Let your friends in podcasting put a little Ho Ho Ho into your holidays (and honestly, we have no idea what this even means) with their fourth “Top Ten” show of this, year ten of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour … This week, Dean and Phil count down their Top Ten (episodic) Television Shows of 2016, and this year their countdown comes replete with caveats! Who doesn’t love a good caveat during the holiday season?
If you haven’t listened to last week’s episode #455, make sure to do so BEFORE you check out this week’s barnd new show. Your friends in podcasting pick up where they left off as both Dean and Phil will reveal their Top Four favorite television series of 2015 (10 thru 5 were counted down last week). After that, Phil explains why he is so thrilled about the sequel to Blade Runner that is finally going before the cameras this summer, and in “Celebrity Deaths” one of the most important entertainment figures in Asia and a beloved American character actor are both remembered. Dean and Phil then tackle Hollywood’s award season, including analysis of the Producers Guild and Screen Actors Guild Awards, before launching into the LATEST controversy over the Oscars’ lack of diversity (#oscarsowhite). Boycotts generate headlines, membership changes … change the membership. Real change, however, might involve actually changing the awards themselves and your friends in podcasting have some serious ideas in this regard, changes that will reward those unsung in the business for too long, refocus the purpose of the awards AND might just lead to greater diversity. That’s all this week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
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.
