“The Prisoner” (1967) has been called the most intelligent, thought-provoking entertainment series of all time and quite frankly, we think that is understating the show’s merits! This year marks the 50th Anniversary of that groundbreaking show’s debut and to commemorate the event, your friends in podcasting will welcome the organizer of the upcoming The Prisoner Con 2017 to discuss this incredible series, its production, its themes, its legacy. Even if you have never watched the series, have no fear, you will find this week’s show fascinating. We promise. And Phil sets the stage by putting the show, and its creator-star in historic context in a very special opening segment.
Be seeing you!
Today’s show is one of those special episodes where your friends in podcasting get on a roll and throw out the structure in favor of an organic, enlivening exchange that still manages to touch on such topics as The PEACE Fund (Protecting, Educating and Aiding Children Everywhere), the “Looper effect”, General David Petraeus and sex scandals, the most unfortunate entertainment headline in recent memory, news from HBO’S “The Newsroom”, the Daniel Craig “Bond” films, and the Sean Connery “Bond” films.
There is an “Explanation of the Week” involving Mitt Romney and there is a lengthy debate over 007′s latest big-screen adventure.
The theme of this week’s show? If you don’t stand for something, you’re likely to Skyfall for anything!
This week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
Happy Holidays from your friends in podcasting!
Because it’s the holidays, we don’t want to spoil the surprises contained in this week’s show. We’ll let you unwrap at a time and place of your own choosing.
Suffice it to say, if you like movies, music, politics, theatre, comedy, irreverence, inspiration and good conversation, and especially if you like Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, you’ll enjoy this brand new episode.
It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
If you would like to get to SEE your friends in podcasting (rather than just hear them), make sure you check out their joint appearance on the ActorsE Chat Show (hosted by Yi Tian).
Also, if you’re going to be in the Seattle, Washington area on Tuesday 22 November, why not stop by the Northwest Film Forum to see THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE and to meet Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness? Only a handful of seats remain at this intimate venue, so get your tickets today!
Of course, we encourage you to listen to this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour and visualize Dean and Phil and their visiting co-presenter, Jodie Orton (co-host of Siren 107.3 FM’s “American Dream Team” in the UK) as they sit around poolside atop the Eastern Columbia building, discussing the business of show …
Topics include: The disappearance of young men and teenaged boys from the multiplexes, the continuing plummet of Netflix stock, the drop in average ticket prices, the failure of “The Tower Heist”, the whereabouts of Richard Grieco and the wisdom of Avery Brooks (aka Captain Benjamin Sisko) as told to William Shatner in the Shatneriffic documentary “The Captains”.
All that plus TWO celebrity deaths, ONE Hollywood Lawsuit and FIVE intriguing projects that are in various stages of production, development or discussion.
It’s Labor Day here in the U.S. A national holiday, plus a bicycle trip through France for Dean and editorial deadlines for Phil, can only mean that it’s time for a pre-recorded “theme” show. Longtime listeners will remember Chillpak Hollywood Hour #13. The majority of listeners who have come to the show more recently and who have tried to catch up on all the past shows will know that Episode #13 was truly unlucky in that only the first six minutes or so of it still exist! So, after finishing a discussion about movie remakes, started last week and inspired by an email from a listener like you (yes, YOU!), your friends in podcasting finally make amends for that “missing” episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, by spending most of this week’s show discussing the world of James Bond! Dean and Phil compare notes on their favorite 007 adventures, as well as comparing their tastes to those of the viewing public. Here’s hoping this special show all about Bond-age will leave you both shaken AND stirred!
It’s the summer of 2007. The summer of ‘07. No, it’s the summer of 007! Dean and Phil go deep into the world of Bond. Enjoy! WARNING: NOT A COMPLETE EPISODE! In fact, it’s only 5 and a half minutes … Finding out what happened to the rest of it is certainly an assignment worthy of … Bond. James Bond.
