About this Episode

Sometimes American remakes of British comedies are big hits, like The Office! And sometimes they're not, like Taskmaster. Where does The CW's take on Would I Lie To You? land? Panel show aficionado Dan Cassino returns to discuss it. Around The Dial takes us through Minx, The Ultimatum, Beforeigners, Julia, and Atlanta. Dave S. uses his Extra Credit to challenge us to reinvent the dating show à la The Courtship (except...good). Listener Françoise pitches the Top Chef All-Stars episode "Restaurant Wars: One Night Only" to The Canon. Then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, tag! It's on to a Game Time full of taglines. You won't want to miss this one, and that's the truth!

  • 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
