Another vote for thinking Conroy. It would have been cool to have Conroy and Bale meet at some point. At least Nolan gave a nod to TAS when Batman had the white eyes when he turned on the sonar vision near the end of The Dark Knight.

I like the batman stuff for all the gadgets and fight scenes and stuff. Like the same reasons I'd go check out yet another James Bond movie. But this dressing like a bat thing is starting to look kinda childish. I'd like to see Alfred suggest that he try going out one night without the pointy ears. Just to see that he will still be ok without them.

Actually, I was referring to him being a Deadhead....hanging with the band....and his love/involvement with comics. I didn't really read about his politics - just that he was one.

I seem to remember Bill Weld when he was Governor of Massachusetts taking time to announce the Grateful Dead at the Boston Garden.

Someone asked him why he would make time for this he answered it was because he was the Governor and he could.

I can respect a guy like that. He's a fan and because of that he got a chance to do something he likely never would have. Good for him.

one mof my favorite memories was back when the Panasonic 3DO came out. I was checking it out at Circuit City, and they had a display set up with an MPEG decoder card installed. They were demoing the 3DO with a vcd of "Heart of Ice".

this was of course before DVDs and such nonsense. I almost bought one then and there.... until the 700 dollar price tag brought me back to reality.

Went across the street to Babbage's and bought a Sega Saturn. BLUE, BLUE SKIES!!! BLUE BLUE SKIES I SEE! I WANNA FLYYYY SKY HIGH!!!!! LET'S GOOOO TOGETHAAAAA! DAYTONAAAAAA!!!!

/Maybe he could have taught Christian Bale how to stop rasping.

Me, too! I wonder if we started a kick starter to have Kevin Conroy redub the Batman movies, he would. That be farking awesome.

I've been trying to think of a way for Mark Hamill to be the Joker in live action.


I'm against that. Mark Hamill is one of the greatest voice actors EVAR but he's a terrible live action actor. He knows his strengths.

piney: hmm...we got most of the obligatory Batman comments here:

"Bale's Batman voice sucks" (not really)
"Batman:The Animated Series" is the best (people have very forgiving memories)
Hamil and Conroy are the best Joker and Batman
A shot at the Bane voice

All we need is a Goatse post and we're done here


The animation of the first season may not have aged particularly well, but it did from season 2 onwards, and the voice acting and writing for ALL the seasons is still top notch to this day, better in fact than damn near anything on tv today that doesn't air on HBO or AMC. Don't know where you pulled that "forgiving memory" shiat from. That show is still a great watch 20 years later.

I think as of Arkham City, Conroy is done with Batman stuff.


Hamill definitely is, but as far as I know, Conroy hasn't made any such announcements. Hopefully he doesn't, either. The other Batman voice actors never grew on me the way Conroy did.

alwaysjaded: Madbassist1: alwaysjaded: Another vote for thinking Conroy. It would have been cool to have Conroy and Bale meet at some point. At least Nolan gave a nod to TAS The farking comic series when Batman had the white eyes when he turned on the sonar vision near the end of The Dark Knight.

WTF is wrong with people?

/had those same white slits for what, a hundred years?

Oh fark me, I'm sorry. I haven't read the comics in ages. Have another fanboy spaz attack about it though, I'm sure it's good for your health.


I havent read the comics in longer than you, cause I've doubt you've ever read them, or you would have never said that.

I'll second that, and "Heart of Ice" is one of the greatest episodes of any television show, ever, IMO.


Patrick Stewart should have played Mr. Freeze in B&R instead of Ahnuld.

You forgot "The Dark Knight runs too long." Which it does because of Dent's third act transformation into Two-Face.

First episode aired in 1992. I was 6. Changed the way I saw Batman forever. But not Batman Forever. That movie was worse than ass-cancer.

Right, but he stated publicly that he was retiring from voice acting after Arkham City. Or maybe just from the Joker character. Dc Universe came out way before Arkhan City, and I'm sure the amount of dialogue he has to record for that is much less consuming than the amount of dialogue he'd have to record for a movie/tv show/story driven video game.

You know, you say that, but have you actually seen Stewart's filmography?

Not that I'd knock him, dude is clearly having a hell of a time. I'd probably be doing exactly what he's doing myself, but he doesn't exactly always pick quality projects.

I think it is just okay:

I have been watching it regularly for the last few months because I wanted my son to see them and he is about the right age now. (I kind of check stuff just in case it may not be totally appropriate)

I just feel like the show gets a bit romanticized by fans. Little too much like the hokey Batman from the silver age, or from the old Adam West show at times. There are a handful of really good episodes but for the most part it is just okay.

If I were 13 it would be great, but I'm not, so it isn't.

In that genre I think the Justice League holds up better. (I don't think it would be fair to put it against a show like "The Venture Bros." since they are for different audiences.)

/also I never realized how many sexual references were in that show. I watched one recently where Harley comes out of a pie, sings to the Joker and tell him something like "Once you get a taste of my pie you'll come back for seconds". (paraphrasing probably, but there are a lot of instances like that).

Agreed. That damn "Goliath Chronicles" crap totally dragged down the franchise. But the seasons that came before that were television gold.

This would be a lot more cool if Leahy wasn't great friends with Chris Dodd, or if he didn't regularly vote for more protectionist legislation for Hollywood.

How is this not seen as an unethical gift? I mean, I've been led to believe that "the casting couch" is a real thing, not just a porn plot device - and certain celebrities have admitted to at least being pressured to perform sex acts in exchange for being cast. If people are willing to suck some fat sweaty 60-year-old dick to get on a movie set, how is giving a gushing fanboy Senator a part not illegal?
