About this Episode

Two Cents Plus Tax co-host Krystal Farmer came by to talk about The Endgame, an overstuffed and underwhelming procedural that tries to do too much and is assembled from the spare parts of too many early-aughts shows. Why do networks still make shows like this? Do we need The Endgame if we still (seriously!) have The Blacklist? And how is Fedorova writing on the sticky side of Post-Its? We fared better going Around The Dial with Severance, a Married At First Sight update, Creamerie, Inventing Anna, Inside The Mind Of A Con Artist, 9-1-1: Lone Star, and Reacher, and gave TV characters (and hosts) some drugs for Extra Credit. Listener Michael hoped we'd visit Cougar Town with a Canon election before Dickens won, Erika Jayne lost (...again), and we answered the door to a hell of a season-clinching Game Time. No need to blackmail the Homeland Secretary -- an all-new Extra Hot Great is all yours.

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
