Podicus Wrecs #57 – Batman The Animated Series

In this week’s episode, Anthony and I are looking back on our favorite episodes of Batman: The Animated Series, in celebration of its 25th Anniversary.


Terrible, but effective disguises

The following screenshot is from the Batman: The Animated Series episode “Vendetta.”  Killer Croc is trying to frame Det. Harvey Bullock for a couple of disappearances/murders. This is how he enters GCPD, to fool the officer on duty.

Batman TAS Vendetta Killer Croc disguise as Bullock

Looks just like Harvey Bullock, right?

Spot on, right?  There’s no way anyone would suspect that that person wasn’t Bullock.  Sure, the face is weirdly hidden, but look at the shirt.  Croc also has the hat, the jacket, and the correct tie.  It’s foolproof.  Actually, I am a little curious as to how Croc came across these items of clothing.  Did he walk into a clothing store in a different disguise and purchase these clothes?  I wouldn’t think he stole them from somewhere.  Wouldn’t want to raise suspicions.  So many questions, so few answers.

Podicus Wrecks #51 – The Start of Young Justice

In this week’s episode, we’re discussing the early days of Peter David’s and Todd Nauck’s Young Justice series.  Anthony had never read any of it, so we sat him down and forced him to.  Well, not forced him to.  More like gave him the opportunity to experience the greatness that is Young Justice.  This episode covers the Book One collection that DC released back in April, Young Justice #1-7, plus some tie-ins.  Also, Casey is back with a minute recap of the latest Game of Thrones episode, “Spoils of War.”

Podicus Wrecks #50 – On the Path of the Beam part 7 – The Dark Tower

In this momentous 50th episode, we have finally reached the end of journey through Stephen King’s epic tale, and have arrived at The Dark Tower.  The merry ka tet was scattered across time the last time we saw them.  Hear how, or even if, they all reunite.  Does Roland actually make it to the top of the Dark Tower?  Will anyone be beside him if he does?  Find out inside.  Also, Casey has another minute recap of this past week’s episode of Game of Thrones, “The Queen’s Justice.”  Also, since this is the 50th episode, I take a moment to thank those who help make this podcast possible.
