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: Evil‘s “C Is for Cop”
Tread Perilously‘s Patreon subscriber request month continues with a look at Evil via the episode called “C Is for Cop.”
When a New York police officer shoots a stranded Black motorist in the middle of the night, he claims demonic possession as his defense. The team is soon called in to investigate. It leads David almost immediately to the officer’s wrist tattoo — a symbol that correlates with one of the sigils. Is there a cabal within the department (and television shows about police) going back a century? Meanwhile, Ben confronts his night terrors (sort of) and Kristen tries to hide her part in LeRoux’s death.
Justin is once again confronted by a secret show, and because of its nature, comparisons to Locke & Key become inevitable. Erik proves incapable of saying the name “Katja” correctly. Justin lauds the cast while Erik gives credit to Christine Lahti for a specialty skill. Justin stumps for Tremors. The Shield is once again lauded. The Predator is not. A discussion about “as you know” dialogue breaks out. Erik tries to be complimentary to Ridley Scott while Justin considers the real reason why recent MCU movies don’t quite work. Gods are invoked, Gul Dukat gets referenced, and Half Dome becomes a higher power.
