In this week's episode of the Branded in the 80s podcast I take a minute to talk about finding new perspectives on the pop culture that we know and love so much that it's started to lose some of its luster.  To this effect I reconsider the character of Billy Francis Kopeke from the 1988 Penny Marshall film Big.  After viewing the alternate director's cut of the film Kopeke becomes a much more nuanced character that not only has an expanded story, but it's one that changes the tone and overall theme of the film.  If you'd like to chat, you can find me on twitter or instagram at @smurfwreck, or you can send me an e-mail to smurfwreck@gmail.com.
