Ep. 147 – Batman Beyond – Sneak Peek

As we continue with our month of Batman Beyond reviews, we come to an oft-forgotten episode titled “Armory” which asks the age-old question, “What would you do to keep your lavish lifestyle intact, after losing your job due to corporate downsizing?” Okay, so maybe that’s not that much of an age-old question, but never fear because the Good Brothers are here to answer it anyway! Hear Cal and Liam discuss a plot complete with outdated technology and gender roles, what would make the average person go from zero to treason in no time, featuring a main-baddie that doesn’t talk which allows for action and music to be brought to the forefront. Plus the hosts list the voice cast, making an argument for a surprising addition to the DCAU Mt. Rushmore of voice-actors, and discuss #MyWarMachine(?!?) making his voice heard as Armory. All of this, more talk about Terry forgetting the suit’s invisibility, and much more on this week’s all-new DCAU Review!
