    #98 - Ted Lasso, Dirty John, and Mandy

    #98 - Ted Lasso, Dirty John, and Mandy

    We're returning to Dirty John this week with a second series of that anthology show, which no longer features anyone named John, and returning to The First Team (kind of) in Apple's similarly-themed football comedy, Ted Lasso. Plus we take in some bite-sized comedy in Diane Morgan's Mandy and it all kicks off over this year's TV BAFTAs, in which Fleabag and Derry Girls were defeated by Stath Lets Flats.

    #97 - The Deceived, Harlots, and Little Birds. Featuring Lisa McGee

    Get those headphones on and send the kids to bed for this special illicit sex-themed episode of the Pilot TV podcast where we not only visit Samantha Morton's house of ill-repute in Harlots and delve into the adaptation of Anaïs Nin's Little Birds, but see an affair take a distinctly supernatural turn in Lisa McGee's The Deceived as well. And speaking of The Deceived, Lisa herself is a guest on this week's show, dropping by to talk us through her Donegal-set psychological thriller and what we can expect from the next series of Derry Girls.

    #96 - The Umbrella Academy, Prodigal Son, Anthony, and Muppets Now

    #96 - The Umbrella Academy, Prodigal Son, Anthony, and Muppets Now

    It's umbrellas at the ready this week as we dive headfirst into Season 2 of Netflix's batty superhero series, The Umbrella Academy. And speaking of demented television concepts, serial killer procedural Prodigal son (which stars The Walking Dead's Tom 'Jesus' Payne and Michael Shane as a father-and-son sociopathic crime-solving duo) certainly fits the bill. Elsewhere, we tackle Jimmy McGovern's harrowing one-off drama, Anthony, and the rather less serious return of Kermit and the gang in Muppets Now.

    #95 - Cursed, A Suitable Boy, and Fort Salem

    #95 - Cursed, A Suitable Boy, and Fort Salem

    We're all about the witches this week as we unearth our belated review of Netflix's Arthurian epic, Cursed, and then sign up for Wiccan boot camp and the arrival of BBC3's army witch series, Fort Salem. Plus we're heading off to post-partition India for the adaptation of Vikram Seth's mammoth tome, A Suitable Boy. All the and a lot more discussion of fingering than you'll generally find on an average episode of the Pilot podcast, but you can all blame Terri for that.

    #94 - The Plot Against America and Condor

    #94 - The Plot Against America and Condor

    We are cursed by embargoes this week as Netflix's latest show, Cursed, demands our lips stay sealed for another week, however we are able to talk about David Simon and Ed Burns' new show, The Plot Against America, and discover Condor, a show we didn't know existed until season 2 dropped in our laps. All that plus lots of discussion around restaurant scenes and Boyd's recollections of having to talk to famouses at after parties.

    #93 - P-Valley, Mrs America, Little Voice, and... Warrior Nun!

    #93 - P-Valley, Mrs America, Little Voice, and... Warrior Nun!

    It's the episode you've all been waiting for - the show in which we *finally* review Warrior Nun, AKA the greatest TV show ever made. We also delve into the world of Mississippi strip clubs in P-Valley, join Cate Blanchett in some seventies political turmoil in Mrs America, and try to hit the big time with Apple's Little Voice. All that and we run through the 20 best TV shows of the year so far and find out what James has learned on the guitar this week.

Freaking awesome

I love this flipping pod

Fun TV review podcast

Great podcast that I listen to every week. However I’m knocking off a star for the Stath Lets Flats slander! Was surprised to hear even Terri call it a ‘broad comedy’ - presumably just because it isn’t a comedy drama? Most people I know who enjoy broad comedy don’t get Stath Lets Flats because the humour is so weird and specific. It isn’t exactly Mrs Brown’s Boys!

Love it

I’ve loved this podcast from the bending and every episode has me laughing as I work - the latest one with the Deadline exclusive was brilliant. However missed the weekly guitar playing!
