Drop the Pilot- Solarman (1988)


Week four of Comic Book Month and Tysto is back to talk about the Marvel animated pilot, Solarman. We disagree on a couple of things but both agree that the pilot itself is pretty crap. You can watch it on Youtube, the link is below as always, you lovely people.

Drop the Pilot-The Amazing Screw-On Head (2006)


Week three of Comic Book Month sees Martin return to chat about Mike Mignola's The Amazing Screw-On Head. Based on a one-shot comic from the world of Hellboy, the pilot features the voices of Paul Giamatti, David Hyde Pierce and Patton Oswalt. We may be witnessing history, folks, we may just possibly have found a pilot Martin actually likes... Features a guest appearance from one of our wives... Enjoy!

Drop the Pilot- Wonder Woman (2011)


Jen joins me to talk about one of the most infamous failed pilots of recent times. We discuss David E Kelly, probably mis-pronounce Themyscira a whole bunch and  tangent as usual. This was recorded on International Women's Day. We're sorry. The pilot is on Dailymotion, link is below as per usual.

Drop the Pilot- Dr. Strange (1978)


It's Comic Book Month here at Drop the Pilot! For this opening episode, Tysto and I talk about the first attempt at making a Doctor Strange movie but without the letters o, c and t. It's a feature length pilot and boring as heck at times but it brings out Tysto's bloodlust and my incompetence as a speaker. The pilot is available on DVD and Dailymotion but I don't know for how long on the latter. Link below anyway. Enjoy!
