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…
 
The talented EHG Assist team tasked the panel -- plus returning guest Jeff Drake! -- with talking about shows and episodes that shouldn't have worked, but somehow did. We began our theme episode with the late-'70s satire Soap. Do the problematic parts justify the hilarity around them? Is some of the bad acting and slow pacing an homage of sorts to …
 
When schedulers at the Food Network foiled our original plans for this episode, our returning guest Will Ellis rolled with the punches and joined us to talk about Netflix's bizarre new dating show, Sexy Beasts! Around The Dial takes us through the new season of Married At First Sight, The Real Housewives Of Potomac, Married To Medicine, and Search …
 
AppleTV+'s newest musical series, Schmigadoon!, strands a couple of contemporary big-city doctors in a strange town lost in time, requiring them to find their true loves before they can cross the bridge home. Did we true-love it, or did we feel trapped? New guest Sean Pflueger joins us to talk about it! Around The Dial takes us through American Hor…
 
Nadia Chaudhury of Eater Austin joins us for the first time to talk about the second time around for Gossip Girl. Does the 2021 reboot know who it's for? Did the original benefit from the suspense surrounding Gossip Girl's identity? And will we keep watching even if Tavi Gevinson's acting doesn't improve? After Gordon Lightfoot Cole dropped in to m…
 
It's a holiday week: time for a good old-fashioned Forcening, in which each of your EHG regulars makes another one watch a TV episode or movie. This time, we're acknowledging July 4th by obliging one another to watch shows with "America" in the title, and Tara's first up, forcing Sarah to watch 2000's short-lived, extremely derivative, stupidly enj…
 
Disney Plus's latest series for teens and tweens is the very puzzle-y The Mysterious Benedict Society, based on a beloved novel, and Leigh-Ann Jackson is here to talk about how well it works! Around The Dial takes us through In Treatment, The Good Fight, Javi!, Flack, the (sort of) final season of B-B-B-B-Bosch, CSI, and Derry Girls! Craig and Cour…
 
The latest new series from AppleTV+ is Physical, starring Rose Byrne as an aerobics addict in 1981 San Diego; Jeb Lund joins us to discuss whether the first three episodes left us wanting more, or...wanting more of GLOW (R.I.P.). Around The Dial takes us through Cruel Summer, Holey Moley, Exterminate All The Brutes, American Barbecue Showdown, the …
 
Richard Lawson of Vanity Fair is back to talk about the latest product off the Marvel industrial complex assembly line: Disney+'s Loki. We discussed everything from Religion 101 to DB Cooper to mid-century production design to canonical gender identity -- but should you make TIME (...sorry) for the show? Then we went Around The Dial with Younger, S…
 
Netflix joins Amazon in boldly dropping a soft sci-fi story about an extremely contagious disease outbreak mid-covid pandemic...but at least Sweet Tooth, unlike Utopia, also has as its lead character a very cute little deer boy? New guest Santiago Melli-Huber joins us to talk about it. Around The Dial takes us to the premiere of We Are Lady Parts o…
 
Writer and co-host of The Nod Brittany Luse joins us for a double shot of summer TV fare, starting with NBC's well-hosted but incorrectly constructed Small Fortune. We like the dioramas; we're not sure about the durability of the games (or future guests). Then we ducked under the yellow tape to look at FOX's Crime Scene Kitchen, which isn't as bad …
 
With summer nearly upon us, we're dusting off a format we haven't done in a while, looking at the premieres that are coming in the weeks and months ahead and each choosing one title we're into; one we SHOULD be into but aren't; and one NO ONE should be into. Joining us for this very important work is longtime listener, first-time guest Stacy Lambe!…
 
Dave died so we're slapping together two Patreon episodes for your listening pleasure. 090: Dave Forces Everyone To Watch Thunder In Paradise S01.E13: Queen Of Hearts: Once upon a time there were two ex-Navy SEALs living in Florida. Then a whip bull-cracking Terry Funk visited riding on the hood of a monster truck. Also, here's The Queen Of England…
 
Slate TV critic Willa Paskin is back to talk about Peacock's girl-group-comeback addition to the Tina Fey-verse, Girls5Eva. Did the panel's opinions on the show's quality harmonize? Is the bubblegum/TRL world of 20 years ago a familiar song? Does the thin writing of Busy Philipps's character hit a bum note? Has Sarah already started blaming that Wo…
 
A while back, we put out a call for six-word pitches to program a whole episode of this podcast, and our listener Heather was the victor with "Nice British People Doing Nice Things." As a result, she has slotted in (virtually) every show you will hear us talk about in this episode, for which we are joined by returning guest Alex Collins! First, we …
 
Jessica Liese is here to talk about a brand-new, brand-content competition reality show from Hulu -- Exposure, in which professional photographers compete in irrelevant-to-their-strengths "influencer" challenges while rookie hosts Cole Walliser and Cat Jimenez make terrible photo puns. The problem isn't so much the Samsung-fluffing; it's that the s…
 
Dr. Orna Guralnik has returned to Showtime to work with a whole new crop of troubled partners in a new season of Couples Therapy, and Vulture's Kathryn VanArendonk -- one of the show's biggest boosters -- has returned to our podcast to yell about it! (Positively!) Around The Dial takes us through Younger, a new Mythic Quest special, PBS's Philly D.…
 
Doing The Most With Phoebe Robinson joined the ranks of "rich people hanging out with each other" shows last week, and Here For It author R. Eric Thomas joined US to talk about the 2 Dope Queens co-host's foray into TV, including clunky animations, guest chemistry, and whether the animals in the pilot were too well-behaved. Dave was Not A Crackpot …
 
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 & Ordermodel. Around …
