TGB Episode 156: To Boldly Go - Star Trek in Film (Guest: Jordan Hoffman)

May 15, 2013

TGB - Star Trek

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by Jordan Hoffman (from, and Badass Digest) to go over their latest picks of the week, the newest DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for Paul Greengrass' Captain Phillips and Alfonso CaurĂ³n's Gravity and much more. The main topic of the night was Star Trek in film, in honor of Into Darkness hitting this weekend. The guys go over the expansive Trek filmography and touch on the high and low points of the series. Jordan also lends his extensive knowledge of the TV show universe and they also talk about where they'll go next.

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.

Mixed Martial Arts is actually a fantastic sport if you give it a chance. MMA is my #2 passion after Movies...and it is the ONLY sport that I follow at all. Warrior was a great film, as well.

Good stuff! Cool guest. Don't know the Star Trek franchise, but it still was interesting to listen to.

Jordan Hoffman was a kickass guest host. Please get him back sooner rather than later.
