Dean and Phil compare hilarious notes on their Thanksgivings, Phil shares tales of his birthday adventures, updates on his sister’s medical status, and relays what a birthday card he received from a loyal listener and friend to the show inspired. Phil quizzes Dean on a few ad lines from movies to see if Dean can guess the films they describe. In “Celebrity Deaths”, a groundbreaking TV executive, a chart-topping doo-wop singer, a beloved voice actor, a civil rights trailblazer, a former mayor of New York, and a fascinating pop culture icon get remembered. David E. Kelley has a new television series mired in controversy and that controversy will lead to a discussion of “Law and Order” and Q Anon! Finally, Dean and Phil share a couple of their favorite all-time episodes of television, one from “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and the other from “Homicide: Life on the Street”.
An action-packed hour if ever there was one! Dean and Phil discuss the reading of Phil’s new screenplay, compare notes on their Thanksgiving adventures, weigh in on the SAG strike authorization vote, preview more than a dozen early December film releases, and discuss the Spirit Award Nominations ( indie film’s “Oscars”). They also send out birthday wishes to Phil’s collaborator on Karl Rove, I Love You, Mr. Dan Butler (”Bulldog” on TV’s “Frasier”), who turns 54 years young today (check out the interview we did with Dan Butler in Chillpak Hollywood Hour #63). And if that weren’t enough, they offer several bits of practical advice for indie filmmakers. And Phil gets spanked.
