Episode 79. SERIOUS SERIES 4: Precocious Pink Panthers

For the final installment of the Serious Series, Alex and Jonathan talk about three films of the Pink Panther comedy franchise: The Pink Panther (1963), A Shot in the Dark (1964), and The Pink Panther (2006). We discuss about how the focus of the franchise changed with the reception of the first film, the way the character of Inspector Clouseau becomes more distinct over time, and how a franchise can eventually fizzle out completely.
