About this Episode

The latest high school-based '80s sitcom to get a revival is HBO Max's 2021 take on Head Of The Class, so Daniel MacEachern -- a fan of the original in its day -- has joined us to talk about whether it's a pass or fail! Around The Dial takes us through Season 2 of Frayed, an update on Married At First Sight, Deutschland 89, Yellowstone, The Great British Bake Off (or Baking Show, depending on where you are), Project Runway, and the findings of the TV Holiday Corridor Committee. Tara explains why she is NOT a crackpot to think Rick was funnier before his lines got subtitled on Big Mouth. Danny presents the Ted Lasso episode "Trent Crimm: The Independent" for the Canon. Then we name the week's Winner and Loser and close out with a Game Time that has us contemplating celebrity mortality. Get out your notebook -- do kids still take those to class?! -- and listen!

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
