TGB Breakdown Ep 15: Wright's Cornetto Trilogy

On this episode of The Golden Briefcase Breakdown, Tim & Jeremy are joined by Evan Saathoff, aka "Sam Strange" of Badass Digest (on Episode #170) for a spoiler-filled discussion on Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost's Cornetto Trilogy, made up of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End. The purpose of Breakdown episodes is to to ponder, discuss and challenge the films that we feel often need more than just a simple review. We breakdown the film to discuss plots and theories in order to better understand the director's vision and hopefully challenge our listeners at home to re-evaluate the way they watch cinema.

Extra episodes of TGB Breakdown will be arriving about every month, and will appear here in addition to all of our regular weekly Golden Briefcase episodes. Beware - every episode of TGB Breakdown will contain SPOILERS for the film in discussion (this one for all three Cornetto movies). You've been WARNED!

You guys misnumbered TGBB episode 16 as TGBB episode 15 and overwrote the mp3 file for this episode with the john carpenter episode from November.
