Pilot Study: Season 2

News / Pilot Study / Podcast / May 10, 2017

Earlier this month we wrapped up the second season of Pilot Study, our TV podcast dedicated to the art of the pilot episode. Some highlights?

  • Our most popular episode was (somehow) our look at HBO’s The Young Pope. It began with a pile of dead babies (just watch the pilot) and ended with a small victory over second place Rick & Morty.
  • Theme months included _____ & ______, and Unaired Month, with a short trip into what we called “Murder Month” (this was post-election, it was a dark time).
  • Some of my favorites? I’d go with the doubleheader of Full House and Fuller House, the entirety of our Unaired month, which starts with Clerks, and Riverdale.
  • And of course, we went to SXSW(!) and put on a live show on their official podcast stage.

Take a listen to the entirety of season 2 below. We return on May 23 with season 3.
