249: Should You Get Behind The Red Line?

Wednesday, 1 May

It's a good thing today's Canon pitch is for The Other Two, because returning guest John Ramos is a super-fan -- but before we got around to that, we had to punch our tickets for The Red Line, CBS's weighty series on how three Chicago families intersect in the aftermath of a police shooting. Is it trying too hard for significance? Is the writing writing checks some of the acting can't cash? And do we wish Regina Taylor had a more central role? After debate club, we went Around The Dial with I Think You Should Leave With Tim Robinson, High Maintenance, and MTV's Jersey Shore/Bachelor hybrid Double Shot At Love, then High Castled some alternate-timeline/dystopian show pitches in an Extra Credit from C.G. before hearing that The Other Two Canon submission. Shannen Doherty won, Game Of Thrones took a bunch of losses, and we jammed with the return of One Letter Off Game Time. Throw a tiny needlepoint pillow on a concrete lounger and settle in for an all-new Extra Hot Great.

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
