Chillpak Hollywood Hour #493

After last week’s special “Top Ten” show, your friends in podcasting have a lot to discusss! From Dean’s appearances in Melbourne to Phil’s attendance at a historic, Halloween-themed Victorian event, from revisiting their show counting down the all-time great horror films to following up on last week’s outstanding show that focused on westerns, from previewing future “top ten” shows to trying to make sense of the USA election season, Dean and Phil will roll up their sleeves and get it all done! Plus, they will discuss at least three television series AND more than a dozen films currently in development. It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #455

One recent trip and the discovery of a 30 year-old document, led Phil Leirness to ruminate on the nature of nostalgia. He shares these thoughts with you … And speaking of nostalgia, a certain television franchise from the 1990′s has returned to the small screen. After having been very careful not to spoil anything in advance of its airing, Dean Haglund and Phil will weigh in on what we’ve seen thus far and will discuss (spoiler-free) on where the series is heading … And then, the main event! Following up on last week’s epic rundown on the best (and worst) of cinema in 2015, Dean and Phil start to reveal their top ten television shows of 2015.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #447

Phil starts things off by remembering the victims of last week’s San Bernardino massacre. Then, Dean arrives to remember the great character actor Robert Loggia and Stone Temple Pilots front-man Scott Weiland. Phil asks Dean about the latest developments with his one-man “X-Files” improv stage show. Dean and Phil follow up on their incredible interview of two weeks back with the creator of an anti-bullying app thanks to an email from a listener like you (yes, YOU!). Dean and Phil also follow up on their conversation of weeks past about what would happen in the future when women are allowed to fight side by side as equal warriors with their male counterparts because that future, apparently, has just arrived! Of course, there is also plenty of show biz analysis, insight and irreverence, from Phil’s brush with Joss Whedon to Dean’s viewing of a female-directed film everyone should see, from the puzzling question of why “Supernatural” is still on the air to Phil offering suggestions as to why Marvel’s “Jessica Jones” on Netflix does not have the same heat surrounding it as did “Daredevil” earlier this year. Finally, Phil brings things full circle from his soapbox, calling out those who prevent the gun control debate from becoming an actual debate. With ten percent more “hour”, this is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #439

The victims of the Umpqua shooting are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Dean and Phil weigh in on another entry from the Film Fatales list of female-directed films everyone should see. This week’s selection comes from the super-talented Lynn Shelton. After that, Phil weighs in on two brand new, Oscar-hopefuls, taking one behind the shed for its unbearably bad casting. Another name is added to the list of great contemporary character performers to cherish and celebrate.

Then, guest correspondent Page Branson of Level 7 Access: A Marvel Agents of Shield Podcast joins Dean and Phil to review the pilot of The X-Files revival (which screened this weekend at New York Comic Con). She also hips us to all that’s upcoming on the small screen from Marvel – including Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, Jessica Jones – and how the recent creative shakeup at the studio might affect their small screen fare.

YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood #418

Goodbyes are foremost on the minds of your friends in podcasting … Phil offers up his thoughts about the “Mad Men” finale and from Dean Haglund’s goodbye to The Big and Tall Show and to the U.S.A. to music lovers’ goodbye to the legendary B.B. King, from David Letterman’s goodbye to late night television to Harry Shearer’s goodbye to “The Simpsons”, this week’s episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour embraces the ephemeral nature of life and art. The glories of Sci-Fest are extolled. A Sherlock Holmes movie with Ian McKellen is previewed. The return of “The X-Files”, “Twin Peaks” and Rosario Dawson to “Daredevil” are discussed. Will Phil be binge watching either “Aquarius” or “Hannibal”? Is Dean interested in Conan O’Brien’s new, funny “X-Files”? Stop reading and start listening and you’ll find out. Wherever good podcasts are found.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #415

We’re only two episodes away from the end of year 8 and only five episodes away from Dean Haglund’s move to Australia, yet your friends in podcasting have more to discuss than ever before! From a full report on the preview screening of their new dark comedy, to the latest news regarding Sci-Fest, from the latest rumblings about the return of The X-Files to Phil’s heartfelt thank you and farewell to a film critic who played a major role in his development as an artist, this week’s installment is quite personal to Dean and Phil.

There is a ton of talk about current television (like Mad Men, Daredevil, and the countdown to David Letterman’s final show) and future television (an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off, the Twin Peaks reboot, and perhaps the most exciting new show to be announced in AGES!). There is also much attention to paid to forthcoming movies, including ill-advised remakes and reboots, and maybe a film or two worthy of optimism!

Dean and Phil follow up on their (enormously popular) discussion of female-driven films (episode #413), with a discussion of two emerging female musical artists. All that, plus the latest dirt Phil has learned about Scientology AND not one, not two, not three, but FOUR emails from listeners like you! Want to learn about IMDb? Want to learn about Dean and Phil’s favorite cookies? Then, stop reading and start enjoying this thrilling installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
