Fathers on television are often the stern provider who always lends an ear, right before he smacks your reality with a hard and fast life lesson. Throughout the history of the medium, we could always count on our TV dads to guide us through any and every scenario that might arise, good and bad.

For this episode, we discuss not just what makes a great TV dad, no we dig a little deeper. Instead we look at what father-child relationships affected us the most. Some of the choices may surprise you, as we learn about the vast differences lying within our TV favorites.

We also discuss Universal’s launch of their Dark Universe with The Mummy, Megan Leavey, It Comes at Night, try out a new game called Let’s Fill In A Plot Hole, and much more.

Shimmer Lake twists the conventional wisdom of storytelling on its ear by allowing the events of a small-town crime to unfold in reverse order. Working from Friday back to Tuesday, director Oren Uziel constructs a story of despair as a local Sheriff, Zeke Sikes (Benjamin Walker), works to bring to justice three criminals who robbed the local bank. Learning that one of them may just be his brother Andy (Rainn Wilson), Zeke sets off on a trail of lies and murder. With a host of suspects, twists, and revelations, how will this path ultimately lead back to Shimmer Lake?

After graduating with a BA in Drama from Duke University and an MFA in Acting from the Yale School of Drama, Adam Saunders set his sights on a career in Hollywood. As the pursuit of his craft intensified, Adam found he also had a knack for both developing and producing projects. Often the unsung hero of film, a producer fields many behind-the-scenes responsibilities that directly contribute to our favorite films, from lining up capital and casting commitments to finalizing distribution deals.

As the CEO of Footprint Features, Adam produced Shimmer Lake and explains why this was “one the best scripts I’ve ever read”. He also elaborates on the complexities of shooting a film in reverse order, assembling the all-star cast, and how their deal with Netflix ultimately came to fruition.

Footprint Features has several exciting projects lined up, not the least of which is the newly released Shimmer Lake. Don’t miss this exclusive interview with producer, Adam Saunders.

Shimmer Lake releases on Netflix June 9, 2017  Facebook | Twitter

For decades, strong female characters have continued to grow in popular culture. Heroines have graced the silver screen from Ellen Ripley to Katniss Everdeen to the just released Wonder Woman. Likewise, television has held its own legion of women in the forms of the Bionic Woman, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Sydney Bristow. Heroism lies in everyone, but this week we’re only discussing the ladies.

On this week’s podcast, we discuss what it takes to be a hero. Is it selflessness, bravery, or just an epic level of ass-kickery? We also offer up our individual picks for the top 3 heroic female characters in TV and film.

Also this week: reviews of Wonder Woman, The Wedding Invitation, and War Machine. We also offer another installment of HO Court as we look into recent litigation regarding a lawsuit claiming the recent Alamo Drafthouse “Women’s Only” screenings is discrimination.

The Wedding Invitation follows best friends Lucy (Rainy Kerwin), Ryann (Camille Guaty), and Nectar (Christina Ulloa) as they navigate the waters of single life, each looking for a date after a last-minute invitation to the wedding of a lifetime. Lucy is a woman who has just lost her job, her boyfriend and is forced back into the dating scene at the worst time. Ryann is the bold friend overfilled with confidence, yet is still terrified of asking out the one guy she has her eye on. Nectar never seems to be in need of attention, yet everyone she spends time with is obviously the wrong match for her. The three friends endure ups-and-downs and Lucy guides us through the worst time in her life as she searches for that one special guy to whisk her off to this most exclusive wedding, and she might have found him in a charming guitar teacher.

Lighthearted and fun, The Wedding Invitation is a charming romantic comedy. For this exclusive interview, writer-director-star, Rainy Kerwin discusses the path her film has traveled to finally arrive as her feature film debut. She elaborates on what prompted her to craft this story of sisterhood and women making the first move, and why the actors were such a fit for Rainy's passion project.

An engaging interview with a new voice in comedy, take a listen to our interview with director and star, Rainy Kerwin.

We might have taken the week off here at The Hollywood Outsider, but that does not mean we do not have quality podcast entertainment to offer!

In additions to our reviews of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Baywatch, we selected three of our most popular topics so far this year and combined them into on mammoth episode.

We begin with binge-worthy TV shows, then a bit of necessary Oscar changes, and finally we discuss how television has changed since we were children. If you are new to the show, here is a highlight reel of what listeners enjoyed earlier in the year, and if you are a long-time listener, enjoy three of your favorite topics all on one episode!

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.

Be Afraid follows John and Heather Chambers (Brian Krause, Jaimi Paige), shortly after relocating to a small town in Pennsylvania. After he initially seems to experience sleep paralysis, John begins to discover that his home is being targeted by ominous beings lurking in the shadows, seemingly led by a nefarious figure known only as The Hat Man. Fearing for his family's safety, John dives into a complex history of mysterious local disappearances which may lead to a secret this town never wants revealed.

Drew Gabreski's latest film, Be Afraid, carries with it an intriguing concept revolving around the deep history and lore of "shadow people". This phenomenon - which revolves around those unique moments when we catch a flicker of movement in the corner of our eye only to discover nothing is present - continues to grow around the world. Skeptics believe these "shadows" are mere flights of an overactive imagination, while more open-minded intellectuals theorize they could be anything from ghosts to interdimensional beings to even time travelers.

Whatever they are, as he discusses in our exclusive interview, Drew was directly affected by visions of a so-called "Hat Man" as a child. These memories prompted him to work with screenwriter Gerald Nott on a shared vision of how a story in this world could be brought to life on film. Drew elaborates on those experiences, as well as the journey the film took from the initial stages at After Dark to its current release on VOD.

An intriguing interview with a new talent on-the-rise, take a listen to our interview with director, Drew Gabreski.

Be Afraid releases digitally and On Demand June 1, 2017.
