I never miss this show. I don’t have a lot of time to watch TV but this helps me know what’s out there, what I should be watching, or what I could probably miss. The hosts are hilarious, sharp, insightful, and call out BS when they see it. Game Time that closes out every episode always eases my long commute. I’d give 6 stars if I could.

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 officially summer, and you know what that means: time to start a fire in the hearth, brew a pot of tea, and snuggle under a fur blanket for Showtime's Victorian supernatural drama, Penny Dreadful! Naturally, we were thrilled to welcome Matt Debenham, our resident Penny Dreadful correspondent, to join in the discussion. From there, we check in on the evolution of Mad Men's Don Draper into D.B. Cooper on the eve of the series finale. Around The Dial takes us through stops at Finding Carter, The Following, Nurse Jackie, The Good Wife, and a very brief peek back at 30 Rock.

Honored guest Trip "Willa Fortune" Payne joined Regina Dentata, Juana B. Arthur, and Salacious Bum to tell the T about Drag Race: what we like (Snatch Game), whom we hate (Santino), which queens we think will win (it's a surprise) (…not really). We celebrated The Good Wife's big twist and bemoaned Scandal's "Quuck" pairing; Sarah drew parallels between Olivia Benson and Carol Hathaway; and Dave invited everyone to join the forums' Firefly rewatch. A seminal '90s sitcom ep was considered for the Canon before we declared the week's winner and loser, and played a fan-tastic Game Time. We're serving radio realness (and possibly giving away a toaster oven) on this week's Extra Hot Great.

Rank #6: 213: Does Making It Work?

Podcast cover
Read more

What's not to love about a crafting competition show hosted by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman? Wellll, Linda Holmes and the regulars could think of a few things, but our nitpicks stem almost entirely from liking the show and wanting it to be its best, punniest self. We talk host bits, judging inconsistencies, the comparison of apples to macrame, and there's even Sarah's obligatory semi-annual reference to Work Of Art. We go Around The Dial with Queer Eye, Kids Baking Championship, The Bletchley Circle: Mission Burrito (...okay, it's actually "San Francisco," but we like Dave's name better), and Trial & Error before Linda serves a warrant for inducting Brooklyn Nine-Nine into The Canon. Deadwood won (maybe; we'll see), networks' lip service to survivors and equal pay lost, and we entered the valley of the shadow of unbelievable/y crappy shows with Dan Cassino's Trough TV Game Time. Glue-gun those earbuds in: it's an all-new Extra Hot Great.

Here's hoping you rested your ears over Thanksgiving, because they're getting battered by Season 2 of Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Sherman-Palladino superfan Nick Rheinwald-Jones is returning to discuss whether it killed or bombed. Around The Dial clicks through the Comedy Central sketch special Goatface, Magic For Humans, The Comedy Lineup, and a whole slate of food shows, including Top Chef, The Final Table, and The Great British Bake Off. For her Extra Credit question, Caroline asks us each to identify a show recommended by a trusted source that just didn't take. Nick pitches Community's "App Development And Condiments" for induction into the Canon. Then we name the week's Winner and Loser and close up with a Game Time that's a bit pricey.

As Tara takes a vacay, John Ramos joins the rest of the crew to discuss Mad Men's return for the first half of its final season. Has it lost its sense of humor? And how would we like to see it end? We also discussed a few shows we're late to the party on -- Parks & Recreation, The Clone Wars -- and one whose party we should have left weeks ago. After considering That Mitchell & Webb Look for the Canon, we gave rare and qualified kudos to Carlton Cuse, and during Game Time, reading was fundamental. So grab some Ritz Crackers (but not a Hershey bar), steal your secretary's roses, and settle in for a real Weiner of an episode of Extra Hot Great.
