Pilot TV Podcast is a weekly show bringing the biggest TV news and reviews from the team behind Pilot TV Magazine.
||Explicit#18 - True Detective, The Punisher and The Passage||This week James is sulking as we weren't able to see Star Trek Discovery in time for the podcast. On the plus side, it does give us the opportunity to bust out some Klingon swear words and we *were* able to watch a trio of excellent other shows to make up for it. Namely, the third season of True Detective (all is forgiven), the second season of The Punisher (gone too soon) and the first season of The Passage, based on the book of the same name, which gets Jamesplained in excruciating detail. Plus Terri recommends a show that doesn't involve prison and we pick through the dumpster fire that was the Golden Globes.||13 1 2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#17 - Catastrophe, Brexit, Sex Education and Charmed||No fewer than *four* shows get the review treatment this week - partially making up for the appalling lack of post-Christmas news. Gorge yourselves on Netflix's Sex Education, the triumphant return of Catastrophe and the reboot of Charmed. Oh and we get all political with a look at Brexit: The Uncivil War - because that's a subject you don't hear enough about at the moment. Plus reminiscences about Christmas TV, an appraisal of Bandersnatch and a some love for Rome, Broad City and... er, Wentworth.||7 1 2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitReview Of The Year 2018||What kind of year has it been? We find out in the very first Pilot TV Podcast Special. Flicking through the last twelve months, we pick out the very best (and some of the worst) things to have graced our sets this year, pulling out all the memorable moments and going through Pilot's definitive top 10 shows of the year. Frankly, it's worth listening to for Terri's explanation of what a 'chufty badge' is alone.||28 12 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#16 - Luther, The ABC Murders, You and Doctor Who New Year's Special||There's a statue of Columbo in Budapest (it's true, look it up) so why isn't there one of John Luther in Hackney? Someone needs to sort that out because LOOFAH is back! On the new Pilot Pod we get into the long-awaited fifth series of Neil Cross' gritty crime show, catch up with a very different kind of detective in John Malkovich's Hercule Poirot via The ABC Murders, and track down Netflix's stalker thriller, You. Not to to mention getting a sneak preview of the Doctor Who New Year's Special. It's a Christmas miracle!||24 12 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#15 - Watership Down, The Long Song, Agatha And The Truth Of Murder||Dead rabbits are order of the day on this week's Pilot TV podcast, with the Beeb's Watership Down getting the review treatment. Also in the line-up is colonial era Jamaican drama The Long Song and Channel 5's pseudo fictional Agatha & The Truth Of Murder which contains both Agatha (Christie) and murder but little in the way of actual truth. All this and a celebration of Hell On Wheels, Oz and Terri banging on about The Apprentice, which is entirely against Pilot T&Cs.||17 12 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#14 - Castle Rock, The Good Place and The Innocent Man||This week we talk Christmas Specials (one of which Boyd is actually in, albeit doing unspeakable things with women's underwear), Golden Globes and Season 2 of American Gods. The team defuses some of the latest TV bombs to drop, including Stephen King chillfest Castle Rock, comedy-gold sitcom The Good Place and choc-full-of-murder doc The Innocent Man. Plus you get to hear what our Viking names would be, hear James Jamesplain The Picard Manoeuvre to Terri and discover why Jamie Dornan is now a massive fan of the podcast (Jamie mate, this one's for you). PS. Apologies for the slightly mixed audio quality on this one - we basically recorded it in a broom cupboard.||10 12 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#13 - Fortitude, Performance Live: LOVE and The Marvellous Mrs Maisel||Three new shows: one unspeakably depressing, one unspeakably cold and one unspeakably funny. So all bases covered, then. We also celebrate some vintage titles from Banshee to The Good Wife via a documentary about drug addiction (thanks Terri). All that and we throw in some fun viking nomenclature to boot.||3 12 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#12 - Death & Nightingales, Mrs. Wilson and Kidding||This week on the Pilot TV podcast we treat you to a wealth of pick 'n' mix metaphors, Sex And The City dissection and an inexplicable analogy involving eighties Lenny Henry incarnation Delbert Wilkins (Sponditious!). We also take on some Irish period drama with Jamie Dornan in Death & Nightingales (no nightingales were actually harmed), hear all about Ruth Wilson's nan in Mrs. Wilson (yes, really) and catch up with Eternal Sunshine's Michel Gondry and Jim Carrey for Kidding. Plus we read out some of the more colourful comments from our iTunes reviews page and discover why James has the enunciation of a Disney villain.||25 11 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#11 - The Last Kingdom, My Brilliant Friend and Blood||It's Vikings a-go-go on the podcast this week, by which we mean The Last Kingdom has returned to our screens, bringing its Norse shenanigans to Netflix for the first time. And if Netflix is getting Scandinavian, HBO is going Italian thanks to its first foreign language drama, My Brilliant Friend. Meanwhile Channel 5 has created an original drama and... it's actually really good. Who'd have thought? All this and the latest discussion of The Mandalorian, Game Of Thrones' arrival date and a brief interlude where we wax lyrical about the genius of David E. Kelley.||18 11 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#10 - Origin, Narcos: Mexico and The Kominsky Method||Acting classes, space horror and mountains of cocaine are the subjects of this week's podcast, as we not only pick up the latest shows to hit your screens but also delve into a few suitably burning topics. We get philosophical about *that* episode of The Walking Dead (there are spoiler warnings beforehand, don't panic), embrace Michael Douglas' collaboration with sitcom god Chuck Lorre and discuss our pick of the worst series finales of all time.