Good idea but took a turn to boredom. Need more Casting Call less pilots.
I listened to the episodes up to picking the finalists And then there were 3. I didn't really love, or like very much, any of them. I liked the death show the least. Maybe if I was in my 30s and it seemed really far away. So I've skipped past the pilot episodes having heard aboout 5 awful minutes of the death pilot. I've heard enough about death talk on Frontline and such. Lots of the very same thing. I don't know where the judges were that they don't seem to havre heard those shows. As for me, I primarily listen to non-comedic true crime or partners talking about true crime, more like a particular crime. I enjoy tow people who get along great discussing or bantering about the issue without taking away from the main story. Asking or speculating about the case answering what are obvious questions for us true crime listeners. But funny and true crime is not for me, at all. I started out with This American Life and Ivery much like the variety and storytelling/storyteller. The stories are unique reality. Problem with that show is that the episodes are short. I think the ideal episode is between 50-90 minutes. Well, I'll find out who the winner is now and maybe I'll follow up but likely not. Eould have liked a longer Casting Call show itself.Read full review »

Great idea for a podcast. And I wish all the finalists could have their own shows made. They were all so interesting!
