TGB Episode 109: They're Called Action Figures (Guest: Liam O'Donnell)

May 17, 2012

The Golden Briefcase - Battleship

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by guest Liam O'Donnell, Skyline writer/producer and movie geek, to go through their latest Picks of the Week, talk over the new trailers for Jay Roach's comedy The Campaign and Rueben Fleischer's badass Gangster Squad and much more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on Toys and Films (in honor connection with Hasbro's Battleship hitting theaters this weekend). The guys go over how toys based on movies and vice versa have changed throughout the years and what we think is still coming, for better or worse, from this sub-genre.

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~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!

I'm very impressed with some big names coming on your show. This guy seemed like a genuinely likable down to earth fella even though he's no small fish. Very insightful too! Interesting topic for sure. Funny Liam Neeson related jokes granted! 🙂
