We’re all familiar with the idea of a pilot episode, the one-off test run of a series to see whether or not it could ever work as a television show. But what happens to the shows that never make it past that stage? Usually they’re cast aside and disappear from the public eye forever, doomed to fade into obscurity. But Melbourne comedy troupe The Consumption say “No more!” We are reaching deep into the bowels of television history to bring you back hot, steaming piles of TV's many bizarre miscarriages. All while mixing the most disgusting metaphors possible. We’ll seek out and expose ourselves to the worst television pilots ever made so you don’t have to. Each episode will see us dissect and discuss another horrible failed pilot for our amusement. Join us in our schadenfreude as we talk about wrestlers solving crimes, invisible monsters, kung-fu ravers, talking dogs solving crimes, teleporting stand-up comedians, cross dressing misogynists, magicians solving crimes and a whole bunch of other terrible ideas, most of which involve crimes being solved. Welcome to Failure to Launch! The only TV podcast about shows that don’t exist.

Such a fun show!

AWFUL failed TV pilots + commentary from The Consumption comedy troupe & guests = real joy and laughter. i always look forward to listening to eps.
Keep up the great work The Consumption!

You guys are so witty/funny

Very funny content, nails exactly what I think on the occasions I watch the pilots before the podcast. You guys are gold. 👌🏻

Failure to launch

Fantastic podcast about some terrible shows. It takes me a while to listen to it because they make the shows sound so bad, I have to watch them at the same time.
