Bourne Series Episode 1

A film from before Matt Damon was Bourne!

Jason Bourne has existed in Robert Ludlum novels for over 35 years. For mainstream audiences, however, he came to life when Matt Damon starred as the amnesiac secret agent in 2002. That action-packed rendition now defines the character, and has totally overshadowed Bourne’s first portrayal — in a 1988 ABC miniseries. The story was much closer to Ludlum’s original novel than the later films, but can Richard Chamberlain match Damon’s performance? To find out, join Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart as this new retrospective series is Bourne! And come back each week until we review the new Jason Bourne film in theaters!
