HBO's new Danny McBride/Jody Hill sitcom, The Righteous Gemstones, takes aim at megachurch evangelists, but will it make you throw up your hands in praise? Adam Sternbergh returns to discuss it. Around The Dial makes stops at Lodge 49, The Boys, Years And Years, and QB1: Beyond The Lights, before we roll into a Canon presentation on the series premiere of Sherlock, "A Study In Pink." After naming the week's Winner and Loser, we all say "¡si!" to a Game Time about TV's non-union Mexican equivalents. Our episode is an awesome episode, and you should listen!

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 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
