Dubb: mooseyfate: AngryPanda: mooseyfate: 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 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.

Hamill still lends his talents to DC Universe Online.


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.

Happy to fight you


While an awesome show in it's own right, Gargoyles wasn't as good as BTAS. Close. Damn close. But not better.

He recently voiced Joker in the newest DLC.

germ78: /on second thought, maybe not
//in hindsight, I'd rather not have Picard sully his reputation in that bomb


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.

mooseyfate: 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 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.

I personally think both are awesome. Batman: Dark Knight movies... ehh, wake me when a real good one comes out.

I think I may have served you a subpoena once.
...It was a small subpoena.

It's funny, I basically agree, and yet when I sit down and think about it episode by episode, I realize there's an alarming number of crappy episodes.

But when that show was clicking ...

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?
