#30 " I'm a triple A rated executive protection agent" The Best Bodyguard Debate

Can you imagine having done something that changes how to live so much that you'd have to start considering hiring a bodyguard?

Inspired by 1992's "The Bodyguard", The Reel Debaters look at movie history's guardians and leave safety at the door in the weeks episode.

Premise: Come up with a unique backstory and situation as to why you would need the services of a bodyguard. Pick any character that you deem fit and argue why that character would make a great agent of protection in your situation.

Rules: No super powers, one bodyguard only, no enhancements

Points are awarded based on the 3 above categories so bring your A game.

In the living room this week is Mark Cowell, Chris Stanton, Micheal Petrow and special guest Denzel Leblanc from Wesley Studios Podcast.

Trailer of the week: New Mutants (April 2020)

About Us

Could James Bond be a Chef? Should The Ghostbusters have their own restaurant? What would Indiana Jones and Lara Croft's wedding look like? Maybe you want to find out if Conan The Barbarian could teach Sex Ed?

Welcome to The Reel Debaters, where real life meets reel life...

Each week you’ll hear 4 debaters sit down as they come up with a new tussle where they compare, contrast and insult each other with their takes for your listening pleasure. They'll either insert themselves into a story or see how they fare or bring the characters into real life scenarios that make less than no sense. As a bonus you'll get access from within the film industry and listen to "reel talks" about our favorite moments, scenes and stories.

Tune Thursday for a new episode and if there’s something you wanna hear beaten to death send us an email thereeldebaters@gmail.com
