Anonymous asked:

I love your podcast :] Will you be covering the "lost pilot" The Time Element?

Uff, that’s a big question. We recently debated whether or not we would in the context of whether or not we’d be halfway through the Pwn when we hit 78 episodes.  I’ll put us down for a maybe at this point. -J.

Requesting that you review more TZ episodes with female protagonists. Or at least break up the dude parade now and then. I mean, "Ring-a-ding Girl" is...good, but EVEN BETTER would be "Midnight Sun," "Mirror Image," "The Hitch-hiker," or "The Lateness of the Hour." Thanks!

Duly noted.  We’ve gotten multiple requests for The Midnight Sun, so you’ll be happy to know we’re gonna have a go at that episode next.  Thanks for listening!

You guys should do "The Mirror". It's a hilarious third season episode with a young Peter Falk doing a proto-Tony Montana. Bad beards, craptastic accents and Castro in-jokes abound.

We’ll be sure to add it to our list.  Thanks, Comrade!

dd-hoffman asked:

Two things: A) The Hot-or-Nots are for sure the ticket to rising from the murky, undesirable third slot to the much more distinguished second, and B) I was hoping you guys might cover An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge. Also, I just want you both to know I feel a special and probably misplaced personal connection to the "boner" clip from my first request. It's clearly the only reason I'm a devout "Pwnie".

Good to hear from one of our earliest supporters!  We will add Owl Creek to our list.  And where would the podcast be without our beloved boner clip?  Maybe in first place in the heated TZ podcast wars… But that can’t be helped now.  Thanks for listening all this time!

Have you guys done 'The Big, Tall Wish' yet? It's one of the many overlooked ones that's pretty good not great.

That sounds like a review for our podcast.  We haven’t covered it yet, but will add it to the list.

In our hee-larious episode on “Death’s Head Revisited,” we discussed the Eichmann trial and the phrase the “banality of evil.”  Coined by Hannah Arendt in her book on the subject, the basic idea is that Eichmann was an unthinking bureaucrat who rubber-stamped the Holocaust out of dullness and obligation.  That concept has been challenged a lot over the years, and a new book recently translated into English presents maybe the most convincing rebuttal of Arendt yet.  Read about it in the NYTimes here.

Congrats to Friend of the PwnTM Gabe Gronli, who just won an Emmy for his writing on the Colbert Report.  Click here to listen to his guest spot, riffing on our “A World of His Own” episode, which I believe now also has won an Emmy by association.
