About this Episode

Nadia Chaudhury is back to beef up our panel's discussion of The Bear, Hulu's tense, swear-packed story of a young chef's return to Chicago to run his family's sandwich shop -- and how his fine-dining past collides with a blue-collar present. Is Jeremy Allen White giving us William Fichtner vibes as Carmy? Can Sarah get enough of Richie's profanity? Is the show really about Carmy's journey, or Sydney's? And did watching make us hungry, or worn out? Then we went Around The Dial with Loot, Ms. Marvel, and The Janes before Helen tried to trap us in the web of her New Girl Canon presentation. Werner Herzog won, Nathan Fillion lost, and we whipped off our sunglasses and dad-joked into the opening credits with a CSI-based Game Time. An all-new Extra Hot Great is up, so get it to go!

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
