POWcast! EP #3 - The Siren

Post by Jimmy L. 66 »

You can all get some sleep finally, I have finished the third glorious episode of the POWcast! and it will go live tonigh at 8pm PST.
This episode features a deep dive into the Siren with very special guest, the board's very own "High C".
J.P. shares his vast knowledge of the Siren/Joan Collins as well as discussing the original script for "The Wail of the Siren" and the teaser script for the episode as well. What was left out and why? what could they shot, even with the season three budget? give us a listen and find out.
I also have another "Hollywood History" chat with Donelle Dadigan- owner and curator of the Hollywood Museum.
Live at 8pm PST, listen anytime after that.

Great job, Jimmy!!

This guest really knows his stuff about The Siren. I have to get in touch with him sometime! :lol:

My hobbies include gazing at the Siren and doing her bidding, evil or otherwise.

Thank you for the kind words Sir!
More fun on the horizon as I get the hang of the editing.

"The Wail of the Siren" is one of the most straight forward episodes with much of the campy dialog avoided. If the show had been made as a traditional adventure show. The others episodes I think of a similar vein: "The Purr-fect Crime", "A Riddle A Day Keeps The Riddler Away" and "The Minstrel's Shakedown". They kept the dialog, for the most part, natural.
