Episode 41: It’s Gonna Be a Long Summer

May 29, 2017

The Wonder Siblings (Paul and Lisa) reunite for this episode as they recap and review last week's season finales for the CW DC shows Supergirl, The Flash and Arrow.  They also give small predictions and wishes for what they'd like to see next season.  Hopefully you'll like this week's episode as much as they "LIKE IT!" (you'll get the reference when you listen to the show).

Outro Track: "Arrow" by Candlebox; taken from the 1994 unofficial live release of "Keepers of the Flame".

Episode 40: Alien Covenant Review

May 24, 2017

Just a small episode with one small purpose: to review the new Alien: Covenant film with very mild spoilers.  Paul saw the film this past Monday.  Did he like it?  Did he hate it?  Does it live up to what he wanted in an Alien film?  Well, you'll just have to listen to find out.  And while he doesn't spoil any of the main plots or story, there is a few moments he does discuss so, listen with discretion.  Oh, and he's a bit happy about it being the day of the Arrow fifth season finale, so there's a bit of that in the episode as well.  Hope you enjoy this week's episode.

Outro Track: "Familus Horriblus" by Pop Will Eat Itself; from the 1994 album "Dos Dedos Mis Amigos".

Background music that can be heard throughout the episode comes from the "Alien: Covenant" Original Soundtrack Score, as composed by Jed Kurzel.

Episode 39: Injustice 2

May 18, 2017

This week Injustice 2 was released to the masses, and The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast unleashes its' review upon you, the listener.  In two days, Paul ate this game up alive, and now he is spitting it all back up to tell you his views on the world of Injustice.  Without spoiling any important details from the story, he opens up to the listening audience about how he felt about this new adventure in the DC Comics Universe.  You'll learn the names of the brains behind the game, the music and the voices.  And in closing, a moment to say goodbye to a man the world lost the morning of this recording, Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave, Temple of the Dog).

Outro Track: "Blow Up the Outside World" by Soundgarden; from the 1996 album "Down on the Upside".

Music that can be heard throughout the Injustice 2 review is from the soundtrack for the game, composed by various artists; from WaterTower Records.

Episode 38: Galactic Guardians (A Non-Spoilery Review of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2)

May 8, 2017

Those crazy galactic guardians from the Marvel universe returned to the theaters last Friday, and this week I'm here to give you a review of the box office hit, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.  To be fair to all those who've not seen the film yet, this episode contains no spoilers.  However, some of what you will hear might persuade you to get off your butt and go see this movie, if you haven't already.  Along with some quick thoughts on last week's episode of The Flash, and thoughts on 2017's Ghost in the Shell live action film, the primary focus of this week's episode is the misfit crew featuring Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Baby Groot and everyone they bring along for the ride.  Does the film measure up to the original?  Is it true James Gunn was in a Toxic Avenger film?  How good was Kurt Russell?  All these questions are answered, so strap on your seatbelts and let's take a ride into the cosmos with The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast.

Outro Track: "Pass The Mic" by the Beastie Boys; live from Amsterdam 2004

Multiple tracks from the "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2" original musical score by Tyler Bates can be heard during the review of the film.

Episode 37: The Knight is Darker Before the Dawn

May 2, 2017

Get ready to take a deep dive into the world of Batman: Arkham Knight.  This week's episode Paul revisits the dark city of Gotham and gives his full review on the final game in the Arkham series released by Rocksteady Games in 2015 (not including the recently released Batman Arkham VR).  It's an in depth look at the Next Gen game that was released for the console and PC platforms, and was met with a bit of a mixed reception.  This podcast looks primarily at the Xbox One version, but there is some focus on the PC fiasco as well.  So, pull down your cowls and tighten your capes, as it's time to take a final blow in the almighty world of Gotham City on this week's episode of The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast.

Outtro track: "Psycho Bitches Outta Hell" by The Horrorpops; from their 2004 release "Hell Yeah!".

Background music for this episode includes multiple tracks from the double volume WaterTower Music soundtrack for "Batman:" Arkham Knight"; recorded by Nick Arundel and David Buckley.
