And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2021 - 09:37 AM)

Lucky there's a hero arriving in July.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 June 2021 - 05:38 PM)

I think I've heard "I Need a Hero" more times this past week than I have in the past several years.

@  tigerhawk : (16 June 2021 - 12:41 PM)

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

This is the first DTV in awhile that's actually looked interesting.  Weird that they didn't spotlight any of the voice cast though.

Why? They proved Mignola designs could work in animation years ago with Mr. Freeze in BTAS.

Because static images and moving ones are different. If they did a direct lift of the style of the book, most of the movie would be indecipherable nothing since everything takes place in the shadows. Rather then making the Ripper a man shaped blob of darkness, they lightened the whole affair and let you appreciate the action on screen.

Bullshit. Beyond the fact that BtAS had effective Mignola-esque spotted blacks 20 years ago, we've had 2 animated Hellboy films and a feature-length Disney movie that all adapt Mignola better than this

Then there's the obvious answer - the animation style is decided by Warner Brothers. Seeing as how this reveal is at the end of the Batman & Harley Quinn film -  a film banking on TAS nostalgia - it's not surprising that Gotham by Gaslight is sporting a similar style.

 

Any way you slice it, it's being heavily hinted at this is the trial run of Elseworld style animated movies. The movie could be utter garbage and I'll still pick it up simply in the hopes of one day getting an adaptation of Red Son.

They've been pushing this "house style" on every movie these last few years, except when Bruce Timm feels like something different. There's nothing any of these movies have to "prove" or "justify".

Gotham by Gaslight is out and, overall, it was pretty good. All the VAs worked well, its good to have Bruce Greenwood back is he -lays a really good Bruce/Bats. Yes the art style isn’t the comic, but that doesn’t bother me since i’ve never read it other than the wiki synopsis. Nice Steampunk gadgets and good, detectivey Bruce.

I look forward to Batman Ninja. Now more than ever.

Not having read the comic, I wasn't too attached to any pre-concieved notion of what the art should look like.So I was quite fine with this. But knowing some of the qualms I had with some of the Year One stuff, I understand the sentiment. As far as the movie itself goes...

Spoiler


Over all, I enjoyed it. It's certainly better than the past couple Bruce Timm outings. I also liked that Batman actually had to play the part of detective.

Definetly looking forward to Batman Ninja. And thanks to the sneak peek at Suicide Squade, it...could be fun.

Wait, I remember that mentor part! Didn't realize it was Sherlock Holmes, haha.

Loved the reveal because, yeah, that was cool! Ripper was totally beating up this almost new Batman. Bruce was all bloodied each time cuz the Ripper was great.

The whip was a good show. Actually, was she baiting him? I wasn't sure, especially when she snapped at Bruce.

Loved the Robins. Glad there wasn't a Damian and it was only Dickie, Jason and Timmy.

The ending was kinda flat. I needed more of a next day thing.

Hugo Strange was pretty cool too. Sorry about Ivy but, following the pattern, the other girl killed should have been another female villain. Harley, Magpie, um, Talia?

I like to think she was a Harley nod.

Actually. Wasn’t it refreshing to have a Batman story that doesn’t revolve around, feature, cameo, or otherwise reference The Joker?
