The traditional concept of jobs is that it is supposed to earn you money, give stability, secure future, ensure regular growth and so on and so forth. But, these words are nothing but a trap for a life full of monotony, no challenges, no risk, and no surprises. In other words, doing something from which you do not derive reasons enough to flash a spontaneous smile or laugh hard unless you are required to fake a laugh on your boss’ poor jokes. Happiness is something that has nothing really to do with your job. As long as, you earn good money you are considered happy. Yes, welcome to the real life where you are what your job describes you as.

Pilot episode is the one that determines the fate of any TV series. This standalone episode is used to sell the entire show to some TV network.

Sounds cool and exciting, isn’t it!!
