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 Around The Dial with Nine Perfect Strangers, Messyness, I Think You Should Leave With Tim Robinson, and Unforgotten before Doug tasked us with adding a Russian Roulette-style trapdoor to a TV moment. Sarah wouldn't let the bird rest in her Canon presentation for a fifth-season Cheersepisode; true crime won and Mike Richards lost; and the truth was once again stranger than fiction in a Game Time animé sequel. Don't pine for a crumpled podcast; listen to this shiny new episode of Extra Hot Great.

Show Notes


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
