About this Episode

Will Hines joins the panel for the latest imagining of The Twilight Zone from Jordan Peele -- an idea whose time may have come and (thanks to Black Mirror) gone. Will the show find its footing once the proof-of-concept episodes are done? And is this enough to get folks to pay for CBS All Access?

Later, we went Around The Dial with HBO's peek comedies Veep and Barry, Aeon Flux-y guilty pleasure Love, Death & Robots, ER, and Deadwind before Dave The Poker Pro challenged us to find the next deep-dive Again With This podcast topic. We considered a precious (geddit?) Steven Universe episode for The Canon before declaring SVU a long-running winner and Tori Spelling an Insta loser...and then Phil Collins sang us into a very friendly Game Time. There's something on the wing! (It's an all-new 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 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! Extra Hot Great on Patreon
