Episode #17: The End of the F—ing World “Episode 1” with rapper Jake Drew

End of the Fucking World pilot “Episode 1”

Welcome to Pilots and Petards Podcast, (petards is a word, usually a bomb or explosive device used to take down a door, it is non-discriminatory) 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 British dark comedy drama The End of the Fucking World 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

Episode Intro and Announcements: Mo is out on vacation. We have a special guest Jake Drew. New show feature for listeners to make their voices heard.

Background: Jake chose this episode because he binged it and loved it.

60 Sec Summary:  James thinks he is a psychopath because he doesn’t understand jokes and kills animals for a hobby. Alyssa is fed up with life and people so she reaches out to James hoping to escape. The two start dating because James wants to kill Alyssa, and Alyssa wants to run away. The show ends with the two 17 year olds running away after James accomplishes a life long dream of punching his dad in the face.

High Points: So many! Jake loved the cinematography most. Jimbo loved the humor. Drew, of course loved the showing, not telling. The narration, dialogue, acting and music were all highs too.

Low Points: Jake and Jimbo were lowless. Drew didn’t like the mom, Tony, and Alyssa storyline.

Crabman Award: James’ mother by split decision, Orange hat lady was a honorable mention.

MVPs: Alyssa, the execution/directing, and internal monologues.

Dangling Threads of Interest: Dexter; me too/ mum and daughter dynamic, British seasons/series vs. American seasons.

Watch or Rewatch: Hella watch/rewatch!

To Hoist or Not to Hoist?: very strong hella not hoist.

  1. Can’t wait for the Jake Drew episode, that kid is lit like The Weed Man’s blunt. Fingers crossed for a freestyle or something. Maybe a hoistlers rap battle.

  2. I just watched this show.

    Less than 20 minutes. It is going to make a great episode. Mo really missed out on this one.


  3. The end of the fucking world was fucking awesome. I did not hoist the pilot. I thought it was great. I did not find any low points. I thought the whole pilot was the high point. I thought the casting was great. I have to give my MVP to Alyssa and James. I watched the series in one day, people do not know what they are missing if they don’t watch the whole series. It just gets better and better.

    I liked James’s father. Spoiler, he never gave James up, and what kid didn’t want to punch his father in the face one time or another.

    Now I notice that you kind of have a six degrees to Jake Drew. Jake does the music and his brother does the art work. Jimbostank is Jake’s uncle. Is it just a coincidence that Drewbert and Jake Drew both have Drew in their name? Jake has a rapper cousin named Joe, whose father’s name is Moe. Jake has a sister named Alyssa.

  4. We the members of F.A.R.T.S. {Fathers Against Radical TeenS} thought when we read the description End of the fucking world a psychopath teen who wants to kill his girl friend would be the perfect example of what we are fighting for respect. But it turned out to be a complete petard, blew up in our faces,we liked the pilot and watched the complete series. we came to the conclusion that maybe parents and waitresses, pedifiles, might be part of the problem. We decided to change our mission statement
    Alyssa and James made the series, their acting was subpurb, we strongly advise watching the whole series.

  5. Me and my fellow Senior Center members love your podcast, we gather together and watch the pilot, then listen to your podcast and then have a round table discussion on the pilot and the your podcast. We all decided to continue to watch The end of the fucking world and loved it. Even though we didn’t agree on some of your comments, we did agree to make a few comments of our own. We thought Alyssa and James were great actors and made the series very entertaining, we found that the more you watched it the better it got. Thank You

  7. I don’t think the end of the fuckin world is set in yorkshire. The menu at the American restaurant says the best American food in the southern england. Yorkshire is in the north.
