The Weekly Stuff Podcast #154 - The Jason Bourne Trilogy Retrospective Spectacular!

It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.

With Jason Bourne, the new entry in the beloved action franchise starring Matt Damon and directed by Paul Greengrass, arriving in theatres this Friday, we thought now the best time to take a look back at the original Jason Bourne trilogy: The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Ultimatum. These are some of the best, most innovative, and most influential films of the 2000s, an action trilogy that surpasses just about every other major Hollywood franchise of this era, and which seems even more prescient and ahead-of-its-time now than it did nine years ago, when the last film was released. We discuss each film in depth, diving into the story, characters, technical mastery, and fascinating historical context, in what is easily one of my favorite podcasts we’ve ever recorded.


The Weekly Stuff with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman is a weekly audio podcast, and if you subscribe in iTunes, episodes will be delivered automatically and for free as soon as they are released. If you visit, we also have streaming and downloadable versions of new and archival episodes for your listening pleasure.

  1. I couldn't help at the time of the movies notice the parallels between Jason Bourne and Wolverine in the first two X-Men movies. Both were made into weapons by secret government organizations. Lose their memories. Seek out their Creators. It is revealed that both Bourne and Wolverine volunteered for their respective procedures. I'm sure there are more comparisons but of course this arc is done better with Bourne.
