Can any of you explain to me the appeal of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer tv show? I tried to watch it for the first time and I'm stalling halfway through the second episode. I know I'm supposed to like it, but I'm just not getting it. What am I missing?
I'll tell you what I'm not missing: Batman #5, because it's right here!:
Batman's success on eHarmony was minimal at best.
So we see Bats kiss some random chick, but that's not the worst of it. No, my friends, I give you this:
Don't ask him what it's for, Bruce! That's the bait!
Yeah. This happened. It was the first of many times that Batman and Robin would hop in Dr. What'shisface's machines and travel through time and whatnot. It was a pretty lazy writing device, but, hey... comics were a dime.
You know, costume notwithstanding, I'm normally a Robin supporter. But shut up, Robin. (tm!)
Note the "rich, clear voice" of Batman. Somewhere we got away from that, because every version of Bats post Adam West is pretty dang raspy.
"Golly"? Shut up, Robin. (tm!)
So, how bad is it?
I'll spare you most of it. Suffice it to say that it's this bad:
But there's Batman and Robin fighting a dragon, so there's that:
Which, unfortunately, is immediately followed by:
And then, I kid you not, they climb a beanstalk and:
Well, that was a little gross, but kind of awesome.
Am I the only one humming the "Super Mario Brothers" theme in their head right now? Because this whole thing read like a really bad NES platform game.
"I'm going home to read my own fairytale book all over again!"
Not that I'm discouraging reading, or reading fairytales for that matter, but ... seriously, SHUT UP, Robin! (tm!)
