About this Episode

Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes has crossed the ponds -- and crossed to a new network -- to launch his new period drama The Gilded Age; Mark Lisanti returns to discuss whether it will please members of the Felloweship of fans. Around The Dial takes us through American Auto, Abbott Elementary, Ozark, Season 2 of Cheer, Peacemaker, 9-1-1: Lone Star, and a brief mention of Toast Of Tinseltown. Erica S. asks us to invite several TV characters over for dinner and very specific kinds of discussion. Mlle. Caroline pitches "Redemption," the first-season finale of The Mandalorian, for induction into The Canon. Then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a Game Time that brings that Christmas in July feeling to January. Send your servants back downstairs 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