||12 11 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#9 - The Sinner, Beat and Louis Theroux's Altered States||This week's podcast comes with a strongly worded content warning: we have finally that episode of Sally4Ever and discuss its sordid sexual content in quite forensic details. If you'd rather not have the show's debased delights spoiled then we clearly mark that section with a spoiler warning and you can skip the section between 2:30.30 and 11:37.52 for your own sanity. In equally sexy news, we spread the love around for Louis Theroux's new polyamory episode, jump into the second season of The Sinner and head on down to the Berlin clubbing scene for Amazon Prime's Beat.||4 11 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#8 - Homecoming, The First, House Of Cards and Ray Donovan||This week's podcast sees a big old fight break out as Terri and Boyd get up in each other's faces with conflicting views and minor fisticuffs over both Sean Penn's Martian drama The First and Julia Roberts' Amazon Prime show Homecoming. We also get into the sixth seasons of both House Of Cards and Ray Donovan, not to mention uncovering the reasons why Terri won't date anyone under 5'10".||29 10 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#7 - Sally4Ever, The Little Drummer Girl and Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina||This week the Pilot team dive into the awkward, explicit and downright hilarious sex montage that forms the high point of Julia Davis' Sally4Ever, we tap into our inner emo for Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina and get thoroughly Carré'd away with the BBC adaptation of The Little Drummer Girl. Plus we explore Terri's psyche to find out why rape dramas are her happy place, follow Boyd on a trip to the set of Stranger Things Season 3 and discuss the future of Marvel on Netflix after last week's shock cancellations.||22 10 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#6 - Informer, Butterfly and Daredevil||This week the gloves come off as Terri and Boyd start throwing punches over ITV's Butterfly, meanwhile Marvel/Netflix manage to pick themselves off the mat after a string of disappointments with the much improved Daredevil Season 3. Not to mention news that Rob Lowe is joining the Lincolnshire constabulary and James demands the immediate return of all your televisions as apparently you're just not using them properly.||15 10 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#5 - The Walking Dead, The Bisexual and The Haunting Of Hill House||This week Pilot TV's Terri White is swapped out for her Southern alter-ego Julia Raeside (the sceptical yin to Boyd's perma-sunny yang) as we dive deep into the latest announcements from Amazon (Wheel Of Time fans rejoice), dissect the possible meanings of the new Star Trek Discovery poster (Romulans, anyone?) and take a time out to recommend some long-lost shows that might have slipped your notice. All that plus reviews of Netflix's The Haunting Of Hill House, Channel 4's The Bisexual and the ninth Season of The Walking Dead (still dead, still walking).||8 10 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#4 - The Good Place, Elite and The Man In The High Castle||Doctor Who is on our minds in this week's episode as the team presents our official review of the thirteenth doctor's debut as well as Netflix's Elite and the belated return of Amazon's The Man In The High Castle. We also pull back the curtain on some of the shows we're watching right now, talk about Marvel and DC's small screen war and bathe in the warm, heavenly glow of The Good Place.||1 10 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#3 - Doctor Who, American Horror Story and Bodyguard||On this week's Pilot TV podcast we take an exclusive peek inside the TARDIS with an early look at the new series of Doctor Who, recount some of our favourite TV shows (hear all about Terri's penchant for misery porn and why James despises all things fun), plus we get apocalyptic with the new Season of American Horror Story. There's also the usual rundown of the latest TV news, as well as an in-depth, spoilerific debate about the Bodyguard finale (all plot spoilers are restricted to between 09:00 and 18:33, so if you haven't seen it yet then you might want to skip that bit).||25 9 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#2 - Killing Eve, Maniac and Mystery Road||The second instalment of Pilot TV's podcast once again with our hosts banging on about Bodyguard as we get to grips with Sergeant Budd's latest escapades (minus spoilers, naturally). More coherently, however, we take a deep dive into the three best shows kicking off this week, which include the phenomenal Killing Eve (making its way to British shores at long last), Netflix's mega-trippy Maniac, and bonzer Australian drama Mystery Road. All that and the latest TV news, including the latest Westworld casting and why we're all going to die while watching The Walking Dead.||17 9 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit#1 - Live Special - Strangers, Black Earth Rising and A Discovery Of Witches||Recorded in front of a live audience because why the hell not, the first ever Pilot TV Podcast, tied in with the new cinematic TV magazine brand from the people who brought you Empire, is hosted by the mag's Editor in Chief Terri White, along with her trusty bald deputies James Dyer and Boyd Hilton. Together they discuss this week's Hot Topic - current BBC ratings smash Bodyguard, plus TV News on the imminent arrival of the hugely anticipated comedy thriller Killing Eve, from Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the trailer for the final season of House Of Cards, and TV sexiest ever drama, apparently, Wanderlust. We also review new ITV thriller Strangers starring John Simm, BBC2's wildly ambitious Black Earth Rising with the phenomenal Michaela Coel, and Sky One/NOW TV's big-budget fantasy series A Discovery Of Witches.||10 9 2018||Free||View in iTunes|

Love the podcast but Terri can get on my nerves
New Fav Podcast
This podcast has quickly taken over as my favourite. Great group of journalist who have found the balance of witty and insightful. Thanks for bigging up The Kominsky Method, as I probably wouldn’t have tried it if you guys hadn’t praised it so highly (I loved it, btw).
James Dyer’s upper class twang is not usually my cup of tea, but he seems a beltin’ bloke (who I’d happily nip to the pub with!), and has taken to the role of host like a duck to water. Boyd is cool too, I suppose...
Terri White is awesome in this. Brings a hefty dose of Northern crass that I absolutely love. Never change!
Lovely company for TV talk. Funny & lighthearted but knowledgeable.
Wish they’d use some compression/limiting on the audio though.
