TGB Episode 120: The Plague of Recent Reboots (Guest: Jeff Bayer)
by Tim Buel
August 9, 2012
On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by Jeff Bayer of the Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider podcast to discuss their latest Picks of the Week, new DVD & Blu-Ray releases, trailers for Paranormal Activity 4, Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty and Killing Them Softly and much more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on Hollywood's continuous reboot frenzy, in honor of Bourne Legacy hitting theaters. The guys talk about some of the great films that have been rebooted and also name some bad examples. They also go over properties or genres that they think could do with a reboot.
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!

Thanks for the shout out for THE BOOTH AT THE END. Quick thing: The link you provide is to Wikipedia... which lays out the entire plot of Season 1, but doesn't offer any way to find the show. So, if anyone is interested, here's the link to the show's home page on HULU. http://www.hulu.com/the-booth-at-the-end

Legacy isn't a reboot.

If you'd just listen to the episode, they state WHAT it is and how it just inspired the reboot topic.
