Ever wondered where all those unseen pilots go? So was Chris Vaughn when he asked us to talk a bit about pilots we’ve seen and whether we think they should be made available to other TV lovers. Sadly, only Amrie’s been lucky enough to have seen one but we do have some ideas for ways networks could cash in on these unseen pilots. We also go over some news including cancellations, folks cast in pilots, unofficial renewals, and High School Musical 4. As always, we discuss some our favorites from the past week including Battlestar Galactica, The Amazing Race, How I Met Your Mother, Reaper, Lost, Burn Notice, Being Erica, and America’s Best Dance Crew. And, um, Amrie makes an observation about herself that leads that leaves us breathless… literally.
In the next episode, Chris Vaughn strikes again! This time he wants us to talk about shows that come out of nowhere and become overnight hits. If you want to chime in on that topic or want to share other thoughts with us, give our listener line a call at 213-985-3176, leave a comment below, or email us.
