Beyond The Box Set

250 EpisodesProduced by Harry Chappell & John LucasWebsite

At Beyond The Box Set, we believe every great movie deserves a questionable sequel. Each week, we take a stand-alone cinema classic and compete to come up with the best, worst and most bizarre pitches to bring them back to the big screen.

The Big Lebowski 2: Finding Donny (feat. Genuine Chit Chat)

With an endlessly quoteable script from The Coen Brothers and career-defining performances from Jeff Bridges and John Goodman, The Big Lebowski is probably the ultimate slacker comedy. Mike Burton from Genuine Chit Chat joins us this week to discuss his abiding love of the movie - and to help us to pitch a few sequels.

Tune in as we discuss White Russians, incomprehensible kidnapping plots, John's strong erotic reaction to Jeff Bridges acid dancing and how this movie unexpectedly brought out Harry's reactionary side. 

As always, after we're done waxing nostalgic about the movie, we move on to pitching our own fantasy sequel ideas - all of which mysterious hinge on the tragic fate of Donny, the unsung hero of The Dude's bowling team. Can our storytelling skills finally grant him the justice he deserves? There's only one way to find out...

Beyond The Box Set is a British movie podcast that blends comedy, movie chat and creative storytelling to ludicrous effect. Each week our two hosts take on a classic standalone movie - Titanic, Gladiator etc. - and attempt to pitch fantasy sequel ideas to bring them back to the big screen. We've been featured by The Guardian, Podbean and Apple Podcasts as a must-listen show, and over 150 listeners have granted us a 'Five-Star' rating on iTunes. Not that we like to brag or anything...

If you enjoy the show, please consider hitting subscribe for a new episode every Friday morning, and drop us a review if you're feeling extra generous. It really does help us to find new listeners, and we'd totally love you forever. 

For listeners who truly can't get enough, we also offer exclusive bonus content on Patreon, where for as little as $2 per month you can access our weekly bonus show 'Beyond BTBS', grab a 30 second on-air promo slot to advertise anything you like, and pick a movie for us to cover on a future episode of the main show. We also have merchandise available on Teepublic.
