TGB Episode 127: Universal Monsters Show (Guest: John Gholson)

October 4, 2012

TGB - Universal Monsters

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by John Gholson from to go through their latest Picks of the Week, new in DVD & Blu-Ray releases, new trailers for DreamWorks Animation's The Croods and Gore Virbinski's The Lone Ranger and plenty more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on Universal Monsters (like Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy), in honor of both Frankenweenie and Hotel Transylvania in theaters. The guys go over their personal favorites of the Universal Monsters roster and talk about how they have been used outside of the Universal Movies.

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!
