Batman At The Movies!
In what will hopefully be our biggest episode in recorded history, Tom and Derrick spend close to two hours examining the history of the Caped Crusader in television and movies, from his status as the first DC hero to hit the silver screen to his position as Money-Making Franchise God to his ignoble downfall and subsequent redemption, we talk about everything Dark Knight. Whether it's movie serial, cartoon or live action televsion, the Boys Outta Brooklyn examine it...plus they debate the charms of Katie Holmes, defend Joel Schummaker (you heard that right!) and reveal who was supposed to be the cast of Batman Forever. You see that signal in the sky--it's time to Bat-Click!
Better in the Dark Gets Super on TV!
To celebrate Thanksgiving month, Tom and Derrick team up with Views from the Longbox host — and Superman maven — Michael Bailey to examine Superman in the media! This time up, the trio tackles Superman on television and radio. From Bud Collyer and George Reeves to Dean Cain and Tom Welling, The Guys Outta Brooklyn cover all the cathode ray tube adventures of the Man of Steel (oh, and the radio show, too). Plus, midgets in dog suits, an examination of the mystery surrounding Reeves' death, the truth about how Derrick parties, and the musical version of Supes. We're more powerful than Rex Reed's lisp, so get to clicking!
Better in the Dark Gets Super in the Movie Theater
In the second part of our Thanksgiving month spectacular, Tom and Derrick continues their chat with Views from the Longbox host — and Superman maven — Michael Bailey about Superman in the media! This time up, the trio tackles Superman in the movies. From the trendsetting Fleischer cartoons to the classic Christopher Reeve movies to the... ummmm... not-so-classic Bryan Singer version, this titanic trio tackles it all! Plus, the Superman films we didn't get (here's a hint: be happy we got what we got), Derrick defends Superman's right to stalk Lois, and Mike really doesn't like Kate Bosworth much... or at all. It's all about the whipped cream on the pumpkin pie, so get to clicking!
Better in the Dark Joins the Justice League!
Because you demanded it, The Guys Outta Brooklyn once more welcome Michael Bailey of Views from the Longbox fame to discuss DC's premiere supergroup: The Justice League of America. From the Filmation shorts to the groundbreaking Bruce Timm / Paul Dini television series to the dubious charms of the Smallville version of the team, The Titanic Trio covers it all. Plus Tom applies for a job, what it means when the Super Friends send you off to college, and Derrick delves deep into The Andrea Romano Conspiracy! Even if you didn't wash your hands because you're evil, you need to get to clicking!
BITD Autopsy on DC Live Projects
The scalpels are out, the body is on the table, and it's time for The Boys Outta Brooklyn to figure out why another media body is on the slab! Join Tom and Derrick as they examine the failure of
DC Comics and Warner Brothers to rise to the challenge Marvel has been making towards them for the last few years, and why their bids to create a new franchise - from this summer's generic Green
Lantern to the rather wrongheaded attempt to recast Wonder Woman as the heroine of a David E. Kelley action comedy to proposed movies with The Flash (it's Se7en crossed with CSI) and Hawkman - have
met with lukewarm response at best. Plus, Muppets in the boardroom, the question of whether X-ray vision can be used to stalk, and why the Ultimate Universe is like an appendix. You don't want
Elizabeth Hurley calling you a big-boobed action figure, so get to clicking!
