About this Episode

Fill a dish with hard candies for Dave Chen, who's back after a long absence to talk about the somewhat mysterious appeal of FX's aging-spy-vs.-spy drama, The Old Man. Does Sarah think it needs more process-y bits? Does the excellent acting by Jeff Bridges, John Lithgow, and their younger versions make up for long nobody-talks-like-that passages of abstraction? And are Dave and Carol the real heroes? Later, we went Around The Dial with Rutherford Falls, RHONJ, and Players before Tara tried to convert us to her team with a sixth-season Seinfeld. DB Cooper won, Canada lost, and then we all wedged ourselves into a snowglobe for a Game Time from Dan Cassino. When you're done paying for your groceries with a check, hold your ear trumpet up to an all-new Extra Hot Great.

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
