It’s not an April Fool’s joke, the month of April is here and that means the Good Brothers are on to another month of reviews, this time returning to Batman: The Animated Series picking up where they last left off with the production order and the episode “The Man Who Killed Batman.” Liam and Cal discuss this episode that usually ranks high on most people’s lists of top BTAS episodes of all time. Hear them discuss a plot out of the zany, dark-humored mind of Paul Dini with directing and partial storyboards by Bruce Timm that has almost no Batman screen time, another legendary voice performance by Mark Hamill that includes his favorite monologue of the series, and a scene that made one of the hosts jump out of their seat with excitement. Plus an organ-heavy soundtrack from Shirley Walker and a great story about Arleen Sorkin’s kazoo performance! All of this, a preview of next week’s episode, and an update on the fan poll for inducting an episode into the Top Picks section on this week’s all-new DCAU Review!
