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!

Corrections:

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.
