E41 – Batman: Mask of the Phantasm



Batman: Mask of the Phantasm reveals the Dark Knight’s origins, but at least we don’t have to see Tom and Martha getting shot for the billionth time.

As the Phantasm terrorizes Gotham mobsters, Michael examines his biases against the DCEU, and realizes the unenviable job of the people who are working on the franchise. Meanwhile, Peter compares Batman to major religious figures, and both consider the tools of pre-Batman vigilante Bruce Wayne.

Also included: repeated use of the phrase “the less said the better” referring to Batman’s more shameful media appearances, a pointless explanation of who Batman is, Will Smith’s Suicide Squad music video

Next episode: Tenchi Universe episodes 1-13


E12 – Batman and Mr. Freeze: SubZero



While discussing Batman’s second animated feature, Peter comes up with the best movie idea ever.  Meanwhile, Michael wonders if Batman’s backstory needs to be explained, and the two go off book for a moment to discuss the acting chops of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Next week: Robotech episodes 1-12.
