    So I'd watch Bourne Legacy first and keep DKR as a palette cleanser if need be.

    I wouldn't recommend it: It's not got a fun enough tone for how incredibly, unrelentingly silly almost every concept involved in it is, so the whole thing is just a jarringly surreal train wreck that persists in trying to get you to consider it completely serious and largely realistic.

    Surely it can't be any worse than the second film, which required you to ignore that everyone except the Joker, Batman, Lucius and Alfred were complete morons? And where the Joker kept saying the most idiotic and blatantly false things?

    The fact that it was so goofy and kept up a serious tone was something I liked a lot about Dark Knight Rises. *shrug*

    I kinda took that part as deliberate. He's pretending to be chaos incarnate so people don't notice he's actually an absurdly meticulous planner.

    ...It wasn't quite as bad because most of the absurdity revolved around a single character for most of the run time, though pretty much everything after Two Face shows up is about as bad as the third film.

    Pretty much the only thing holding the second film together is the acting, actually.

    I can't work out what's the worst part of being a DCU prison guard: Putting up with the constant jokes from friends, family members and the media about how you can never keep anyone in more than a week... Or cleaning up the mess after the Spectre pops in once or twice per year.

    I am amused that Hasta made a Zach Bell thread, just to get me to read it.

    Well played, Hasta.

    That wasn't my sole motivation.

    It was a part of it but I recently was flicking through the series and was reminded how rad it was.

    Ergo, respect thread! Which people should totally check out!

    Does anyone want to live in a parallel universe where Andrew Hussie traveled back in time, killed William Shakespeare and impersonated him in order to found all English literature with flowery 16th century play adaptations of Homestuck and Problem Sleuth?

    Ah, come on, the immense societal train wreck of trying to shoehorn 21st century internet culture, pop culture and a story about time traveling alternate universe aliens and gods fleeing a pool table themed demon into a time when "literature" wasn't even really a thing yet would be glorious to observe from a safe distance. :P

    So apparently Ash and Giovanni actually meet each others in an episode of Best Wishes.

    I will be back. There is something I have to watch.

    Young adult Sweetie Belle as a sort of Harry Dresden/Dr Strange/John Constantine figure? This picture is giving me a strong urge to write fanfiction, is that weird?

    Weirder than I normally am, I mean.
