About Us

Cousins Ania Wilton and Chelsea Pula are discussing everyone's least favorite episode of (most) television series: pilots. Join them as they relive the origins of great TV shows while drinking scotch and sharing family stories.

Latest Episodes

His Dark Materials

EThis week, we're talking about Chelsea's all time favorite trilogy: His Dark Materials. We discuss the original controvery, initial impressions of the new series, and tolerate a bit of nerdiness from Chelsea. This is our first episode that we discussed without watching the rest of the series. His Dark Materials is thick with references to classic literature, art, and philosophy. After the episode, we learned that Lyra and her daemon were partially inspired by "The Lady with an Ermine" painting, which is currently in an art museum in Krakow. View it here. The trilogy has also been compared to Paradise Lost and shares many of its core themes. But the most obscure inspiration for this story is The Blazing World, in which a young woman is able to travel to another world through the North Pole and finds a planet with talking animals (including bears). Special thanks to our brothers, Nick Pula and Ben Wilton, for making this episode possible.

Sabrina, the Teenage Witch

EChelsea and Ania record together in one room for the first time ever, and things only get a little giddy. We share lots of fun facts about the show, discuss the pre-pilot tv movie, and basically just revel in the brilliance that is Salem Saberhagen.

Buffy Bonus: Extra nerdy language edition

EIn this special bonus episode, Ania talks to her etymologist uncle David Wilton about slayer slang... or slayer speak... or joss speak... or whatever you want to call the specific way in which Scoobies and Sunnydale civilians converse with each other. For more etymological entertainment, check out Dave's website Wordorigins.org, or his book Word Myths: Debunking Linguistic Urban Legends

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

EJust in time for spooky season, we present Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Join us as we discuss the original Willow, the cheesy movie, and our mixed feelings toward Xander. Joss Whedon's popular TV drama first aired in 1997 and has since developed something of a cult following. We can't get enough Buffy, so don't worry - we'll be back for part two of this pilot. Joining us this week is special guest and lifelong Buffy fan, Elena Badami.

Special guest Claire Pula joined us to talk about Dollar Princesses, the inspiration for Cora, and more! Besides being our beloved mom (Ania) / aunt (Chelsea), Claire is a history buff and loves Downton Abbey. We also talk about whether Mary is likable as a lead character, how much we hate O'Brien, and whether Mr. Crawley is too progressive.
