Married with Children “Pilot”
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 male chauvinist hit sitcom Married with Children will be hoisted, or not hoisted: that is the question!
- Petard = bomb
- Hoist a pilot = bad episode
- Not hoist a pilot = good episode
Episode Intro and Announcements: new feature listeners, follow our blog and participate in a pre-recording discussion.
60 Sec Summary: Al Bundy is a pretty unhappy dude. his kids don’t appreciate him, his wife ignores him, the customers at his store walk all over him (pun its a shoe store) and just when things look up for Al, going to the bulls game, his wife stops him in his tracks because they have to hang out with the neighbors that night. Al braves the not dinner (bad neighbors) and somehow ends up back on the couch with his wife.Though he doesn’t get the Bulls game, he gets lucky.
High Points: Peggy, Ed O’neil, and relationship dynamics.
Low Points: Drew didn’t find it funny or clever. Jimbo hated Luke the creep at the shoe store. Mo saw the lack of diversity in the diverse Chi Town.
Crabman Award: by split decision Buck.
MVPs: Peggy, the theme song, and framing the POV through Al.
Dangling Threads of Interest: Super dangled apparently controversial Marcy/liberals/sports discussion. Drew saw the hatred between baby boomers and millennials. Then we touched paid vs unpaid work.
Watch or Rewatch: Jimbo would like to, and Mo said next year. Drew was a strong no.
To Hoist or Not to Hoist?: Not Hoist
