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: Killjoys‘ “A Glitch in the System”
Tread Perilously opens Total Request Live — its semiannual Patreon subscriber request month — with an episode of Killjoys called “A Glitch in the System.”
When Dutch and John find an abandoned freighter in an asteroid belt, they believe it to be an easy salvage. But soon they discover they are not alone on board and that the ship’s mission was anything but harmless. Meanwhile, D’avin’s memory issues are not helped when he befriends one of the people they find on the vessel: a suspicious custodian answering to the name “Hogan.” Will he discover the meaning of Red 17 or will the Killjoys risk their lives to escape his questions?
Erik and Justin are both enamored with star Hannah John-Kamen. Erik learns to tell the Ashmore Twins apart. The Trivago guy and the Event Horizon haunt the proceedings. The current state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Secret Invasion are litigated. David from Prometheus barges in. Other sci-fi films are also discussed. The pair advise against deep space research vessels. Dylan Baker emerges as the preferred Lizard. The rapport between Aaron Ashmore’s John and Luke Macfarlane’s D’avin gets praise. The pair will never stop being angry about Battlestar Galactica, and they accidentally create a new CBS detective show.
