Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 53 of your guide to the truly astonishing world of softcore films, and the world’s number one podcast on that subject!
We’re heading back to that familiar old story, of a hotel, in a town called Desert Hot Springs, run by two siblings named Randy and Kat. See, they were living by themselves in a flat, when they got a telegram telling them that their rich Aunt Betty had died, and left them a hotel. A Hot Springs Hotel. What a tale! What a concept for a softcore comedy TV show! This time, we check out episodes 7, 8 and 9: Rock Star, Bachelorette Party, and Theo and the Model. Yes, finally Theo gets his time in the sun! And as a bonus: the rock star in episode 7 plays a 1983 Casio DG-20 Digital Guitar. Just like Brett in that one episode of Flight of the Conchords!
Plus, we talk about the life and career of episode 7’s titular rock star, guest star Phillip Rhys. After Hot Springs Hotel, his career went from strength to strength: he was intergalactic pop star Proto Zoa in the Disney Channel movie Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century (still the role he’s most recognised for apparently), was in season 2 of 24 (one of the better seasons, for what it’s worth), and was just recently in George R.R. Martin sci-fi series Nightflyers (unclear if anyone has watched the entire series though). Also, he went to school with Jamie Oliver, and was on an episode of Heston’s Feasts.
