watched the Dark Knight Returns part 1 & 2.  Thought it was good animation and liked the different adaptations of the characters. Joker seems more "in love" with Batman than in other installments. Which is weird but makes sense why he is obsessed with Batman.

This particular story arc was done in the 90's by the guy responsible for Sin City. It pissed off a lot of older Batman fans because it was far more violent and Batman was much more aggressive.

During the original Batman Animated Series there was an episode which told short versions of alternate universe Batman's though the eyes of 3 different kids. One of those kids was the Robin featured in this version of Batman who told a good portion of the Mutant story arc in part 1.

It really blows me away that they did this. I always thought the rendition they did in Batman TAS was mostly poking fun at how wildly different each version of Batman is. But i always liked the Frank Miller version. The Dark Knight Rises does an excellent job of capturing the art style and story of the comics.

I also like that it's very clearly 1990's art with a 2010's mentality. It retains the cleanness of the animated series with the style of the Frank Miller comics. Even though some of the art and design feels corny to me. It would be worse if they did it differently. Even muscle man Gordan just seems to make sense.

I'm not 100% on Jeffery Dahmer style Joker. But it's a minor character trait. It's just too bad that the extra character they gave him comes off as a perverted rather then crazy. The Joker is still in there but he's got some pent up sexual aggression going on in his speeches.

I do love that we now have a Batman cartoon for every age group. We have advanced as a society.

I watched the entire Sons of Anarchy series last month. That show is fucking awesome. Wasn't sure if I would like it but I was hooked after about 3 or 4 episodes. It has that whole gangster/crime drama thing going for it like the Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire and that is totally my cup of tea. Can't recommend the show enough.

Also watched the first season of House of Cards on Netflix. Its a Netflix original series starring Kevin Spacey. It's all about corruption and the wheeling and dealings that go on in government. Its not an amazing show but it is pretty good and its free to watch on Netflix.

Been literally catching up the last 2 weeks watching the show Walking Dead on Netflix. Love Netflix on my 360.

Haven't seen one single episode since 2 Sundays ago, and now I'm hooked. Been catching up ever since, to where they are at now.

Yea yea yea. I know.....welcome to 2 years ago. Fuck you.

Love Netflix on my tv.. Because fuck the 360. In all reality though, I don't like how the app on my tv is laid out compared to the 360, but it is nice to not run two machines to use one app. It reminds me of the same it's set up on the PS3.

If you caught up in two weeks, that's pretty quick, Mags. I am LOVING this season, holy shit. I will admit that season two was a bit slow-going, and I know it bored a ton of people away, but this season picked up steam from the first episode and hasn't slowed down since. Robert Kirkman did say that this season would be like that, though. No one was safe from getting killed off, not even Rick.

I watched a few episodes of Sons Of Anarchy when my gf's parents were in town back in December. Her dad, being an old biker, is into it a lot and got himself caught up. It got me hooked into it, but I'm already watching like, three different tv series' on there as it is, so I'm waiting to finish one out before I start another.

Yea I did catch up quick. It was kinda slow going up near the end of season 2 but that's the problem for me.

I'm pissed off because for some reason, Netflix doesn't have any of the season 3 at all. My cable provider is only showing season 3 from 6-9. So I'm basicly stuck from when they had to camp the 1st night away from the farm, to where they are in the prison.

So of course I know Ricks wife is dead, and that old dude lost a foot but, I have no idea how the fuck that happened. I have to wait until someone loosens up on Netflix or cable to get the rest of that.

It's like reading the 5th book in a 6 book series, and you missed #4.

Torrent that shit dumbass. You missed the best part of this season. Episodes 1-4 of season 3 were the best in my opinion.

Yeah, they showed those episodes before Xmas.  You can probably find them somewhere easily, or keep an eye on AMC.  They tend to have reruns.  Like, if you had been watching before it started back up, they had an entire marathon of Season 3 up to the new episode.

Dude I tried telling you guys to watch that show a while ago. Glad you finally watched it. It's a great fucking show. Can't wait for the next and final (I think) season in September!

Anyone notice the similarities between The Walking Dead and Dragon Ball Z?

Instead of powering up before a battle. They emotionally stew before a fight.

The characters who only exist to fill dialogue space die randomly while characters with actual things to do are practically invincible until their plot plays out.

You can almost hear the shows budget getting sucked up every time a fight or zombie attack occurs.

The lead villains are huge pieces of shit with lifelines directly connected to the hour long format. No one gets defeated mid episode unless it's a character built for dying or losing.

I'm not comparing the actual writing. It's just the structure that cracks me up. If you watch The Walking Dead with a timer on the screen it's almost like radar for character deaths.

The AMC website usually carries the current episodes, and if not, you can always Torrent them like Xizor said. A quick recap: Season three starts about six months after season two ended. The group stayed on the run throughout the winter, while Andrea became deathly ill, being cared for by Michonne. Rick's crew eventually came across the prison, and take it over. Andrea and Michonne are found and brought to Woodbury, a small isolated town ran by a nutcase called the Governor. Shit goes south, and now there's a war between the two.
