About this Episode

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, Starstruck, Bargain Block, Crime Scene Kitchen, The Housewife and the Hustler, and a weird movie on HBO Max, and then it got REALLY weird when we all sent in the clowns for David Ellis Dickerson's Extra Credit. Richard signed our yearbooks "I hope this overlooked-classic Simpsons episode stays sweet" in his Canon presentation; Farrow won and Toobin (and pooin') lost; and a role-playing Game Time had us all wondering if we'd (IMD)be crowning a season winner. Grab your timey-wimey remote: 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 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
