TGB Episode 80: The Prequel to the Remake (Guest: Elisabeth Rappe)

October 13, 2011

The Golden Briefcase - The Thing Prequel

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by guest Elisabeth Rappe of, to go over their latest Picks of the Week, the newest in DVD & Blu-Ray releases, chat about the new trailers for James McTeigue's The Raven and Marvel's The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, and much more! The main topic of the night was a discussion on prequels in honor of The Thing coming out this Friday. The group discusses what makes a good prequel and some notable ones and some that are best forgotten. They also ponder potential prequels that may or may not work for some existing movies. Enjoy!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 7:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!
