Episode #9: 7th Heaven “Anything You Want”

7th Heaven pilot episode “Anything You Want”

The podcast with nothing much ado about aircrafts, and potentially everything ado with first episodes of a filmic series. Join us today as we cast judgement and determine if  the 90’s WB familedy, family comedy/dramedy 7th Heaven will be hoisted, or not hoisted: that is the question!

Cheat Sheet:

  • Petard = bomb
  • Hoist a pilot = bad episode
  • Not hoist a pilot = good episode

Understanding Hoisters: Overt- not hidden; secular- without religious basis; existential-about existence; pretentious- trying to impress.

Show Notes

{1:00} Podcast Intro: Pilots and Petards first guest, Moana. Review us on iTunes and you can pick one of our next shows! First reviewed, first served! Check our list of upcoming episodes.

{3:13} Background: Tori, our reviewer and Drew’s spouse, picked this show because, “These days tv shows are either about the adults, or the show is about the 12 year olds but this show is about the family as a whole. I wish there were more shows like that today.” #nostalgiaoner. Poor Moana claims she was forced to grow up with 7th Heaven because her family only had an antenna, and not cable.

{7:35} Sixty Sec Summary:

{8:46} High Points: Drew liked the juggling storylines. Moana appreciated the emphasis on the women being empowered and independent. Jimbo liked the authenticity of the discussion about Mary’s first kiss.

{29:48} Low Points: Horny ass parents; incest; anti smoking campaign; and the blond boy to mention only a few.

{36:08} Crabman Award: By unanimous decision, hella Crabless;

{40:42} MVPs: Jimbo awarded the gramma for refusing treatment; Moana snubbed Ruth by giving Happy all the glory. Drew greatly appreciated a positive representation of Christianity which Jimbo picked apart like a prick.

{1:00:02} Dangling Threads of Interest: Dirt bag stephen collins, read the article about his molestation that occurred between 1973 and 1994. Prince Charles (literally EW) and the 7th Heaven Diana Conspiracy…

{1:12:00} Watch or Rewatch:  Unanimous, strong no!

{1:12:15} To Hoist or Not to Hoist?: Hoisted to Hell!

{1:13:20} Petardar:

  • Gilmore Girls because Jimbo (that sexist bastard) thinks it’s a much better girl show.
  • The Wonder Years is a better protrayal of another white family in the burbs.
  • God Is not Dead beacuse Drew says it is so intense.
  • Green Leaf, it’s Oprah! and according to Moana a better show about a religious family.
  • The Leftovers just have faith in Moana’s petradar.

{1:20:20} Next Week: Episode #10 Dawson’s Creek from our reviewer Rebecca. Click here to see our following weeks .

{1:21:03} Plugs: Pilots and Petards official closing music is an instrumental Entheos remix of Alive. Official ad background music mixed by Jake Drew.

{1:22:15} Reviews:

{1:24:30} Shop Talk: Moana’s amatureness.

  1. Yeah man, we agree. Glad you liked it. We are trying to get her to join us. We just have to get her sound down like I did.


  2. Thanks Dean,

    I’d love to do Black-ish. We started a thing where our reviewers on iTunes and apple podcast pick our next shows, and all our fans like these 90s TV shows about good looking white people on the WB.

    I’ll add Blackish to my list. But if you want to be the pilot you want to see on your feed, you should write us a review and request Blackish before Forest Gump chooses Johnny Bravo!
