Brace yourselves for this one, as you get not one but TWO hours of glorious listening material when The Wonder Siblings reunite this week for The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast's 35th episode. So, do you like video games? Do you know the difference between Link and Zelda? Do you like DC TV shows? JRR Tolkien, archers and musicals? Well, I hope so because Paul and Lisa shoot the poo for two hours about all this and more. Geekery and laughs are in abundance this week, so get in your comfy zone and get ready to be taken on a podcast "fantasy" 60 frames per second! And also, if you think Lisa should sit down and watch the B-movie "Killer Klowns From Outer Space", go to the Facebook page for The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast and leave a comment somewhere on the page saying she should. She needs to see this movie, but a little help from you all is needed to convince her to watch this film and let it change her life. Haha! Take care everyone, and enjoy the show.
Outro Track: "Super Friend" sung by Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist, music by Blake Neely; from the recording "The Flash/Supergirl Crossover Episode - Duet". The soundtrack is available through iTunes and Watertower Records.
Thank you for listening to this week's show.

My name is Danny Rand. For 15 years I've been away from home, and considered dead. Now I'm back to gain back my birthright and...save my company? Wait, doesn't this sound a bit familiar? Well, this week's episode will touch up on the similarities and differences between Marvel's Iron Fist and other superhero properties in a *no spoilers* review of the latest Netflix Marvel series. Also this week, a quick glimpse into what will be coming in the near future for the podcast, and a definition of what I mean when I address the podcast as "we". So thank you in advance for taking some time to listen to this new episode in the catalogue of entries for The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast.
Outro track: "Fever" by The Cramps; from the 1980 album "Songs the Lord Taught Us".

This week it's almost all "telly talk", and it's almost all retro! Of course, the CW shows have to have their moment in the spotlight, but after that we take a time travelling trip back to 1988 to visit an old burnt buddy...the Freddy Kruegz! Back in the year of '88, Lorimar Distribution and New Line Cinema teamed up to give the fans of Freddy their very own horror anthology hosted by the Dream Master himself, and it was a campy fun ride. Puns, and bad acting and cheers and jeers all around, Freddy's Nightmares would grace TV screens for two full seasons (44 episodes). In today's episode of The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast, Paul gives some insight on the show, and the pilot episode titled "No More Mr. Nice Guy". And to wrap the show up today, a small Tune Time segment highlighting an independent musical act of present day, with a retro touch; VHS Glitch. So get ready to go for a wondrous journey back in time for an 80s kind of Bats, Bows n' Books episode...
Outro Track: "Until the Last Drop of Blood" by VHS Glitch; from the 2015 release "Halloween Strangers". https://vhsglitch.bandcamp.com/
The background music during the Freddy's Nightmares portion of the episode is from the 1990 original NES game "A Nightmare on Elm Street" developed by Rare and distributed by LJN.
I hope you enjoy this week's episode. And if you know someone who would be interested in hearing this episode, please feel free to share it with them. It would mean the world to me. Thank you for all your support and love. May your week be a bloody awesome one.
