    Chillpak Hollywood Hour #432 - Diversity, The Art of Acting, Batgirl, New T.V.

    in Film

    Your friends in podcasting return with another action-packed installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, keeping hot drinks hot and cool drinks cool through irreverent, insightful and occasionally inspiring conversation. On this week’s show, Yvonne (“Batgirl”) Craig is remembered, two new movie releases are reviewed, a great actor from the Golden Age of Hollywood (and beyond) is celebrated, the art of acting, (and what makes “great” acting) is delved into, and the results of the recent actors’ union election are pored over. Meanwhile, fatigue over the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems to be spreading to … Marvel Studios itself! Longtime listeners know that the issue of diversity is never far from the minds or creative impulses of Phil Leirness and Dean Haglund and on this week’s show they applaud the revival of “The X-Files” for embracing diversity and discuss several actors new to the show’s cast. All that, plus three new television series are reviewed and one just announced new show is previewed.

    #038: Madness is the Emergency Exit: The Killing Joke

    in Art

    With the announcement of legendary Batman voice cast Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill voicing Batman and Joker in the 2016 animated film adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland's 1988 one shot graphic novel "Batman: The Killing Joke", Londyn and her co-host Adam Silverstein go in depth and discuss why this comic remains an iconic story within the Batman mythos today. "The Killing Joke" still stands as perhaps the best origin story for The Joker, contains one of the most tragic moments in DC Comics history with the shooting and paralyzation of Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl and presents a brilliant underlying tale of the ultimate battle between good and evil within the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime. Listen in and learn why "Batman: The Killing Joke" is my personal favorite Batman graphic novel and a triumph in the comic book medium. Listen as we talk all about it on this episode of History of the Batman with Londyn! Presented by Meltdown Comics!

    Tribute to Yvonne Craig

    in Entertainment

    Although she only played Batgirl for one season (the final season) on Batman that role defined Yvonne Craig; But she was so much more. Sharing the screen with legends like Bing Crosby and William Shatner ;) she was an Orion Slave Girl in the Star Trek Episode For Whom Gods Destory. Tonight's show is a tribute to this beautiful, multitalented actress. And advocate for equal pay for equal work. I remember seeing this commerical when it orginally aired back in the early 70s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n00xZ_mKQgk. See if you can spot what's missing..
