The Last Row Podcast returns to cover the oddity of the Caped Crusader franchise, Batman Returns. Drew and Badway discuss too many villains, going Full Burton, Batman burning a man alive, Bruce Wayne making Alfred supply wood to the largest fireplace in the world, and the act of being raised by penguins.
The Dynamic Podcasting Duo of The Last Row Podcast do something truly heroic by finding some positivity (along with some gentle bashing) in 1997’s disastrous film Batman & Robin. Important topics include: not being able to take MacGregor’s Disease seriously, Badway’s adventures in driver’s ed, Alfred faking sick, Bane’s trenchcoat, and Mr. Freeze’s misguided fundraising tactics.
Just like Batman is Forever, Drew and Badway apparently are Forever, as the The Last Row Podcast returns from a long hiatus to tackle the Caped Crusader in all of Gotham’s neon 90’s glory. Topics include: Being “done” with Bruce’s dead parents, Val Kilmer’s performance and legacy as Batman/Bruce Wayne, a spirited Alfred Pennyworth comparison, Dr. Chase Meridian’s steamy one-track mind, how Two-Face and The Riddler rank on the all new Villain Scale, and many more odds and ends, including the effectiveness of Scuba Thugs. Thanks for listening, it’s great to be back!
We’ll see you again on Thursday, January 28, when we tackle the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic, True Lies.
