About this Episode

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 Horror Stories, Never Have I Ever, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Love, Victor, and Dr. Death. Don (on behalf of the @EHGAssist crew) uses his Extra Credit segment to let us give a TV character a late-night cable access show. Tara explains why she's not a crackpot for thinking the Marvel shows on Disney+ are just very expensive advertainment. Sean pitches Schitt's Creek's "Open Mic" for induction into the Canon. Then, after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a Game Time with perfect pitch. Ladle up a big bowl of corn puddin' 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 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
