Thank you to everyone who has reached out about how much you enjoyed last week’s episode 494. In this week’s follow-up. Phil wants to know if “Barb” from “Stranger Things” is the most popular character on television. He also wants anyone in the Los Angeles area to come see him host An LABC Home Companion on November 13! He and Dean discuss what has been a rough 50th Anniversary year for the “Star Trek” franchise, David Letterman’s return to television, what’s new for the forthcoming season 3 of “Fargo”, the final two-part episode of “Documentary Now”, and a failed 2007 television pilot from Christopher Guest. It won’t all be TV, however, as Dean and Phil will discuss a top candidate for worst film of 2016, a great food documentary that serves as a love letter to Los Angeles AND the importance of critics, as well as a classic screen comedy from 1949. All that, plus some final thoughts before the USA 2016 election takes place. YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Enjoy!
One of our longest shows ever begins with the latest American gun massacre and ends with an Easter egg where “the owls are not what they seem”. In between, your friends in podcasting tackle the latest developments in the “Midnight Rider” lawsuit, the exploitation of extras on the set of HBO’s “Westworld” series, the art of being a “background performer”, and reviews of two new cinematic releases, one recently Oscar-nominated documentary, a female-directed science fiction film (“everyone should see”) and a sci-fi treasure of the 1970′s. All that plus Dean explains whether or not there is a secret, “7th episode” of the forthcoming revivial of “The X-Files” and Phil weighs in on two new television series.
We promise we will try to keep things a bit shorter in the future because too much of anything, even YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, is not necessarily a good thing!
For now, pack a lunch, buckle up and enjoy!

Marc Hershon, the host of Succotash, is a member of the Illuminati?!
That’s just one of the many interesting tidbits you’ll learn, along with the source for the term “limelight”, a conspiracy to blow up the Los Angeles Times in the early 20th Century, and the real, behind-the-scenes origin of the name “Rosebud” in Citizen Kane.
There’s also movie talk aplenty (The Lego Movie, Anchorman 2, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Noah) AND the second half of Dean’s conversation with the great Rick Overton!
Cataclysmic storms, divisive Presidential elections, erstwhile Italian Prime Ministers sentenced to prison, Disney making more Star Wars films, unnecessarily Americanized/Anglicized versions of compelling stories, the end of the Mayan Calendar, Dean Haglund action figures and a “Sherlock Holmes” television series that is more House than Holmes …
On this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, your friends in podcasting attempt to make sense of a world gone wild.
What do the Mayan Calendar, David Lynch, Lyle Skosey, Sarah Nean Bruce, fire alarms, veterinarians, Jacques Cousteau, National Treasure: Book of Secrets and Phil’s birthdays have in common? Why, episode #260 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, of course!
