git: Pull and checkout a remote branch

Say you have a branch on github, and you want pull it down onto your own machine? ok
git checkout -b branch_name origin/branch_name

It works fine just checking out a new branch with a matching name, given you have the appropriate (default) matching setting, and you have pulled since the branch was created on origin.

git pull
git checkout -b branch_name
