We're so glad our esteemed colleague and Breaking Bad 101 author Alan Sepinwall could join us to talk about El Camino, the Breaking Bad sequel on Netflix that starts just minutes after the finale ended. Did we think it was necessary and/or satisfying? Were the fan-service elements welcome, or distracting? And which other characters should get their own post-BB films? Later, we went Around The Dial with Dynasty, Riverdale's Luke Perry tribute episode, Lodge 49, Private Lives Of The Windsors, and an objection from Dave to breathy cover-song TV themes (and the ending of Press, kind of), before Alan warmed up a second-season Leftovers episode as his Canon submission. Holey Moley won, a FOX affiliate (and racist sports teams) lost, and we sprang into action (verbs) for Game Time with the season hanging in the balance. An all-new Extra Hot Great: that's church, yo.

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
