I can't wait, woo-hoo!
Anything thing these two Midas men touch turns to gold, which bodes well for this new show.
Just not relevant
I enjoy most of these two podcasters work. They're talented, funny, the works. Unfortunately, this show just does not have the mass appeal you would hope for from such talented individuals. If you're under 35, you will likely receive nothing from this show but discussions on television pilots than only a minutea of listeners will ever have even heard of. If they start working in more modern programs, such as they've done with Episode 3, or simply shows within the last 20 years, I'll update the review. So long as it remains an exercise solely in nostalgia, I just can't recommend it.
Please stop reviewing new pilots
There's no point. The show had this nostalgic feel at the beginning, with the theme music and everything. Had a great vibe. Now someone convinced them they had to "get with the kids nowadays" and review new shows and ignore everything from the 70s and 80s. Totally ruins the show. The hosts need to stay in their era. That worked.
