Episode #42: This Close “Like I Always Wanted”

This Close pilot episode “Like I Always Wanted”

Welcome to the Pilots and Petards Podcast! This is the podcast with nothing much ado about aircrafts, and potentially everything ado with first episodes of a filmic series. Join Drew, Mo, and Jimbo as they cast judgement and determine if the deaf dramady This Close will be hoisted, or not hoisted: that is the question!, or not hoisted: that is the question!

Cheat Sheet:

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

Follow the blog so you can contribute to the pre-recording discussions. Watch Pose by 17 Sep 2018 and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel by 24 Sep 2018, then give us your feedback to get that petard fame.

Deaf actor-writer-creator duo Shoshannah Stern and Josh Feldman produced an awesome pilot. Check out the Quest for the best and worst pilots ever to see how high This Close gets to the greatest pilot ever End of the Fing World!
