About this Episode

The SCU (Sopranos Cinematic Universe) expands with the release, in theaters and on HBO Max, of the prequel film The Many Saints Of Newark, and Rolling Stone Senior TV Critic/certified Sopranologist Alan Sepinwall is here to discuss it with us! Around The Dial takes us through The Problem With Jon Stewart, Our Kind Of People, Maid, and the Working Girl TV series adaptation. Rebecca uses her Extra Credit topic to have us remove and recast disgraced stars from their TV vehicles to make them palatable again. Alan presents the Columbo episode "An Exercise In Fatality" for induction into the Canon. Then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, we're pulling off the turnpike for a New Jersey-themed Non-Regulation Game Time! Find your pew and join us!

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
