Olympus Has Fallen
Play • 48 min

This time I'm discussing the first movie outing of Secret Service agent Mike Banning, a man who attracts president-related disasters like I attract dog hair from my cream retriever when I've just put on new black trousers for a job interview. 

He's on a boring desk job at the US Treasury (Mike, not my dog), having failed to save the First Lady from an icy, watery grave. But when a North Korean terrorist overwhelms the White House and takes President Asher hostage, it's left to Mike to save the day. 

My partner in crime is film writer, Jame Bond aficionado and former primetime actor Ben Peyton from the For Your Films Only website, who knows a thing of two about fictional law enforcement having played PC Ben Hayward in the  long-running British TV show "The Bill" for two years. 

We answer THE most important Olympus Has Fallen questions: how long before Mike stabs someone in the head? How many people in total does Mike stab in the head? How do your type a hashtag under pressure? Would Gerard Butler have made a good Bond? And why did Ben's helmet explode?  

Plus my usual warning: this podcast is very spoilery.
