Batman Returns • Rebroadcast


New content returns next week! Until then, we’re kicking off the season with a rebroadcast of our episode on that classic Christmas movie — Batman Returns!

Can a Tim Burton movie be TOO Tim Burton? Would Ashley Coffin have discovered blue eyeshadow if it weren’t for this Catwoman? And why, oh why, does Bruce think you should bring up your ex on a first date? Paul and Ashley join me to discuss these questions, and ask, “Is this our Batman?” as we talk about Batman Returns!

Member note: no bonus content on this episode, but we will be returning with bonus content starting next week!

We’ve started the conversation. Now we want to hear from you!
