Amazon's import from ITV, White Dragon, is about a life and marriage that isn't what it seemed...and unfortunately, that's a meta comment on the show, because it seemed good, but was not. Allison Lowe Huff returns to discuss the show's first dumb, then too-Bond protagonist; the actors we didn't see enough of; and the Lost-ish Hydra of questions and puzzles. Then we moved on to a mini-Wheel of Murder and recommended overseas crime shows we DID like, including a French Agatha Christie, a Japanese Sherlock Holmes, a Spanish Ocean's 11, and the pretenders to Happy Valley's throne. And we STILL had yet to go Around The Dial to discuss One Day At A Time's third season, American Soul, the Studio 54 doc, and the Big MouthValentine's special! After Caroline hit us with an EHG-history game in her Extra Credit, we were...Charmed by a listener's Canon presentation. The Other Two won, NBC lost Bob Costas, and it's all about location in a very stately Game Time. Don't lose your passport: it's time to visit an all-new Extra Hot Great.

SUPPORT EHG ON PATREON
The EHG gang have been recording this podcast for almost a decade now. In podcasting terms, that makes us positivity 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 a 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
