Extensions of the main YouTube channel include Collider Podcasts, Collider Interviews, Collider Games, Collider Sports & Pro Wrestling Sheet.

The website and channel has expanded into producing podcasts for PodcastOne. Daily, the crew will share their perspective on the film industry, which will include film reviews and industry news; each episode is an hour in length. A segment called "Buy or Sell" happens daily where the panel will discuss whether they see certain topics or announcements as favorable or unfavorable; each episode will end with questions from the "mailbag" sent to collidervideo@gmail.com and from live tweets to the channel #Collidervideo. The "Agree or Disagree" segment was pulled from the show. Airing at 9:00 AM, the show moved to a 4:00 PM timeslot in July 2018, followed by a 3:00 PM timeslot in May 2019. Along with the May 2019 timeslot change, the format was changed to now include live chat interaction during the show, nixing the live Twitter questions at the end of the program. In August 2019, it was announced that the program would be moving back to the earlier 9:00 AM timeslot along with additional segments and content.

The show was cancelled in a statement released by Collider and Marc Fernandez on January 2, 2020. Heroes follows a similar format to Movie Talk, except the coverage is on comic book film news, it was hosted by Jon Schnepp, who after his passing was succeeded by Coy Jandreau. Episodes revolve around the DC Extended Universe; the show talks about comics-based TV series such as Arrow and The Flash on The CW or the MCU on Netflix. The show was cancelled in a statement released by Collider and Marc Fernandez on January 2, 2020. Nightmares follows the same format as Movie Heroes to a horror-focused show. Hosted by Clarke Wolfe, it follows news on television. Regular co-hosts include Perri Nemiroff and Jon Schnepp, it was reduced from a weekly show to monthly installments in 2017 due to decreased viewership, was put on indefinite hiatus. Introduced in March 2016 as a soft reboot of the 2014/2015 version hosted on the Schmoes Know YouTube channel the Movie Trivia Schmoedown is a game show hosted by Harloff and Ellis where famous Collider or other YouTube cinema-related personalities engage in a film trivia competition.

The show has a heavy professional wrestling influence in terms of storylines and gimmicks, although the competition itself is legitimate. There are four divisions: the singles, InnerGeekdom – a division with emphasis on DC, DC Extended Universe, Harry Potter, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Trek, Star Wars, Middle-earth questions. Despite the overhaul of the show's format in the move from Schmoes Know to Collider, all of the matches from the previous incarnation are still counted for players' records. Starting in 2019, the Movie Trivia Schmoedown was moved back to the Schmoes Know YouTube channel; as of 2017, the traditional format sees the opponents engage in a three-round match: in the first round, they have to write down on a white board the answers to eight questions of different categories, getting a point for every correct answer. They will answer up to four questions in that category, receiving two points for a correct answer, the added option of multiple choice which cuts down a correct answer to only one point, as well as the looming risk of a competitor stealing point.

In the championship match format, instead of third, this is the fifth round of the contest. Championship matches feature two extra rounds: the waging round, or the third round in championship match format, where the competitors can wage from zero up to three of their earned points at that time, answer a question from another wheel-spun category, getting an additional number of points if they get it correct, losing those same points if they fail.

Höchsterwünschtes Freudenfest, BWV 194

Höchsterwünschtes Freudenfest, BWV 194, is a church cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. He composed it in Leipzig for dedication of the church and organ at Störmthal on 2 November 1723; the cantata text was written by an anonymous poet, including two stanzas of Johann Heermann's hymn "Treuer Gott, ich muß dir klagen" and two stanzas of Paul Gerhardt's "Wach auf, mein Herz, und singe". Bach used an earlier secular cantata as a base for a structure in two parts of six movements each, beginning with an extended choral movement and concluding both parts with chorale stanzas; the inner movements are alternating arias. The chorales are the only movements which were newly composed for the occasion. Bach scored the work for three vocal soloists, a four-part choir and a Baroque instrumental ensemble of three oboes, bassoon and continuo. After the first performance in Störmthal, Bach performed the cantata again in Leipzig for Trinity Sunday, first on 4 June 1724, a shortened version in 1726, the complete version in 1731.

The first known performance of the cantata was at a village near Leipzig. The church there had been rebuilt, a new organ been built on a commission by Statz Friedrich von Fullen; the organ was an early work by Zacharias Hildebrandt. Von Fullen requested an approval of the instrument from Johann Sebastian Bach, Thomaskantor in Leipzig. Bach was satisfied and composed this cantata for the dedication service for the church and the organ on 2 November 1723; the text deals with the inauguration of the church. The organ has no solo function in the cantata; the cantata text was written by an anonymous poet, who took Solomon's prayer for the dedication of the temple as a starting point to reflect the church as the house of God. Frequent Biblical references throughout the text suggest, he included as movement 6, ending Part I, stanzas 6 and 7 of Johann Heermann's hymn "Treuer Gott, ich muß dir klagen", as the closing chorale, stanzas 9 and 10 of Paul Gerhardt's "Wach auf, mein Herz, und singe". Scholars such as John Eliot Gardiner assume that Bach based the cantata on a lost work composed at Köthen for an unknown occasion.

