    408: Enrolling In Lovestruck High

    Some maniac got the idea to throw a bunch of British adults (and one Irish adult) into a fake American high school set and make them date each other in the manner of teen movie characters; some other maniacs decided to discuss this brand-new offering from Amazon Prime Video on this podcast, and we've brought back Brandi Brown to join us! Around The Dial takes us through Hacks, New Scandinavian Cooking, and Naked City. Tara pitches the Shrill episode "WAHAM" for induction into the Canon. Then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a Game Time that will have you under its spell. The bell is ringing, so find a seat in homeroom and join us for our latest podcast!

    EEHG 160: Titulus Deest Memento Quaeso Titulum Creare Antequam Conveniant
    2071 years ago today, January 7th, the Senate of Rome decreed that Caesar would be declared a public enemy unless he disbanded his army.
    In 'celebration' we each bring two TV entities (show, characters, networks, etc) to the floor that have not quite crossed the Rubicon. Explain why they are on the precipice and the terms they would have to meet to avoid bring declared enemies of the TV state by the EHG senate.

    406: Boldly Going With Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    406: Boldly Going With Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

    We're joined on the bridge this week by ATV Podcast's Andrew Cunningham, to talk about the latest addition to the Star Trek family, Paramount+'s Strange New Worlds: the benefits of procedural narrative, the Shatnerian properties of Anson Mount, and horny Spock. Then we transported ourselves Around The Dial with I Love That For You, Our Flag Means Death, and B-B-B-B-Bosch: Legacy, and listener Keira hoped to transport the lazily crappish series finale of The Good Wife into the EHG Nonac. Johnny Weir won, Tara's soap predictions lost, and someone got a major lift from Tube Tunes 10 in Game Time. Grab your universal translator and beam up the latest all-new Extra Hot Great.

    405: TV Mom Thunderdome

    Mother's Day 2022 is nearly upon us, and if you haven't made a brunch reservation by this point, you're probably screwed. However, we have made something for you that you can pass on to Mom that's much better than an omelet and a macaroni collage: it's the TV Mom Thunderdome! We have selected 27 TV mothers to face off in a series of three-combatant elimination rounds. By the end of the episode, we will have determined which is the mother to end all mothers, which we will know for sure because she ended all the other mothers. Listen to find out if your favorite TV mom can go the distance:

    403: Better Call Saul One More Time

    403: Better Call Saul One More Time

    Our longtime Better Call Saul correspondent Will Leitch returns along with BCS to discuss the first episodes of the show's final season. Which moments made us think, "Ah yes, our show is back"? How have we revised our predictions on what happens to Kim Wexler? When and where will we see Walter White and Jesse Pinkman as the story comes to a close? And can we please get Lalo Babies to happen? After a quick gold-potty break, we went Around The Dial with Russian Doll, The First Lady, Just One Kiss, Severance, Winning Time, The Tournament(ACK!), and When Calls The Heart, before Mike S. asked us to assign aughts TV characters their own podcasts for Extra Credit. Will got real meta with his Canon presentation of the third-season Mr. Show finale, celebrity real estate won and Tyra lost, and we all had to reverse course for a Twin Peaks-ian Game Time. Before you throw that life-size cut-out of yourself in the pool, listen to this all-new episode of Extra Hot Great!

GuyIsDelightful ,

This has been my favorite podcast for years now.

The show is consistently entertaining. I totally agree with some of the stuff they say, and totally reject other things, but the discussion is always enlightening and fun. The hosts are uniformly excellent. It’s just fun, if you’re a person who really enjoys a Viva Laughlin joke, or wants to talk about nuances of Debra Messing’s messiness this century.

Ahmedbright ,

Great show

Finally found the lovely Sara Bunting with her beautiful voice and narration, missed her a lot since The Blotter Presents stopped unfortunately, great show

Dbacksgirl177 ,

Will always follow

I’ve been around since Dawson’s Wrap and tomatonation, they’re awesome!
