276: Disney+ Blasts Off With The Mandalorian

Disney+ finally launched earlier this week, so we thought we'd talk The Mandalorianwith Adam Grosswirth. How does the show fit into the Star Wars universe -- and should it bother? Is it hiding Pedro Pascal's light under a mask bushel? And was a certain very cute puppet perhaps pandering to longtime franchise fans? Later, we went Around The Dial with High School Musical: The Musical: The SeriesEncoreBack To Life, a POV on Bill Nye, and two Dark shows, and Adam hoped his and Eleanor's joint Grey's Anatomy presentation for the Canon wouldn't bomb. A League Of Their Own won, Don Cherry (finally) lost, and we trod the boards in a theatrical Game Time (yes, Sarah "actually got some points"). Don't take your masks off: it's 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 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
