    337: Big Dickinson Energy

    337: Big Dickinson Energy

    The regular panelists had to forge ahead without esteemed colleague Kathryn VanArendonk in our discussion of Dickinson's second season; that's the bad news. The good news is, we all like Apple TV's imagining of poet Emily Dickinson's life and loves with lots of swearing and twenty-first-century slang. How DOES the show balance the demands of historical fact with flights of fancy, and not take itself too seriously? And are Season 2's creepy [character spoiler redacted] the key to its success? Later, we went Around The Dial with The Masked Dancer, Everything Is Going Great, Cheers Season 5, Mr. Mayor's debut, and Lupin and other "Pringle mysteries." A new detective franchise won, an old HBO franchise lost, and we continued the episode's verse theme with the Tara-crafted Tube Tunes VII. Pass Nobody an earbud for an all-new Extra Hot Great.

    336: Matlock's Big Bang Plaza

    336: Matlock's Big Bang Plaza

    We're off this week but we've glued together three episode forcening, uh, episodes from our Patreon supporter bonus podcast Extra Extra Hot Great.

    LISTENER FORCENING: THE BIG BANG THEORY
    Patreon supporter Sharon Johnson had us watch The Big Bang Theory S07.E03: "The Scavenger Vortex," writing, "While I'm aware that it's not well thought of among the EHG family, BBT is one of my all-time favorite television shows," and this episode a fave among faves. Did this selection make us come around? Listen and find out! From Aug 21, 2020.

    DAVE FORCES EVERYONE TO WATCH MATLOCK
    We watch the second season episode "Network" in which all the late-80s stars of NBC shine as talking heads on "Entertainment Today." ALF is among them. We have questions. From September 29, 2020

    CO-HOST FORCENING: SHANGRI-LA PLAZA
    After Michael Darling eulogized the ill-fated pilot of Shangri-La Plaza in Los Angeles magazine this August, Tara made a mental note to expose her co-hosts -- and our Patreon supporters! -- to the insanity he described. Finally, it is time for all of us to take that journey! From October 9, 2020.

    334: Finding Out If Enthusiasm For The Stand Is Infectious

    334: Finding Out If Enthusiasm For The Stand Is Infectious

    Stephen King's 1978 novel has already been turned into a miniseries once, but it's time for this generation to get its own, apparently? So CBS All Access has made one, and Roxana Hadadi is joining us to talk about it! Around The Dial takes us through The Flight Attendant, Celebrity IOU, TKTK, The Wilds, and Season 2 of The Mandalorian. Mlle. Caroline presents the Parks & Recreation episode "Recall Vote" for induction to The Canon; then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a Game Time that defies categorization. Make yourself a nice cup of Thera-Flu and join us!

    333: Is Tiny Pretty Things On Point?

    333: Is Tiny Pretty Things On Point?

    First-time guest Kamille joins us for a conversation about Tiny Pretty Things, Netflix's new Center Stage-with-teens ballet thriller (?), and while she watched the whole thing, neither she nor the fulltime panel thinks it's good. But aside from the wretched VO, suspect acting, unwelcome parallels to 13 Reasons Why and decided un-Frenchness of cartoon villain Lauren Holly, is TPT a good time-waster? Not to worry: we found you some definite time-wasters when we went Around The Dial with The Wilds and 12 Dates Of Christmas, panned Deliciousness, and helped you cut down that HBO-documentary backlog with a watch-skip index of recent prestige true crime. We couldn't help but wonder if Sex & The City's fourth-season premiere was the Canon's soulmate. Boots Riley and Jharrel Jerome won (for now), Ellen and Ellen lost (again), and Suley wassailed us with a TV/Christmas song Game Time. Don't let the dorm mother catch you listening to an all-new Extra Hot Great!

    332: Investigating The Hardy Boys

    332: Investigating The Hardy Boys

    Hulu and Canada's kids' broadcaster YTV have brought the world a new adaptation of the nearly-100-year-old boy detectives Frank and Joe Hardy, and we've enlisted Adam Grosswirth to join us in discussing it! A super-sized Around The Dial takes us through Selena: The Series, Nurses, Jingle Jangle, Dolly Parton's Christmas On The Square, the original '70s version of The Hardy Boys, and Gangs Of London. After Joe M. uses his Extra Credit topic to have us write a character-revealing power ballad into an otherwise un-musical show, Adam makes his pitch for the "Fair Is Foul And Foul Is Fair" episode of Slings & Arrows to be inducted into The Canon. We crown the week's Winner and Loser, and close out with a Game Time perfectly tailored (heh heh) to our interests. Get your flashlight and your VERY loud walkie-talkie and listen in!

Best!!!!!

My favourite podcast team.
I listen to all the things you guys put out and I'm a Patreon supporter. I also love game of thrones, raisins and jazz.🤣

Male host ruins the show

The male host Dave is a real curmudgeon and ruins the show. He has an active dislike of all things television and yet he co-hosts a television review podcast. Go figure? The 2 female hosts are intelligent and present interesting critiques. Unfortunately I cannot tolerate Mr Cranky Pants and have unsubscribed.

My favourite podcast

I really enjoy listening to podcasts and I'm pretty sure this one is my favourite. I've been listening to the back-catalogue and I'm slowly catching up to current day episodes.
The hosts are entertaining and funny, and I love playing along with Game Time every week.
If you enjoy consuming too much television, you'll like this one. :)
