Episode #11: Wonderfalls “Wax Lion”

Wonderfalls pilot episode “Wax Lion”

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 short short short lived mid 2000’s Fox mystical comedy Wonderfalls 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

Show Notes

{0:49} Episode Intro and Announcements: Mo is officially a co-hoister for Pilots and Petards Podcast. Drew is back. Review us on iTunes and you can pick one of our next shows! First reviewed, first served! Check our list of upcoming episodes.

[1:00] Background: Our faithful listener Steve choose Wonderfalls because he has a weakness for odd shows with odd concepts like this. There may or may not be real or fake news about Drew colluding with Steve to get Wonderfalls in the lineup. Stand by for further updates.

[3:42] Sixty Sec Summary: A pathological liar, Jaye, is the underachieving black sheep in the family. And unlike the rest of her family, she follows the path of least resistance to her unsatisfying life. Jay’s life appears to take a turn for the better when objects start talking to her and she goes on a mission to help people. Jay is successful and this pilot has a happy ending.

[4:10] High Points: Mysticism; legend setup; decently diverse cast; dialogue; bartender’s dimples.

[9:25] Low Points: Punching down; midwestern/texas woman; dialogue; tastelessness.

[18:00] Crabman Award: So crabless

[20:30] MVPs: This show’s potential; the waz lion; Jaye’s negativity

[28:56] Dangling Threads: SUVs and lesbians; views of success/being a loser; and portrayal of Mental Illness

    I disagree with your high and low points of Wonderfalls.

    My first high point, Jaye punching that lady in the face. I hated that lady. I am a nonviolent person, never violent, never will, but sometimes someone is stupid and deserves to get punched in the face. My second high point is the kid thanking Jaye for returning her mom’s purse, brought a tear to my eyes, choked me up a little. I like that kid.

    Low point, Jaye’s stupid father asking how often she masturbates and when was the last time she had an orgasm. Like who in the 21st century is going to admit they masturbate or have orgasms except for Jaye’s father.
