Join David T. Cole, Tara Ariano, Sarah D. Bunting and their valued guests each week for discussion of what's new on TV plus our hall of fame roundtable segment called The Canon, listen as we appoint Winners and Losers Of The Week and of course our ultra competitive TV trivia quiz: Game Time.

    349: Surveilling Law & Order: Organized Crime

    349: Surveilling Law & Order: Organized Crime

    Elliot Stabler has returned from his ignominious exile in...uh, a very nice-sounding job in Italy, and into an SVU spinoff that will find him Taking! His wife's murder! Personally! all over the Mob. Christina Tucker joins us to discuss this new vehicle and what a(n unpleasantly) surprising departure it actually is from the Law & Order model. Around The Dial takes us through Made For Love, Wipeout, Godzilla vs. Kong (on HBO Max! Watch it while you can! A lot!), and The Falcon And The Winter Soldier. Olivia makes the case for Doctor Who's "Silence In The Library" to be inducted into our Canon. Then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a non-regulation Game Time that has us choosing some odd numbers. Get on the Wonder Wheel and crank us up!

    348: Did Pooch Perfect Made Us Want To Flea?

    348: Did Pooch Perfect Made Us Want To Flea?

    Reality-television expert Andy is back to talk about Pooch Perfect, and why you shouldn't sit, stay in front of the show, including awkward hosting by Rebel Wilson, consent issues with dyeing dogs, and a total lack of narrative tension. Matters improved with Around The Dial, as we discussed Genius: Aretha, Superstore, Race To The Center Of The Earth, Tough As Nails, The Bridge, and Housewives in the age of COVID before generating a suite of new Survivor themes for Josh's Extra Credit. After Andy tried to find Starz's The Chair a seat in The Canon, true crime won, CBS lost, and Dan Cassino forced us to answer casting calls during Game Time. Give yourself a treat: it's an all-new Extra Hot Great.

    347: Muppet Thunderdome

    347: Muppet Thunderdome

    Over New Year's, we treated our Patreon supporters to a very important thought experiment: if 27 Smurfs entered Thunderdome to compete in battles to the death, who would be the last Smurf standing? Now, we are turning our minds to the same question...but with Muppets from The Muppet Show. Naturally, we had to bring in an expert to consider the question, which is why Adam Grosswirth of the Muppeturgy podcast is here. Will Fozzie Bear emerge alive from combat with Lew Zealand and Sam the Eagle? Does Camilla the Chicken peck her way out of battle with Sweetums and Scooter? Listen as we plumb the depths of these philosophical questions and so many more!

    346: Is Waffles + Mochi The Cream Of The Crop?

    346: Is Waffles + Mochi The Cream Of The Crop?

    We're thrilled the third time was the charm for our guest Alison Herman, as we all dug into the pro-cooking kids' show from the Obama-tainment industrial complex, Waffles & Mochi. We talked about "variety" shows for children, whether Mrs. Obama is as stiff as Mochi is adorable, and supplemental tomato facts before going Around The Dial with Step Up: High Water, kid 90, Allen vs. Farrow, Greek, Last Chance U: Basketball, and famous original 9-1-1. Dave hoped a first-season episode of Warrior had a fighting chance to get into the Canon. British divorces won, American engagements lost, and we all struggled to see the answers in Tara's non-regulation Game Time. Put a potato in some formalwear and join us for an all-new Extra Hot Great.

    345: Moving Back Into The Loft For The Real World Homecoming: New York

    345: Moving Back Into The Loft For The Real World Homecoming: New York

    As part of the relaunch of CBS All Access as Paramount Plus, the original Season 1 cast of The Real World has reunited in their old Soho loft for a limited series, so we got back together with our former Real World recapper Kim Reed to discuss the series premiere! Also on the Paramount Plus tip, Tara also has to stress that she is not a crackpot for being irate that Oprah's interview with Harry and Meghan is somehow not on it. Around The Dial takes us through Good Girls, an update on Married At First Sight, the WandaVision finale, a Cop Rock tie-in on Last Week Tonight, and the midseason finale of 9-1-1: Lone Star. Lauren uses her Extra Credit to make us assemble a group of TV friends we would want to hang out with -- and who we think would enjoy hanging out with each other; then Sean makes the case for the Nonac induction of ER's Season 4 travelogue "Fathers And Sons." Finally, we crown the week's Winner and Loser, and close up with a Game Time as sticky as it is speedy. After you're done taking Gouda for a quick walk around the block, join us for our latest episode!

    344: Brutal Bridesmaids Isn't Brutal Enough

    344: Brutal Bridesmaids Isn't Brutal Enough

    Brandon is back to talk about last weekend's Brutal Bridesmaids and its strange lack of bloodshed, plus ugly bridal fashion, an emergency male-stripper substitution, and realistic wedding-party cliques. We went Around The Dial with Close Enough, Punky Brewster's reboot, Search Party, Murder Among The Mormons, and Dave's 911 Lone Star report before re-imagining legendary episodes of TV as Lifetime movies in an Extra Credit from David Ellis Dickerson. We dug into a classic episode of The Mole for Canon Consideration, then declared the GLOW team winners and Joss Whedon a huge loser before heading to the DC-verse for Game Time. Chug that Booty Blaster; it's time for an all-new Extra Hot Great.
