When Francis Ford Coppola does sci-fi television, it gets weird. We've already talked about THE PEOPLE, and now it's time to explore the old west alien surgery fish monster immortal princess shapeshifting panther and melancholy tetherball TV series WHITE DWARF. 

No, those were not just random words. That's actually what WHITE DWARF is about. It's one of the strangest TV shows we've ever reviewed (and that's saying something), but was WHITE DWARF... canceled too soon?

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a walk on the weird side with Neal McDonough (LEGENDS OF TOMORROW) and Paul Winfield (STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN) and CCH Pounder (AVATAR), in what may be the most bonkers project on all of their respective resum├ęs, as our PILOT SEASON concludes!

The ABC television series DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES was one of the most popular shows of the early 21st century, but for one reason or another, we never watched it. In the pilot episode for the podcast THE RANDOMIZER, we watch a randomly selected episode from the middle DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES and try to figure out what's going on!

Yes, it's random, but it used to be one of the ways that people discovered new television shows, before it was easy to catch up to long-running series on digital streaming, DVD or Blu-ray. Does it still work? Will we figure out what's happening on DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, or will we turn out to be WAY off the mark?

Find out in this pilot episode, and don't forget to subscribe on Patreon to vote for which one of these PILOT SEASON podcasts will go to series, exclusively for our Patrons, at the end of April!

Our PILOT SEASON continues with one of the weirdest footnotes in Francis Ford Coppola's career! Only two months before THE GODFATHER made him a household name, Coppola executive produced a TV pilot called THE PEOPLE, which starred Kim Darby (TRUE GRIT) and William Shatner (STAR TREK) as city folk who stumble across a town of, more-or-less, superpowered Amish people. Yes. Really.

THE PEOPLE never made it past the pilot episode, but was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a trip to this mysterious community where kazoos dance in mid-air, Vogue magazines are verboten, and William Shatner gives the most natural performance in the whole ensemble!

Our PILOT SEASON continues with AVERAGEFEST, a brand new podcast about the hunt for the most mediocre movie ever made! And the most average movie we could think of, to start with, is MICKEY BLUE EYES, starring Hugh Grant as a charmingly befuddled British person who has to impersonate a mobster to marry the woman he loves.

Find out what makes MICKEY BLUE EYES just kinda okay, not terrible but not particularly good either, and how you could use this screenplay as a blueprint for basically every middle of the road rom-com ever made, in this pilot episode for AVERAGEFEST!

Back in the 1960s, the Robinson family got LOST IN SPACE, in a classic sci-fi tv series that got better ratings than STAR TREK. 50 years later, the WB tried to reboot that franchise with director John Woo (FACE/OFF) and a young Adrianne Palicki (THE ORVILLE). Only this time, the Robinson family had to fence extraterrestrial threats in a post-9/11 milieu, a la BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.

John Woo's THE ROBINSONS: LOST IN SPACE may have been "badass," but was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dive into the furthest reaches of outer space to figure out what went wrong, what went right, and where this unusual reboot of LOST IN SPACE would have gone if more episodes had been produced. Who knows? Maybe it would have been better than the new Netflix version. (Then again, maybe not...)

The year was 1990, and Donald Trump got himself a game show by taking the British series BOB'S FULL HOUSE, filming it at Trump Castle, and changing the name to TRUMP CARD. It only lasted one season, but was it any good? And if not, was it as embarrassing as THE 100 LIVES OF BLACK JACK SAVAGE?

Welcome to CANCELED TOO SOON: THE HOME GAME, a pilot episode for a brand new podcast about defunct tv game shows! We're debuting pilot episodes for bonus shows throughout the month of April. Everyone will get to hear the pilots, but at the end of the month, only our Patreon subscribers get to vote on which podcast will become a Patreon-exclusive series!

What do you get when you mix William Shatner from STAR TREK, Adam West from BATMAN, John Cassavetes from THE DIRTY DOZEN and Joseph Cotten from CITIZEN KANE? You get a beefcake sword-and-sandal television series about ALEXANDER THE GREAT, and it only lasted one freakin' episode.

ALEXANDER THE GREAT had one of the most bizarre casts of any TV series, ever, but was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take you through the history of the sword-and-sandal genre, place this weird failed pilot in the context of the cast's lengthy and storied careers, and imagine the alternate reality in which ALEXANDER THE GREAT was a hit series, and STAR TREK and BATMAN - which premiered three years later - had to hire different leading men.
