Episode 5 - Batman (1989)

Gentlemen! Let's broaden our minds!

Pack your grappling hooks in with all your other wonderful toys, because on this episode our dynamic duo dives headfirst into a boiling vat of Tim Burton's Batman!

Did Batman kill more people than the Joker over the course of this movie? Is Vicki Vale only investigating Bruce Wayne because he's constantly assaulting her? Is this sleek, jet-powered Batmobile so perfect as to replace the Condorman car chase in our hearts? And what the heck does "never rub another man's rhubarb" mean anyway?

Find out the answers to most of those (Rhubarb... still no idea.) and more as the guys talk entirely too much about Batman! Relax, enjoy, just whatever you do, don't try to slightly turn your head to the side.

PLUS! We're not going to kill you. We want you to tell all your friends about us. What are we? On facebook!

Editor's Note: We record these weeks in advance, but just before this episode came out, we got word that the Baltimore Batman himself, Leonard Robinson, died in a car accident.

If you haven't heard of him, Leonard built himself a screen-accurate Batman costume and went around to children's hospitals visiting sick kids, and giving away up to $25,000 in Batman toys, t-shirts and comics to them every year, out of his own pocket.

You know those "Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman" memes going around a while back? Leonard Robinson decided he could be Batman. And he made the world a better place for it.

This episode is for Leonard.
