Drop the Pilot-Heat Vision and Jack (1999)

Martin from Extended Edition returns to talk about one of the most famous failed pilots of all time. You'd think this means we are running out of pilots to talk about but nope, still got 100+ of the buggers kicking about the internet. We chat about the usual, the cast, the music, Ben Stiller mugging and I decide that this is it for spoof pilots for now. If not forever.

Clarissa Now (1995)



Jen from the Pilot Inspectors podcast returns to talk about the 1995 pilot Clarissa Now, the proposed CBS sequel to the Nickelodeon show Clarissa Explains It All. We talk about the new setting, the lack of characters from the original and wonder why Clarissa seems to be a different character when this was made just a year after the first show ended. Which is odd, especially considering the same creators are involved.  In a first for this podcast, we have a pilot that my co-host had actually watched when it aired on TV back in 1995.

Baffled (1973) PART TWO

                                                       
Tysto is still here, talking about Baffled and the mystery that has gripped us all will finally be solved... does Tysto finally understand what is going on? Reminder, this thing got a cinema release in the UK in the 70s. It was released on DVD here in 2010. It has probably even aired on TV in the UK over the years too, I'm not sure. It never aired in the US.

Baffled (1973) PART ONE

                                                           
Tysto returns to talk about a pilot with a very apt name, Baffled. Leonard Nimoy stars as a race car driver who receives psychic powers somehow and becomes a paranormal investigator. And this wasn't picked up! This is one of those episodes that we encourage you to watch the pilot first if only to appreciate just how lost in the plot Tysto gets. As this is a feature length pilot, this episode went a little long so will be split into two parts.

 Oh, there are two versions of this on Youtube, the one we watched and one that is split into parts and is structured better at the start. We found out about it too late but figured we watched the TV version  and the other is the cinema/DVD version, so we watched the one we should have. This one-
