you know the joke. It's finally here, it was delayed by the Pandemic, we hoped to see the pilot at Peacock live in March, was it worth the wait? And the far more important question for NBC universal.. is it worth subscribing to Peackock for?

Steve and Chris also take a quick look at the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion special on HBO Max and speculate, what would Will Smith be without the Fresh Prince? (could he close for Atlanta?)

All this, plus cross overs and 30 second pitches, n this week's episode one podcast!
