Review: "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" and the Blu-ray - Seasons 1 and 2

Batman the Brave and the Bold Menace of the Madniks!

I’ve read a lot of reviews of Batman: The Brave and the Bold by writers (including here) who feel the need to bend over backwards explaining how they can like the show even though it’s not 100% serious in the way that Batman: The Animated Series or Beware the Batman are. I think the fact […]

Conan O’Brien had a treat for fans of FX’s absurd spy toon Archer. Instead of a boring couch segment, the lanky redhead teamed up with Archer to take on some Russian mobsters.
