TV on the Internet, Episode 7: Pilotpalooza!, Part 2 *Glee Sound!*

Our seventh episode is, in my humble opinion, our best episode on a technical level yet. We take a look at the top 15 pilots of the development season with the help of the TV Mad Man and we review the pilot for Fox's new high school drama Glee. Also, our top ten shows of the week. Hopefully, the e-mail exchange is more interesting this week than it was last week. Thanks for all your comments and criticism. They're helping us make the show better. If you like us, please review us on iTunes. We WILL take out the Official Lost Podcast! We WILL!

We're available on iTunes, or you can check us out at Podcast Alley, Podcast Pickle or the TV on the Internet libsyn page.

The song this week is "Story" by Great Northern. His full album is worth a download on iTunes, or Amazon MP3.

Clips are from Parks & Recreation (episode: "Boys Club," script by Greg Daniels and Michael Schur) Glee (episode: "Pilot," script by Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan and Brad Falchuk), NCIS (episode: "Legend, Part 1," script by Shane Brennan), Heroes (episode: "An Invisible Thread," script by Tim Kring), Chuck (episode: "Chuck Vs. the Ring," script by Allison Adler and Chris Fedak), In Treatment (episode: "April: Week 4," script by Sarah Treem) and Star Trek (episode: The City on the Edge of Forever," script by Harlan Ellison).


I call Ryan Murphy the creator of Glee, but he's really the co-creator with Ian Brennan and Brad Falchuk.

A Podcast Recommendation:

I've been really enjoying some of the story podcasts out there, and if you're a fan of horror fiction, there's no better than Pseudopod.

Loved the show this week!

I am ridiculously excited for Glee. I didn't know the episode in a few weeks was just a "preview" and I have to wait until fall for additional episodes. Booooooooo.

Breaking Bad is fantastic. AMC is really doing a great job with their original programming.

I accidentally got spoiled for the Alpha reveal on Dollhouse but that's my own fault. Darn iPod shuffle and its terrible fast forward feature. ;)
