Drop the Pilot- Wes Craven's Night Visions (1990)


Tysto returns for more police show hi-jinks as we talk about a thriller movie co-written and directed by one Wes Craven. Sadly, it's more Deadly Friend than A Nightmare on Elm Street. Except, less fun. We discuss the cast, give the characters alternative names thanks to Youtube's Closed Captions and briefly talk about cheese. Contains strong language.

Drop the Pilot- Microcops (1989)



In the third episode of Coptember, Martin begrudgingly returns to talk about Microcops. We talk about the poor script, the unusually crappy effects by Industrial Light & Magic and hey, it has "cops" in the title, so... (contains strong language)

Drop the Pilot- Popeye Doyle (1986)


Tysto is back to chat about the second episode of our police theme month, the sequel to the French Connection movies, Popeye Doyle. It's actually not bad, well shot and acted but it's a bit of a slog. Let us know in the comments below or by email (dropthepilot@gmail.com) what you think of the new format for longer pilots. Tryin' something new, here, people, gotta avoid that Baffled length again. Anyway, the link to the pilot is below. End music- Axel Broke by Matt Harris.

Coptember: Turner & Hooch (1990)


It's the first episode of Coptember! That's right, we're dong a themed month! Because we have no shame! All September, it'll be cop shows and the first one is a sequel to a Tom Hanks movie but with Biff Tannen instead of the dude from Bosom Buddies. Anyway, Jim joins me to talk about this and we finish under half an hour so we try to stall for time to make it past 30 minutes. Do we succeed or do I just stick a long music cue at the end to make up time? Listen and find out.Contains one use of strong language because I really didn't want to edit it out. The pilot is on Youtube, as linked below, but be warned, the quality is quite poor.
