Episode 2: Rocky (1976) & Rocky II (1979)

On the second episode of SlyCast: The Sylvester Stallone Fan Podcast hosts Craig Cohen, Jeff Ferry and Jeff Hulit have an in depth discussion about Rocky and Rocky II. In addition to breaking each film down, they cover Stallone's initial inspiration for the story, the original studio choices for actors to portray Rocky and why Rocky shouldn't be viewed as an unworthy Oscar winner. In between films they take a look at Sly's 1979 appearances on "The Muppet Show" and "Dinah!" prior to the release of Rocky II.

  1. Just finished the 2nd 'cast. Great observations towards Rocky 1 and 2. Rocky 2 may be one of lesser-favorite Rocky films, but it definitely has one of the best endings. What a buildup. We're screaming for Rocky to get up in the audience, the same way Pauly, Adrian, and the people in the spectrum are. Man, that's one movie theater experience I wish I could've been alive for.

  2. Thanks for the comments, Steve!
