Tread Perilously is a weekly “worst of TV” podcast. Watching the worst episodes of popular shows, hosts Erik Amaya and Justin Robinson attempt to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on its most off-key moments.

Latest Episodes

Tread Perilously -- Supertrain: Superstar

Tread Perilously's Grab Bag month gets derailed by one of the worst episodes of Supertrain ever aired by the National Broadcasting Company. An episode they had to call "Superstar." When Hollywood con-man Jack Hogarth (Dennis Dugan) gets in bed with a mafioso-turned-producer, he boards Supertrain to convince his ex-wife, a bankable star, to appear in his production of "The Lady Was a Cop." Along the way, we meet street urchins, an impressive set of comedy goons, a former hairstylist sleeping his way into Hollywood, and an adorable old lady with a passion for mysteries played by Sylvia Sidney. But will Hogarth find himself thrown of the train by paid assassins or sharing a drink with them in the bar car? Erik vows to come back to Dugan's TV series, Richie Brockelman, Private Eye. He and Justin discuss the merits of working with Adam Sandler. Erik declares Jack Hogarth to be the worst Supertrain protagonist he's seen so far. Justin declares Sylvia Sydney the MVP of the episode, even if he goes on and on about the deadfaced comedy goon played by Timothy Carey. He also asks to do an episode Mrs. Columbo. Erik offers a geography corner segment about the former MGM studio lot. Justin gets confused when Erik tells him Archie Andrews was mauled by a bear and the secret history of Bo Hopkins' character is revealed.

The adventure takes Manimal to a bar by the docks where plays pirate, a north Atlantic island filled with sinkholes, and the depths of Sea Dog's shaggy sea stories. Erik and Justin determines that Jason Todd sucks. They get their from a discussion about Corky. Erik offers a brief review of Dark Phoenix; suggesting Onslaught would've been a better story to adapt.

Tread Perilously -- Starman: The Return

Tread Perilously begins a Grab Bag Month early with their first look at Starman, a sequel series to John Carpenter's 1984 classic film. When Starman receives a telepathic message from his son Scott Hayden, he returns to Earth just as Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Paul Forrester dies on the side of a fictional volcano in Washington state. Taking Paul's form, Starman soon finds Scott Hayden in a Seattle youth home, but immediately discovers 14 years have passed since his first visit to Earth and his son knows nothing about him. Meanwhile, Federal Security Agent George Fox never stopped looking for Starman and manages to appropriate enough funding to locate Scott. Will he get to him before Starman can convince him of their bond? Erik once again mispronounces the name of director Charles S. Dubin. Justin questions why television adaptations of films generally reboot the premise. They debate the merits of jellyfish as the ultimate form of evolution and recap the plot of the film. I...
