Tread Perilously – ‘Supertrain: Where Have You Been, Billy Boy’

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

This Week: Supertrain‘s “Where Have You Been, Billy Boy”

Tread Perilously celebrates its 400th podcast with the final episode of Supertrain — “Where Have You Been, Billy Boy.”

When the FBI arranges for a fugitive transfer aboard Supertrain, Randall gets anxious. But will it matter to an aggressive magazine writer, a pregnant woman, a newlywed couple, and an old man when the fugitive — who continues to maintain his innocence — accidentally takes them hostage in the dining car? Will Randall be able to handle the situation? Will Flood make things worse? And will a small town sheriff turn Supertrain into a passenger liner of blood? Meanwhile, Penny gets accosted by a traveler.

Erik momentarily forgets Skipjack. Justin hears the laugh track for the first time … again! The sound editors who added the canned laughter finally get memorialized with a sketch. Penny is chosen as Supertrain‘s series MVP. Justin recalls the train is nuclear powered and supersonic. A discussion about airplane disaster movies breaks out. The pair also stump for Carnival of Souls. Justin finds a new role for Weird Baby Man. Surprising guest stars lead to many potential future podcasts. Rue McClanahan makes a surprising appearance. A final analysis of Supertrain is made, and the ghost of Bob Crane haunts the proceedings.
