About this Episode

FX has adapted the 2014 vampire mockumentary film What We Do In The Shadows as a TV series: does it have the same bite as the original? Nick Rheinwald-Jones returns to discuss! Around The Dial spins through The Village; Playing House alumni Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair's live UCB improv show; Season 3 of The Good Fight; and commonwealth news spoofs This Time With Alan Partridge and Get Krack!n. Tara celebrates a Taskmaster-related Tiny Triumph before pitching the Frasier episode "The Matchmaker" for induction into The Canon. We crown the week's Winner and Loser, and then close up with a Game Time that challenges us all on our spelling ability. Close all your blackout curtains and listen in!

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 positivity 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 a 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!
