This month on the Pilots Club, we watched the first episode of Cable Girls, a 2017 Netflix original series from Spain. It’s the 1920s in Madrid, and hundreds of women are vying for jobs as switchboard operators at the national telecommunications company, one of the few jobs where a woman can establish a career and independence for herself. Each applicant has a different reason for being there — to escape her family, to please her family, or to secretly infiltrate the company and steal its money.
The Whatnauts Pilot’s Club is a podcast all about the first episodes of television shows and the many reasons why they may or may not be worth a watch. Every month we pick a different pilot episode to watch and then discuss it here on our show. We release these episodes first and foremost to our Patreon supporters on our $3 tier and above. Then, two years later we release these episodes to a wider audience on a public feed. So if you wanna catch up on two years worth of episodes, our Patreon is the place to do that.
