Unfortunately, nothing has piqued my interest for this weekend, so I am left with soccer games and television and—the ultimate horror—actually having to entertain my children. Can you imagine?
However, I was poking around online and came across the preview for Season 4 of The Batman, which first aired this summer at the San Diego Comic Convention. I’ll confess: I’ve never been a big Batman fan. But I watched the clip and I have to say, I have high hopes.
See for yourself:
Batman’s new sidekick looks very familiar, doesn’t he? Is it possible that The Batman could fill the hole in my heart left from the cancellation of Teen Titans? Maybe? (Although, it did freak me out a little bit when Robin started talking and didn’t sound like, you know, Robin from TT. I’m a creature of habit.)
Season 4 debuts on the Kids’ WB on Saturday, September 23rd, at 11:30. The first episode of the new season is called “A Matter of Family.” (See the Kids’ WB site or Batman on Film for more information about the show.)
From my perspective, they had me the minute I read that Mitch Pileggi is the voice of Commissioner Gordon. I’ve been trying to find a way to get a steady fix of Pileggi ever since The X-Files ended. All the better if I can enjoy him during something my kids will want to watch!
Anyway, the addition of Robin may be just enough to get us on board. I look forward to the premiere later this month.
In the meantime, enjoy the weekend!
