It's a mini Television Without Pity reunion as the gang and former recappers Dan Rogge (DJB), John Ramos (Couch Baron), Kim Reed (Kim), and Joe Reid (Joe R) play Mullendash -- a game invented and played at the TWoP annual summits of yore. Take the game Balderdash and replace the cards with items from Jim Mullen's Hot Sheet from the pages of Entertainment Weekly. The set up to a Hot Sheet "joke" is read and players must create their own punchline in that particularly confounding Mullen style in an attempt to fool the others that they are The Mullen. It's a game full of WTF, shame and pretzeltine mental gymnastics!

461: Sticking Around For I Think You Should Leave
1:15:48I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson is back on Netflix for Season 3, and actor/comedian/media mogul Will Hines is also back to talk about the season's best sketches, unique sketch-show rhythms, and whether Robinson is still TV's best screamer. We went Around The Dial with Platonic, The Night Agent, and Primo, and then relaxed by the pool with Chris's Lodge 49 Canon submission. Kenan Thompson won, Andy Cohen lost, and we rolled the dice in TV real estate during Game Time. Hop off the zipline and listen to an all-new Extra Hot Great!

460: Can Clone High Duplicate Past Success?
1:29:41Way way back in the early aughties, we all adored Clone High, an animated satire of Dawson's Creek and its ilk that featured wall-to-wall gags and catchphrases your regular panelists -- and esteemed guest John -- still use to this day. Naturally, we welcomed news of a decades-later second season...but does the show still have the same deranged energy, or is it too careful? We talked about how long it dwells on cancel culture (...sigh), who's the best new clone (and who's our most beloved returning character), and whether this version is getting renewed (spoiler: doubt it). Then we went Around The Dial with Primo, a last-minute Tiny Triumph, Mrs. Davis, and Happy Valley before Tara tried to pile-drive another episode of Glow into the Canon. Jason Momoa won, SVU's casting department lost, and DJ Farnsworth mixed everyone up with a theme-song mash-up Game Time. Try not to burn yourself on an all-new Extra Hot Great!

459: Heating Things Up With Our Summer TV Preview
1:21:39The lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are nearly upon us, and there's only one thing on all our minds: what shows are we going to be watching? The New Republic's TV critic Phillip Maciak joins us for the first time as we all share our picks for the shows we're into; the shows we SHOULD be into, but aren't; and the shows we feel NO ONE should be into. Philip makes the case for the pilot of The Americans to be inducted into the Canon. Then, after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a Game Time that may require parental guidance.

455: Is The Final Season of Barry Killing It?
1:13:37Esther Zuckerman returns to talk about the early going of the final season of Barry, including how we felt about Sally's parents, self-indulgent directing, entertainment-reporter scavenger hunts, and our panel's predictions for how the show ends. Later, we went Around The Dial with Single Drunk Female, Perry Mason, and Somebody Somewhere before putting our (bare) feet up to listen to Esther's The Other Two Canon submission.

1:34:32Monty returns to talk about Apple+'s rights-clearance/Cold-War espionage tale, Tetris, and how it stacks up against the actual game. Spoiler: most of the panel would have preferred playing to watching, but we did like some of the performances, and Sarah didn't mind a certain true-crime trifecta. Next, we went Around The Dial with Unstable, The Exhibit, Yellowjackets tasting notes from our esteemed colleague Eve Batey, and a Perry Mason credits game before Monty asked "will they or won't they" about a late-season episode of Moonlighting. Gehrig won, Fleiss lost, and we interrogated the origins of various TV objects in another Game Time round of 19 Questions. Grab a lawyer and your passport, it's an all-new Extra Hot Great!
