The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" have watched many bad movies but now they're looking into the world of bad unaired TV, pilots that never made it to your television set because somebody realized, rightly, that they were awful (or were they???). The guys talk, as usual, about an assortment of topics both intellectual and low-brow as Ben has a moral crisis of whether he should go to the same crude joke wells so readily. You be the judge, folks.
Available on iTunes.
Episode 140 includes:
-Hasbro Cinematic Universe segues into a remembrance of TNN, the weird return of Ren and Stimpy, and the new Rita Repulsa.
-Ben is shocked and amazed to find himself actually sort of enjoying "The Boss."
-Ben attempts to name ten Spanish names on the spot. Stay for "Lil' Pogo, the investment banker."
-Ben and Nate disagree over "Midnight Special" and then somehow shift into a "Foxcatcher" impression about repopulating that "Interstellar" planet with Anne Hathaway. So... yeah.
-This Week's Pitch -- None!
-Bonus Discussion -- What the Hell Did We Just Watch? TV Pilots!
-The guys explore a world of failed TV pilots based upon TV and feature films including "Clerks," "Driving Miss Daisy," and a 21st century "Mr. Ed."
