Also, we just learned there's a book! Read the interview with the author, Patrick Jankiewicz, on Gizmodo why don't you? https://gizmodo.com/greatest-american-hero-companion-author-interview-1850446563
Or even better, buy it from a local bookshop! Why yes, it does come in hardback. Maybe just in time for Xmas? Since Claire doesn't listen to the episode, much less ever read the show notes, she'll never know that I just got it for her!
Greatest American Hero (Part 2)
Join Claire and Tod for the exciting second half of the pilot episode of The Greatest American Hero: Pilot, in which we wrap up reviewing this amazing TV show.

Excellent Greatest American Hero Podcast
This is a really really entertaining take on my favorite tv show. They speak fondly about the pilot for the show. They go scene by scene and provide really insightful takes and are they are a really fun duo. I recommend this highly if you’re a fan of the show and I can’t wait to hear more episodes! I hope they do every episode for the entire series!
My favorite TV podcast that I edit
Hey, I love this show, because it’s my wife’s idea! I just edit the thing and make some jokes.
This podcast has everything TGAH, from several of the actors’ names to whether lawyers are allowed to sleep with their clients. Would recommend!
