On this week’s Scottscope podcast, we’ll be talking about Broke, Billy Corben’s latest entry in ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary series.  Professional atheletes seem to have a hard time holding on to their money.  Why exactly does this keep happening?  Why are NFL players so susceptible?  Are the players the only ones to blame?  What can be done to ensure that this sort of thing is kept to a minimum in professional sports?  Has Billy Corben outdone himself this time?  How does Broke compare to The U?     

We’ll also be discussing the 50th Anniversary of everyone’s favorite agent provocateur, James Bond.  Who was the best James Bond?  Was it Connery?  Who was the absolute worst Bond?  What is the best Bond film of all time?  Who should be the next Bond?  Was Casino Royale one of the best reboots ever?  Will Skyfall be worth the wait?  How has the series compared to Ian Fleming’s vision for the character?

Scott and Vashawn will also be reviewing Taken 2.  How does it measure up to the original?  Does it actually continue the story, or is it just a rehash?  Is it an example of the Die Hard syndrome, where the same exact thing happens to the same guy twice?  Can Liam Neeson be considered true action star now? 

The roundtable will also weigh in on the first trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard.  Does it look like it’ll be worth the price of admission?  Does the world really need yet another Die Hard film?  Is Bruce Willis getting too old for these kinds of films?  Is the original truly the greatest action film ever made?  Should it be remade with a new, younger star?
