Around The Dial takes us through American Auto, Abbott Elementary, Ozark, Season 2 of Cheer, Peacemaker, 9-1-1: Lone …

Resident Amazing Race expert Jessica returns to the guest chair to talk about the legendary reality show's unique thirty-third season: how it handled an 18-month interruption, whether we expect more from its production than we do from other shows, the true-crime connection that's somehow charming, and whom we expect to win. We went Around The Dial …
 
So...the original plan was to watch the 1979 miniseries Backstairs At The White House -- even though, at nine hours, it's longer than some actual series are these days. Then Dave and Tara got less than half an hour into it and pulled the plug. Dan -- who did watch it -- tells us what we missed, but then we just roll on past that to a trio of Non-Re…
 
From December 25, 2020: We challenged our listeners to get us to 1000 Patreon supporters by December 15, and they went above and beyond. Your reward? This drunk episode. Author, screenwriter, and sake enthusiast Pamela Ribon joins us as we discuss Bridgerton, the first Shonda Rhimes show to hit Netflix. Which of us found its 1813 society romances c…
 
Being The Ricardos, Aaron Sorkin's latest project as a big-screen writer-director is...also very much a small-screen project, so we are claiming it. Look, it's about TV (specifically, the stars and making of I Love Lucy) and it's kind of on TV (members can stream it for free on Amazon Prime Video), so IT COUNTS. Anyway: joining us for the discussio…
 
Novelists and Go Fug Yourself editors Heather and Jessica are back to talk about the Sex & The City...update? reboot? whatever you call it, you can also call it And Just Like That. And you can ALSO call it "tone-deaf," "cringey," and "a clumsy character assassination," as the legendary HBO sit-rom-com returns with a bunch of new characters, and one…
 
HBO's latest British miniseries import is Landscapers, telling the story about Christopher and Susan Edwards and their, er, unorthodox gardening habits; we tell you whether we thought it was, heh, fertile ground for drama. Around The Dial takes us through Annie Live!, Money Heist, Baptiste, and Hawkeye. Elenore pitches the Drunk History episode "Ci…
 
Sarah and Tara are busy eating turkey so Dave assembled a crew of Wheel Of Time experts to try to explain what the hell he just watched. Join Dan Cassino, Sean Pflueger and Jim Durr as they discuss Amazon's adaption of the epic series then stick around for a spicy game time! Discussion Tweet at us @ExtraHotPodcast on Twitter We are @ExtraHotGreat o…
 
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 …
 
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 B…
 
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 watc…
 
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 t…
 
004: That's Just Wrong Our patron Eric Akawie challenges us to name shows that got Wrong Spinoffs, and to correct history by proposing spinoffs that would have been Right! 081: The Lowest Of Decks Sarah asked: What about creating Star Trek: Lower Decks-style shows for other series? Which low-powered employees from an existing TV show would make for…
 
We knew Cyd, like Tara and Dave, had just done a rewatch of the original-flavor CSI, so we were really glad she could join us to break down CBS's new reboot of its network-changing old favorite (which...only went off the air like six years ago?). We talked about whether we'll keep watching for "The New Class" after l'affaire Hodges gets resolved, w…
 
The SCU (Sopranos Cinematic Universe) expands with the release, in theaters and on HBO Max, of the prequel film The Many Saints Of Newark, and Rolling StoneSenior TV Critic/certified Sopranologist Alan Sepinwall is here to discuss it with us! Around The Dial takes us through The Problem With Jon Stewart, Our Kind Of People, Maid, and the Working Gi…
 
We're so grateful Nick Rheinwald-Jones jumped through a green Jurassic vagina with us to watch La Brea, NBC's latest attempt at a sci-fi dystopia -- but this one involves a sinkhole in "Los Angeles," were-dogs, and Jon Seda. Should you watch the pilot just for the dumb crappy fun of it all? Or is it too stuck in that 2006 "we can be the next Lost" …
 
Nearly two years after its first-season premiere, The Morning Show is back on AppleTV+, and its #1 fan Christina Tucker has returned to talk about all the delightful madness! Around The Dial takes us through The Premise, Doogie Kamealoha, M.D., and the new seasons of Sex Education and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Amelia asks us to poach good …
 
FX on Hulu's take on comics series Y: The Last Man has finally made it to air -- and Taylor Cole has finally made it over from The Great American Pop Culture Quiz Show to talk about it with us! How is the show different from the comics? Can Diane Lane's hair still be a national treasure if her roots are a plot point? And does a certain Hero need to…
 
Since the third season of American Crime Story revolves around Bill Clinton's late-'90s impeachment scandal, we could think of no better guest to join us in discussing it than Dan Rogge, noted co-writer of the mid-'00s theatrical production Monica! The Musical. And we got him! Around The Dial takes us through A.P. Bio, Money Heist, Black Monday, an…
 
EEHG 102: Sarah Forces Everyone To Watch Alfred Hitchcock Presents S03.E01: The Glass Eye Join us for the third-season premiere of Sarah's go-to mid-century anthology series, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, featuring Captain Kirk, Jessica Tandy, ventriloquism Deadheads, spinster-ist propaganda, and a hall-of-fame crappy TV kid. EEHG 122: Dave Forces Eve…
 
University of California (NOT California University...you'll see) faculty member Bobby Krut returns to talk about Sandra Oh's new English-department half-hour dramedy on Netflix, The Chair. We discussed the almost-perfect pacing and casting, underrating Amanda Peet at your peril, whether Holland Taylor should get a spinoff, and more. Then we went A…
 
With your co-host panel still smarting over the death of Netflix's wrestling dramedy GLOW, Starz has dared to bring its own scripted wrestling project to the screen in the form of Michael Waldron's Heels; Joe Reid -- a fan of both wrestling AND TV -- joins us to talk about it! Around The Dial takes us through Reservation Dogs, The White Lotus (brie…
 
Kamille Washington of the Unfriendly Black Hotties podcast is back to discuss Mr. Corman, a (possibly too) slow-building show about a musician turned grade-school teacher/anxiety sufferer and his angst. Did star/producer/crafty coordinator Joseph Gordon-Levitt take on too many jobs -- and not enough fresh story? Why couldn't the show be about Artur…
