Should You Pledge Allegiance To The Regime?

We're talking about HBO's fascism satire, plus bad cameos and British sci-fi!

HBO’s latest prestige satire of an irredeemable group of corrupt people is well designed, and Winslet is great, but it’s maaaaybe not satirical enough of a Veep In The High Castle mash-up for the panel. We answered your Ask EHG questions about, among other things, show-killers, double dessert, and a Benson reboot; and our Not Quite Winners And Losers included recap podcasts, celebrity boxing, and unscripted goss. We finish up with formative ’70s British sci-fi joint The Tomorrow People, which Buntsy made everyone watch to see if it’s as bad as she remembered. Oh, Mike: throw a packet of DampRid in your backpack and listen now!
