Episode 56: WTF Arrow?

00:0000:00

The title should say everything.  I don't normally do this kind of thing, but after last night's episode of Arrow (originally aired March 1st, 2018) there needed to be a reaction episode for the podcast.  An early warning, this will not be pretty.  The rage is real, and it's present on this early edition of The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast.  So, if you think you can handle it, prepare to hear Paul get extremely passionate and angry over the disappointment that was the Arrow Season Six episode, "Collision Course".  What the f*** Arrow?

Background music: "Cannibal Holocaust" Opening Theme Music by Riz Ortolani

Outro Track: "Something For The Pain (Apoptygma Bezerk Remix)" by Zeromancer

This week, Paul returns to The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast with a slobberknocker of an episode.  As promised a while back, he would take two of the worst DC properties, and compare them painstakingly to determine which was worse.  The films in question?  Catwoman from 2004 vs. Batman & Robin from 1997.  How much pain and torture do you think your host had to endure to get through these two abominations?  Find out on this week's episode in a battle royale known as "The Cat vs The Bat".  Also this week, Paul explores his midseason thoughts towards the other part of the Bats and the Bows; Arrow.  How does Paul feel about this season?  What does he love?  What bothers him about Arrow?  It's all here.  So get some popcorn, and maybe a barf bag as this week, The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast brings all sorts of ranting and raving to the forefront in the episode known as Episode 55: The Cat, The Bat and The Arrow.

Some background music featured is from Blake Neely's 2013 score for the first season of Arrow.

Outro track: "The End is the Beginning is the End" by the Smashing Pumpkins, Live from the Eurockennees Festival in 1997.

It's a short episode this week, as our lovable host has a bit of a cold and not much of a voice.  That said, this week Paul spends a bit of time recollecting the music of the Cranberries and its effect on his teenage years in the wake of the news that Dolores O'Riordan has passed away at the age of 46.  Paul also talks briefly about a few new shows coming to streaming services before diving into space with the Agents of SHIELD.  Also, a small preview of what's to come next week on The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast.

Background music: "An Unlikely Hero: A Dark Synth/Cyberpunk Mix" from Confused Bi-Product of a Misinformed Culture (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APe7mtNxZew&t)

Outro Track: "When You're Gone (2017 Acoustic Version)" by the Cranberries, from their 2017 release "Something Else"

This week The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast forgets all about the superhero multiverse, and turns away from the horror genre, to open the door to another cookie in the jar; anime. This week Paul sings the high praises of two of the all time greatest juggernauts in the cyberpunk world of anime, 1988's "Akira" and 1995's "Ghost in the Shell".  It's a love affair, mainly Paul and his anime films.  So grab a java and get comfortable as The Bats, Bows n' Books heads off into the future landscapes of two classic tales from the land of Japan.

Outro Track: "Empty Streets" by Scandroid; from the 2016 self-titled release

Background music that can be heard throughout the episode originates from both the Akira Original Soundtrack and the Ghost in the Shell Original Soundtrack.

It's a new year, but we're not done with 2017 just yet.  On this episode, Paul will run through not one, but two, Top Ten lists of his favorites of 2017.  The first Top Ten will be a countdown of his favorite TV programs of 2017, and then a Top Ten list of his favorite films of 2017 will follow.  There's also a special clip that has been brought to this week's show; a clip of two critics battling over a Star Wars film from the early 80s.  I'm sure you'll find that the argument sounds awfully similar to battles being fought on the Internet this very day.

Outro track: the '89 Batman theme, as done by Artificial Fear.

Background music: "Dystopia" by Goldpile (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQ8moLn3e-k)
