The Pretender Episode Guide
A trip down memory lane.
Episode Guide |FX
The original inspiration of this was the fact that the scheduled air date fell on the night before the Super Bowl. As writers are want to do, we started talking, and eventually found ourselves talking, not about the game, but the blockbuster, super-colossal over-priced commercials they make to run on the telecast. It seemed funny at the time and thus became one of our few stabs at being intentionally silly in places, poking fun at the ad business, Super Bowl hype, and the TV production world.
We had particular fun with the Igor monster (that sets up the Fenigor character for the last two episodes of the season) and the trail of riddles that Jarod leads Miss P down.
We had a great explosion, some nifty car stunts and some funny gizmos, all of which add up to a fun offbeat episode.
