Your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew continue to try their hands at a little TV Pilot Analysis by playing The $25,000 Pyramid with lifelong friends, Will & Grace.  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 in the late 1990s as we discuss:

  • The real-life inspiration for the show
  • What other programme had the executives at NBC concerned
  • We talk about the power of television to bring about positive changes
  • Charles Burrows and the legacy he has as a television director
  • We ask which show had the better pilot script, Will & Grace or Cheers
  • Ian makes some commentary on physical acting - not usually his go-to
  • We remark about how much plot they're able to cover in 22 minutes and why that is
  • Georgia gives us an update on if she's still watching Cheers or Spin City
  • Would we ground the Will & Grace pilot or is it Cleared for Takeoff?
