Chillpak Hollywood Hour #539

This week, your friends in podcasting bring you a truly epic 70 minute installment that opens with Phil holding court about spoiler alerts, time travel, dream logic and more as he discusses both “The Prisoner” on its 50th Anniversary and “Twin Peaks: The Return” in the wake of its brilliant finale. He even explains “what happened to Audrey!” Then Dean joins Phil to update us on the Sydney Hilarium, his pop-up comedy club, and to celebrate the lives of a former child star, the creator of McGruff the Crime Dog, one-half of Steely Dan, and the “gentle giant” of country music. After that, they follow up on their previous discussion about monuments and statues thanks to an email from a listener like you (well, maybe not EXACTLY like you, unless you created the normal theme song for the show). Then, a fascinating, possible “Lawsuit of the Week” surrounding a reboot of the 1980′s television series “Amazing Stories” comes our way courtesy of frequent contributor Stephen Fowler. Finally, Dean and Phil roll up their sleeves and dig into more than a dozen movies, including comedies from the 1930′s, sci-fi films from the 1960′s and five 2017 releases.

Great TV, many genres of films, musical surprises, and several big laughs. In other words, YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #429

Your friends in podcasting follow up on their first official intercontinental L.A. to Australia episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour with a full hour (plus) of conversation. Topics range from the death of Rowdy Roddy Piper to the end of Jon Stewart’s run on “The Daily Show”, from the apology made by the killer of Cecil the Lion to the return of Art Bell, from recent and classic movies directed by women to what foreign governments think of the U.S., from how Dean Haglund celebrated his birthday to what new cinematic releases Phil Leirness highly recommends. All that, plus Phil peppers Dean with questions about his trip to Vancouver this week to participate in the reboot of “The X-Files”. What did Dean think of the script? Which episode of the six being filmed is Dean shooting this week? What are the odds The Lone Gunmen will be back for more in this (brief) season? Is the show being written to “resolve” the story, or is it setting up the potential for continuation (depending on ratings)? Where will Dean be filming? Will he be wearing a wig? Dean’s answers to these questions are never less than interesting.

Enjoy.
