Extra Hot Great: This Week In TV

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 YellowjacketsSNLEvil, 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.

Support EHG on Patreon

The EHG gang have been recording this podcast for almost a decade now. In podcasting terms, that makes us positively Methuselahian. Since the start of EHG, our listeners have asked if we had a tip jar or donation system and we'd look at each other and say surely that is a joke, people don't pay other people to do podcasts. We'd email them back "Ha ha ha, good one, Chet" and go about our business. Now we are told this is a real thing that real nice people do. Value for value? In today's topsy turvy world? It's madness but that good kind of madness, like when you wake up at 3:15am and clean your house. Or something. In all seriousness, we are humbled by your continued prodding to get a Patreon page up for EHG and here it is! Extra Hot Great on Patreon

406: Boldly Going With Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

We're joined on the bridge this week byATV Podcast's Andrew Cunningham, to talk about the latest addition to theStar Trekfamily, Paramount+'sStrange New Worlds: the benefits of procedural narrative, the Shatnerian properties of Anson Mount, and horny Spock. Then we transported ourselves Around The Dial withI Love That For You,Our Flag Means Death, andB-B-B-B-Bosch: Legacy, and listener Keira hoped to transport the lazily crappish series finale ofThe 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.

Mother's Day 2022 is nearly upon us, and if you haven't made a brunch reservation by this point, you'reprobablyscrewed. However, we have made something for you that you can pass on to Mom that'smuchbetter 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.
