Drop the Pilot- Mockingbird Lane (2012)


For our Halloween special, Tysto and I delve into the updated version of The Munsters, Mockingbird Lane, that aired during the spooky season back in 2012. It was intended to be a pilot but obviously didn't make it and I can see why. This may be one of those rare pilots that I actually hate. Maybe. We chat about the violence, the character assassinations, Eddie Izzard being a great human being and I compare it to the Addams Family movies. The pilot is available on Vimeo, link is below.

Bonus: Supernatural Pilot Commentary


As an early Halloween gift, enjoy this commentary to the 2005 pilot to Supernatural. Jen and I wanted to do this and it just happens to be set at Halloween but it's all good.  We talk about the leads, where the show goes (so, spoilers) and just how much of a relief it is to watch a good pilot.You can find it on Netflix in the US and Prime in the UK. This is a stand-in episode for our regular ep, which will be released later than planned but earlier than next Monday...

Bonus: The Robinsons: Lost In Space (remastered)


As a bonus episode, I decided to go back and re-edit an episode from 18 months ago, back when I really wasn't that good at editing at all. I have sorted some background noise and made the episode tighter, removing any unnecessary words, sounds, coughs, pauses, umms and aaahs.The links to the pilot are on the page for the original release, April 25th 2018. A brand new episode will be released next week, a "spooky" pilot in time for Halloween. And another reboot of a classic 60s show...

Bonus: An Outtakes Show


For a bonus episode, it's time for some outtakes and bloopers from the past few episodes. Listen as Martin pisses me off, enjoy a salvaged conversation from an episode Jim and I recorded for Coptember that can't be released on its own (audio was messed up) and hear a conversation by Owen and I regarding the final scene of Sniff that was cut for time. Contains an annoyed Scotsman, therefore, strong language. Enjoy!

Drop the Pilot-Sniff (1988)


Owen makes a triumphant return to the podcast to chat about Sniff, a sit-com about a reporter and his newly adopted dog who can sniff out good stories. It's quite dull and extremely rushed so we hypothetically fix it by... making it longer... We also talk about the dog, the rest of the cast and the terrible mugging by Robert Wuhl. We both wonder if we are actually supposed to like this guy or not. Contains that strong language.
