Dr. Snuggles and friends return for episode 55 of your guide to the truly astonishing world of softcore films, and the world’s number one podcast on that subject!
How else could we follow last episode’s look at Paul Thomas’ 1992 erotic drama The Pamela Principle but with a look at Edward Holzman’s 1994 sequel Seduce Me: Pamela Principle 2? It’s the only thing that would make sense, although sequel is probably not the right term for it, really - it’s more a reboot, to use the modern parlance. It takes the general plot of the first movie - guy having middle-life crisis has affair with younger woman named Pamela - and tries to improve the execution. Weirdly, it even has cameos from the guy who played the best friend in the first movie, and the guy who was Pamela’s ex-boyfriend.
And, if that’s not enough excitement, Drew gets a promotion, and we’re joined by Heather from Songs on Trial and Movie Melt, and also our good friend Paul C. Miller, director of Get Soft favourite Maximum Thrust! His call drops out mere seconds from the end of the show. Also the show is over three hours this week for some reason that I really can’t work out. Sorry or not sorry, depending on whether ridiculously long podcasts are your thing.
Plus, we look at the life and career of the writer of Pamela Principle 2, Gerard Maguire! Maguire only has a few writing credits, but he’s probably very well known to Australians as an actor - he was Deputy Governor Jim Fletcher in Prisoner (aka Prisoner: Cell Block H), and he’s also done around 40 years worth of voice over work. We got the chance to chat to him, amazingly, and were almost certainly the first people to ever ask him about being on The Bradys, and definitely the first to ask about Pamela Principle 2.
