    381: Analyzing The Shrink Next Door

    381: Analyzing The Shrink Next Door

    Returning guest Dave Roth got on the couch with us for The Shrink Next Door, the Apple TV adaptation of the Wondery podcast of the same name. We discussed the pacing, whether the show needed more jokes and less attention to production-design details, and the very obviously not New York light on the outdoor sets. Did true-crime "expert" Buntsy feel differently from the rest of the panel? Later, we went Around The Dial with Yellowjackets, SNL, Evil, and The Curse Of Von Dutchbefore popping on our fezzes for a Lodge 49 Canon submission from Lisa. Annie Live! won, Terry Crews lost, and we tried to keep it 100 with some creative arithmetic in Game Time. Bail on your second bar mitzvah early and listen to an all-new Extra Hot Great.

    380: Debating The New Head Of The Class

    380: Debating The New Head Of The Class

    The latest high school-based '80s sitcom to get a revival is HBO Max's 2021 take on Head Of The Class, so Daniel MacEachern -- a fan of the original in its day -- has joined us to talk about whether it's a pass or fail! Around The Dial takes us through Season 2 of Frayed, an update on Married At First Sight, Deutschland 89, Yellowstone, The Great British Bake Off (or Baking Show, depending on where you are), Project Runway, and the findings of the TV Holiday Corridor Committee. Tara explains why she is NOT a crackpot to think Rick was funnier before his lines got subtitled on Big Mouth. Danny presents the Ted Lasso episode "Trent Crimm: The Independent" for the Canon. Then we name the week's Winner and Loser and close out with a Game Time that has us contemplating celebrity mortality. Get out your notebook -- do kids still take those to class?! -- and listen!

    379: EHG Listener Fall Forcening

    Your co-hosts weren't feeling that psyched about any of this week's TV premieres -- sorry, Judy Justice on IMDbTV -- so we invited our Patreon supporters to pitch and then vote on TV episodes for us to discuss under the rubric Fall Forcenings. Thus we are going in on L.A. Law's "Good To The Last Drop" with guest Adam Grosswirth, who originally watched it as a pre-teen and...learned a lot about hysterectomies and their possible side effects? Around The Dial takes us through Insecure, Queens, The Big Leap, The Good Wife, and The Good Fight. Adam makes the case for Max Headroom's series premiere, "Blipverts," to be inducted into The Canon. Then after an extra-spooky Winner and Loser, it's on to a Game Time that doesn't overstay its welcome. Look out: it's a new episode of Extra Hot Great!

    378: Investigating Inside Job

    Netflix's new animated series Inside Job posits a world in which basically every conspiracy theory you've ever seen on Facebook is real; John Ramos returns to discuss whether it's worth exposing the NSA to it via the recording device that's always running in your phone! Around The Dial takes us through the third seasons of Succession and You, and the second season of We're Here. Tara takes a hard stance on when holiday episodes should air. Erica makes a case for Brooklyn Nine-Nine's "Casecation" to be inducted into the Nonac. Then we crown the week's Winners and Loser before getting into a Non-Regulation Game Time that's a little two-dimensional. Take a break from monitoring your Bigfoot traps and join us!

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!
