Davies joins us as guest host when we take a trip back to the 1950s for Marvel/I Love Lucy hybrid show WandaVision, and force Terri to sit through some Star Trek animation in Lower Decks.

Happy New Year to you all! And what better way to celebrate than to hear Terri once again concede that a show James has banged on about endlessly is actually rather good. Which one? You’ll have to wait and see. We also take a look at the new adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand on Starzplay, head back to Elizabethan times for Season 2 of A Discov…

The Expanse returns this week, much to Terri and Boyd's bemusement - but don't worry, James is on hand to Beltersplain everything as needed. We also dive into Amazon's new pseudo-Lost show, The Wilds, and embrace a little festive cheer (kind of) with the Euphoria Christmas special. All that and a rather unexpected discussion of late stage capitalis…
 
2020 has been quite a year. A global pandemic, political upheaval and most of us being forced to spend large chunks of it under virtual house arrest. However, amidst the crises and carnage we've been treated to a genuinely outstanding year for television and that's what this episode is all about. James, Terri and Boyd run through their takes on 202…
 
It's the moment you've all been waiting for: we make Terri sit through HBO's near-impenetrable hard sci-fi series Raised By Wolves (not to be confused with Caitlin Moran's Wolverhampton-set comedy of the same name, which she would have enjoyed far more). Plus we attempt to find out why Tim Roth is heading back to Liverpool for season 3 of Tin Star …
 
We resisted for weeks but we've finally relented and agreed to give Netflix's The Queen's Gambit the full review treatment it deserves. Plus we head behind bars for Nicholas Pinnock's E4 courtroom/prison drama For Life and bamboozle Terri with SyFy's bizarro supernatural YA miniseries Trickster. In addition, James proselytises about Counterpart, Te…

Plus Terri updates us …
 
It's a momentous episode this week as, after 107 episodes of James banging on about it, Terri finally watched The West Wing. What's more, she reviews the show for us at the top of this week's show (well, the episodes she's seen, anyway). That alone should be more than enough to warrant a download, but there's more! Nick Frost drops by the pod to ta…
 
James discovers the joy of Cobra Kai this week, having finally accepted Netflix's glorious Karate Kid spinoff series into his heart, meanwhile Terri anoints herself 'the reality sponge' and Boyd maintains that he still hasn't watched the Little Mix reality show.

Plus we take in some bite-sized comedy in Diane Morgan's Mandy and it all kicks off over this year's TV BAFTAs, in which Fl…
 
Get those headphones on and send the kids to bed for this special illicit sex-themed episode of the Pilot TV podcast where we not only visit Samantha Morton's house of ill-repute in Harlots and delve into the adaptation of Anaïs Nin's Little Birds, but see an affair take a distinctly supernatural turn in Lisa McGee's The Deceived as well. And speak…
 
It's umbrellas at the ready this week as we dive headfirst into Season 2 of Netflix's batty superhero series, The Umbrella Academy.

We also delve into the world of Mississippi strip clubs in P-Valley, join Cate Blanchett in some seventies political turmoil in Mrs America, and try to hit the big time with Apple's Little Voice. All that and we run …
 
Malevolent demons, pint-sized assassins and Spandau Ballet are the topics on this week's show as we review Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels, Season 2 of Amazon's Hanna, and The Kemps: All True (yes really).

We didn't start the fire... but we're pretty sure we know who did in Amazon's Little Fires Everywhere. Plus we try desperately to figure out what in creation is going on in Season 2 of Homecoming (it helps if you've seen Season 1, trust us), and we strap Terri down and force her to sit through SyFy's new budget outing, Pandora. It goes about as wel…
 
It's a double dose of Mark Ruffalo this week as he takes on twin duties in HBO’s preternaturally depressing adaptation of Wally Lamb's I Know This Much Is True. Plus we head out to Cape Cod with Monica Raymund in cop drama Hightown and rap along with Dave Burd (who seems unhealthily obsessed with his own genitals) in FX comedy Dave. Plus there's so…

It's only smegging Red Dwarf on the podcast this week — a show that Terri had never seen before this *feature-length* episode, much to James and Boyd's collective enjoyment. Plus we review Alma's Not Normal (a sitcom Terri enjoyed far more, but mainly as it appears to have been based upon her life) but sadly *not* Killing Eve Season 3 as, while we'…
 
The magnificent Lennie James returns to our screens (in a bright yellow puffy jacket, naturally) having written a follow-up to 2018's brilliant Save Me.

It's a Julian Fellowes double-bill this week as we sit down to high tea with some posh socialites in Belgravia and then set about scoring goals against posh footballers in The English Game.
