For Screen and Country Presents: What Were They Thinking? – Hackers

Jason is away so please enjoy an episode of Brendan’s other podcast What Were They Thinking? featuring Jason guest-starring to talk about the classic film Hackers.


Nathan and Brendan welcome back Jason to talk about a seminal guilty pleasure film – Hackers. The guys talk about the “iconic” internet movie from the chain smoking Baby Bradford to Lorraine Bracco’s confusion regarding computer lingo. They also discuss the Plague as an intimidating villain and kids being able to access the roof of their school. Plus: Jason hearkens back to a day when one could take all night to download an episode of your favourite TV show.


Next week: Jason returns and your hosts go back to And Now for Something Completely Similar… starting with the 2004 remake of Alfie.
