Your friends in podcasting celebrate the life of the woman who broke the news about the start of World War II and the life of a man who redefined literary and cinematic terror (and turned a certain staircase in Georgetown into a major tourist attraction). Then, after sharing some thoughts about a childhood friend who died this past week, Phil follows up on last week’s show by sharing with Dean some thoughts about “Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds” and sharing a story about how George Michael (and Wham!) helped inspire one of the most famous songs by The Smiths. There will also be much discussion of television, from the return of “Sherlock” and the news surrounding “The Man in the High Castle” to the Producers Guild Award nominations and a forthcoming show set backstage at “The Tonight Show” in the 1970′s. Finally, Phil gets on his soapbox as he and Dean address the controversy surrounding Meryl Streep’s speech at the Golden Globes and the overwhelming accolades being bestowed upon La La Land. All that, plus a frank discussion about “perceived vegetative states” AND a ton of laughs on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
Dean Haglund is back from Australia where he was busy laying the groundwork for his full-time move down under in May. While he was there, he Skyped with Phil Leirness because, well, your friends in podcasting miss each other when they are apart AND because there was the big news about the return of “The X-Files” to discuss. Part of this week’s show will be that (recorded) conversation, wherein they also discuss Gillian Anderson’s “other” current series, the absolutely terrific “The Fall”.
Back in L.A. there’s plenty of TV news to discuss, including Emmy Awards rulings, a new host for “The Daily Show”, the return of “Coach”, the possible return of “Twin Peaks” and the “Sherlock” Christmas special. Before his trip, Dean performed and gave a fantastic presentation about Chaplin and City Lights at the Los Angeles Breakfast Club. This will get discussed as the “Live Event of the Week” before Dean and Phil launch into movie news featuring the latest on Eddie Murphy, Idris Elba, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bradley Cooper. All that, plus two puzzling emails from listeners.

Cataclysmic storms, divisive Presidential elections, erstwhile Italian Prime Ministers sentenced to prison, Disney making more Star Wars films, unnecessarily Americanized/Anglicized versions of compelling stories, the end of the Mayan Calendar, Dean Haglund action figures and a “Sherlock Holmes” television series that is more House than Holmes …
On this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, your friends in podcasting attempt to make sense of a world gone wild.
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 …
