This week, it’s a blast from the past as we delve into comic book adaptations with our first Comic Fliction segment. First up are Batman and Batman Returns, two movies that were instrumental in changing the public’s perception of comic book movies. Everything’s up for grabs as we debate how far of a departure this was from the the ’66 series. We talk about Mr Mom as Batman, whether or not Vicki Vale was necessary, the timelessness of Gotham, Danny Elfman’s score, the grotesquery of The Penguin, what was up with Catwoman and so much more.

This episode Sam, Stephanie, and Will join the cast.
