237: Is Russian Doll To Die For?
Just in time for Groundhog Day, Netflix has released Russian Doll, in which Natasha Lyonne's Nadia keeps dying and being resurrected into the bathroom at her birthday party. Joining us to discuss is first-time guest/New York Times TV critic James Poniewozik! Around The Dial checks in with Speechless, Corporate, The Challenge(speaking of immortal), and Bud Light's bizarre Game Of Thrones crossover. Lauren tries to make it a Canon submission hat trick with "The Equestranots" episode of Bob's Burgers. Then after a (slightly ambiguous) Winner and Loser pair, Super Nintendo Chalmers returns to Game Time! Pull the trigger on that bathroom door handle and join us!SHOW TOPICSRussian DollSpeechlessCorporateThe ChallengeBud Light's Super Bowl adThe Canon: Bob's Burgers S04.E17: The EquestranotsWinner and Loser of the WeekGame TimeSuper Nintendo Chalmers 2: Steamed HamsSHOW NOTESJames Poniewozik on TwitterJim's Times review of Russian DollThe latest episode of the Appointment Television podcastThe Times list of The 20 Best TV Dramas Since The SopranosAll Jim's work at the TimesSarah on SVU's "Avatar" on the These Are Their Stories podcastSUPPORT EHG ON PATREONThe 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

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for June 16, 2019 is: assiduous \uh-SIJ-uh-wus\ adjective : showing great care, attention, and effort : marked by careful unremitting attention or persistent application Examples: "Ryan Murphy …, in his last FX series before founding his Netflix empire, was also assiduous about hiring transgender actors and creative staff…." — James Poniewozik, The New York Times, 1 June 2018 "In conjunction with his efforts as a painter, Goya was an assiduous draftsman and printmaker. His first efforts at etching include … royal portraiture and grand subject paintings such as the Feast of Bacchus." — Michael A. Gibson, Jr. and Jessica Brandrup, NBCDFW.com (Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas), 24 Oct. 2018 Did you know? Judges presiding over assizes (former periodical sessions of the superior courts in English counties) had to be assiduous in assessing how to best address their cases. Not only were their efforts invaluable, but they also serve as a fine demonstration of the etymologies of assiduous, assess, and assize. All three of those words derive from the Latin verb assidēre, which is variously translated as "to sit beside," "to take care of," or "to assist in the office of a judge." Assidēre, in turn, is a composite of the prefix ad- (in this case, meaning "near" or "adjacent to") and sedēre, meaning "to sit."
