Awesome, unique idea well-executed!

Seriously, who DOES have time to watch everything out there? This podcast is so well put together and is actually very useful when determining what to watch. Pilot shows are such weird animals sometimes, and this show covers off on it with wit, humor, and actual useful insight. Excellent job.

Everything you want to know without watching the show

I love how these guys go over pilots, their plots, and the perceived future of the show. This is something I like to do with my friends from time to time, explore around and watch pilots. These guys just made a dope podcast about it!
