Tread Perilously - ‘Scream Queens: Chainsaw’

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: Scream Queens' "Chainsaw"

Tread Perilously's semi-annual Patreon subscriber request month begins its summer edition with a look at the Scream Queens episode called "Chainsaw."

As the university tries to distance itself from the recent deaths, the Red Devil mascot is replaced with Coney, the whimsical soft serve ice cream cone. Meanwhile, Grace and Zayday continue to search for Chanel #2, Chanel #1 discovers a new way to attract Chad Radwell, and Chanel #5 has a spiritual awaken after a sex act. Chad Radwell, meanwhile, convinces his frat brothers that the best way to defeat the Red Devil is to challenge him openly on the street. Will his gambit pay off?

Chad Radwell becomes the character find of 2015. Justin discusses how the show simultaneously takes place in that year and 2005. He also stumbles on the greatest never-made 1980s high school movie. Erik tries to recall the various Scream killers. The pair gets lost in Go for a moment ... again. Pinhead briefly becomes the dean of health at a small, mid-western college. A Riverdale seance occurs. The presence of Lea Michelle is noted while Emma Roberts proves to be the perfect choice for her character. But will executive producer Ryan Murphy's track record prove to be a hindrance in the long run?
