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.

Welcome, to the Disney + Podcast... Well not exactly, but can you blame us when they're pumping out hit after hit?

This week another comic book show (our specialty) as we take on Ms Marvel.

To summarize our take, Chris's wife, who hates shows about teenagers, loved this pilot! 

We also have some pretty good crossovers and pitches this week!

Not even Covid could stop us... though it could delay us, from fulfilling our destiny and reviewing a show starring the hero of Star Wars Episode One... this podcast's namesake if you believe Steve.

So, how is the much-awaited show? Can it hold up to things, and did this show inadvertently create the Flea multiverse?

all this and more on this Star Wars episode one podcast.

"So what is Shoresy?" "well it's" "Huh?" "Well it's a spin off of Letterkenny"

You'll get it once you watch it.

Perhaps the most Canadian show we've ever done (It's as canadian as Normal People was Irish).

Join us as we recap the pilot (having never watched letterkenny) and sort of fall in love with Sudbury.

Also we obviously cross this over with the Mighty Ducks.

Mike Myers is back! Mike Myers? Hard to believe he hasn't done comedy basically in 14 years, but he is back, with a Netflix Show.

Chris and Steve try to dissect, is it funny? does it work? is it for us, or just for Mike Myers?

One of the most interesting shows we've done on the Episode One Podcast in awhile, The Pentaverate, plus crossovers and 30 second pitches.

What's real? Is Obi-Wan real? Is this podcast? Is Steve?

Moon Knight is here, perhaps the biggest leap the Marvel Cinematic universe has taken thus far... or at least in terms of TV Shows.

How does the show stack up to previous Marvel shows with more established characters? How does the Star power of Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke fare? 

And is this show more proof that the Freeform Cinematic Universe and the Marvel Cinematic Universe are one and the same?

All this plus crossovers and 30 second pitches

Fresh off the Oscars, we're here to talk about Oscar Host Amy Schumer! Well, we also talk a little about other stuff that happened that night.

But then Back to Amy Schumer, she has a new show on Hulu, and the Episode One Podcast was curious, so we dive in!

We also found another Comic book Show! Can you believe it? DMZ, based off the Brian Wood - Riccardo Burchielli Vertigo series, adapted into a miniseries starring Rosario Dawson!

An eclectic pair of show this week, and we may have had a bit more fun talking about them than we did watching them.

Join us, won't you? On this week's Episode One Pdcast!

A new record for us, 3 shows, almost under one hour!

We debated doing one big crossover and having the show be "Winning flags dropout" but, that was too confusing, even for us.

This week we discuss the Hulu docudrama about Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos, a docu drama about the 80s Showtime Lakers, AND a somewhat based on a true story about pirates!

It's here! The 155th Episode Spectacular!

We take a look at two great new episode ones, Bel-Air, the reimagining of The Fresh Prince, and Single Drunk Female, the latest addition to the Freeform Cinematic Universe.

We also take a look back at shows we've watched more, and there are quite a few!

Also Crossovers, and a 30 second pitch for the ages... Is Bel-Air the real story and Fresh Prince was the "How I met your Mother" style retelling?

Jan 27, 2022

And we thought we picked two shows with nothing in common? Both shows are all about fathers! Sure in one you don't know the father is, but in the other the father is a Nazi Asshole!

Remember in December when we were afraid of Comic Book Tv Show overload? Turns out the Cure is James Gunn!

And the sequel show/spinoff/reboot continues. Does it work this time?

All this and crossovers and 30 second pitches!

Jan 5, 2022

There are two types of shows the episode one podcast must do.

Comic book shows and Star Wars shows.

Boba Fett is back, the Mandalorian isn't yet. This is the second live action Star Wars show, how does it hold up. Can it differentiate itself from the Mandalorian, or is it more of the same? (not that more Mando would be bad).

Also a lot of takes on Star Wars Episode One, the other thing we discuss. All this plus 30 second pitches and Crossovers!
