Your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew continue to try their hands at a little TV Pilot Analysis with Boston watering hole where everybody knows your name.  Ian is in the captain's chair and Georgia's in the jumpseat as she's never seen the show.  We're waiting for a flight with a beverage in hand as we discuss: 

  • The casting of the key roles and who almost got the gig as Sam
  • Which Hollywood actor turned down the role of the Coach?
  • Ian and Georgia discuss the difficulty in creating genuine warmth in a show
  • Why was the show set in Boston?
  • Which member of the cast pitched his own role?
  • What's the genius of the joke writing behind the series?
  • Georgia gives her first impressions of the series, having never seen it before
  • Would we ground the Cheers pilot or is it Cleared for Takeoff?
