Somehow a bet on the Oscars turned into this episode all about television …
The recent Emmy nominations are discussed at the outset and very quickly the show turns into a grudge match pitting comedy against drama, Luther vs. Sherlock, Dean Haglund vs. Phil Leirness and Dean Haglund vs. David Lynch!
That’s right, you’re about to hear what happened when Dean had to fulfill his obligation (upon losing the annual Chillpak Hollywood Oscar pool) to watch the pilot episode of David Lynch’s seminal series Twin Peaks.
The owls are not what they seem …
From discussing a listener email about “negative thoughts” to answering questions from listeners regarding the documentary Paul Williams Still Alive and the Erick McCormack television series Perception, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are really putting the “your” into YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour this week!
Your friends in podcasting also discuss the supposed death of big screen comedy, plus what they’re reading, two “Live Events of the Week”, and they offer up a special helping of their pal Ethan Dettenmaier (the producer and host of the most excellent Combat Radio).
Finally, Dean and Phil remember the show business luminaries who left us during the past week as well as the twelve souls whose lives were taken in a movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado.
Your friends in podcasting have been busy! From marathons to moviemaking, from fine art to live events, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness really mix it up …
They launched a brand new documentary project about an artist and philosopher and they hope you will check it out HERE.

Of course, Dean and Phil really hope you will enjoy this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, which covers such diverse topics as the historic L.A. neighborhood of Los Feliz, the plays of Anton Checkhov, the films of the 1930′s, the critical debate over Prometheus, the under-appreciation of MIB3, some new shows on HBO, Dean’s shocking attitude towards prostitution, and why we really all should just get along.
