About this Episode

Hulu apparently felt that the Michelle Carter "texting suicide" case hadn't been sufficiently covered by a Lifetime movie and a multi-hour documentary, so now its latest scripted true crime series, The Girl From Plainville, is taking its turn; Stephanie Early Green returns to discuss it. Around The Dial takes us through Music Box: Listening To Kenny G; Is It Cake?; Love On The Spectrum; and Mare Of Easttown. Amelia S. challenges us to forcen TV characters with TV episodes -- to delight ones we like and torture ones we don't. Stephanie presents the Detroiters episode "Hog Riders" for induction into the Canon. Then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a real character of a Game Time. Take a break from yelling to everyone you know about Hulu's taste level and listen to us do that instead!

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