The music of movements 2, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 10 is lost, only instrumental parts of the other movements are extant. Bach added the chorales for the 1723 dedication service. Höchsterwünschtes Freudenfest shows musical similarities to Preise, den Herrn, BWV 119, written for the inauguration of the Leipzig town council a few weeks earlier. Bach led the first performance at the dedication service in Störmthal; the printed text mentions Bach as "Hochfürstl. Anhalt-Cöthenischen Capell-Meister, auch Directore Chori musici Lipsiensis", referring to his appointments in the service of Leopold, Prince of Anhalt-Köthen; the organ of Störmthal is notable as one of few such instruments still unaltered since Bach's time. A restorer in 1934 remarked that it was tuned about a whole tone lower than 440, which may account for the unusually high vocal ranges. Bach demanded "top Cs" from the sopranos, unique in his sacred cantatas; the organ part prepared for the Leipzig revival is notated a minor third lower than the other instruments.

Bach revived the cantata for performances in Leipzig for Trinity Sunday. The prescribed readings for Trinity were Romans 11:33–36, John 3:1–15, the meeting of Jesus and Nicodemus; the general topic and an "invocation of the Trinity" in movement 6 made for an easy transition. On 4 June 1724, Bach concluded his first cantata cycle with this work. On 16 June 1726, he presented a shortened version, with movements appearing in the order 12, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 10; the 12-movement version was again performed on 20 May 1731. Bach structured the cantata in two parts of six movements each, it is scored for three vocal soloists, a four-part choir, a Baroque instrumental ensemble of three oboes, two violins and basso continuo. In the following table of the movements, the scoring follows the Neue Bach-Ausgabe; the keys and time signatures are taken from the Bach scholar Alfred Dürr, using the symbol for common time. The instruments are shown separately for winds and strings, while the continuo, playing throughout, is not shown.

The music has an dance-like character. All recitatives, the majority of the solo movements, are secco, accompanied only by the continuo. Most of them are followed by an aria performed by the same voice type. Part I begins with a chorus in the style of a French overture with a solemn opening and a fast fugal central section; the bass sings an aria, accompanied by solo oboe and strings. The soprano sings an aria in the style of a gavotte. A four-part harmonization of the chorale ends the first part. Part II begins with the tenor singing a recitative and a da capo aria in a minor mode, characterized by its extensive use of dotted rhythms. A dialogue recitative for bass and soprano leads to a duet aria with oboes and continuo. After a declamatory bass recitative, the work ends with another four-part chorale setting; the entries are taken from the listing on the Bach Cantatas Website. Ensembles with period instruments in informed performance are marked by green background.

Gino's Hamburgers

Gino's Hamburgers was a fast-food restaurant chain founded in Baltimore, Maryland, by Baltimore Colts defensive end Gino Marchetti and running back Alan Ameche, along with their close friends Joe Campanella and Louis Fischer, in 1957. A new group of restaurants under the Gino's name, involving some of the principals of the original chain, was started in 2010; the first Gino's was opened in Dundalk, just outside Baltimore. In 1967 Gino's merged with Tops Drive Inn, a chain of 18 drive-in restaurants located in the Washington, D. C. area. In the early 1970s, the company attempted to expand from its East Coast base into the Midwest, however these locations only operated a short period. For one location, it purchased Orchestra Hall in Detroit and planned to demolish the structure to construct a restaurant; when the plan became public, it led to a grass-roots campaign to save and restore the abandoned structure. The chain had 359 company-owned locations when Marriott Corporation acquired it in 1982.

Marriott converted locations to its Roy Rogers Restaurants chain. The last Gino's, located in Pasadena and owned independently from Marriott, closed in 1986. Gino's purchased and operated the Rustler Steak House chain started by Joe Campanella, sold by Marriott shortly after its purchase of Gino's; the restaurant was known for hamburgers such as the Sirloiner, made from sirloin steak, the Gino Giant, which predated and competed with the Big Mac. The company held the franchise for Kentucky Fried Chicken in the Mid-Atlantic states; the company's jingle, played during radio advertisements in the early years was "Everybody goes to Gino's,'cause Gino's is the place to go!"The company became known for its philanthropic efforts. Marchetti and Fischer have opened several new Gino's restaurants. Marchetti and Fischer will be serving as consultants; the new restaurants plan to serve burgers, chicken sandwiches, hand-cut french fries and hand-spun milkshakes. The chain plans to open locations in Pennsylvania and Maryland.

In charge is Tom Romano, who worked for 20 years with the company, was C. O. O. in 1982 when the chain was sold. "It's apparent there's a need for better burgers out there", said Romano, citing the success of such chains as Five Guys, Gino's Burgers and Chicken has placed itself upscale of the earlier Gino's. Gino's plans to make its burgers to order from fresh beef, their first location opened in King of Prussia, the same town as the original chain's headquarters, on October 25, 2010. Plans were announced in Spring 2011 for franchise expansion into Baltimore. On August 17, 2011, a second Gino's location opened in Maryland. Another Gino's opened in Bensalem, Pennsylvania on October 11, 2011. A Gino's Burgers and Chicken opened in Oriole Park at Camden Yards at the start of the Orioles season in 2012, but closed by the end of the 2014 season. On January 22, 2013, Gino's Burgers and Chicken opened in Aberdeen, however the Bensalem location closed around the same time. On July 9, 2013, the King of Prussia location closed leaving the Philadelphia market.

The location at Perry Hall, which opened on March 5, 2012, closed on December 8, 2013. The Aberdeen location closed on March 2016, leaving only the Towson and Glen Burnie locations.
