Gotham Season 5

The 42cast Episode 180: Batman Begins Again

Although DC has had many television series in the last few years, Gotham was one of the strangest and most surprising. Lasting for five-years on the Fox network, the series showcased a Gotham city before Bruce Wayne became Batman. Despite some very unusual takes on some of the mainstays and

The Batman

The 42cast Episode 151: Batter Up

The Batman is a movie that courted controversy from the beginning. From the troubled origins of the film as a showcase of Ben Affleck a the dark knight to the casting of Robert Pattinson as the titular character, fans had many strong and vocal opinions of how the film would

Batwoman Season Two

The 42cast Episode 126: Alice in Chains

Major changes are afoot as we discuss season two of Batwoman. The CW made a controversial move this year by not only replacing the actress who played Batwoman, but changing the identity of the person who wears the cowl to a person-of-color. We discuss the change and whether or not


The 42cast Episode 102: Bat Out

The 42cast Episode 24: Batman Year Negative Nine

The 42cast Episode 6: Cranked up to Fifteen

This week Michael and Mike join the cast to talk about the first ten episodes of the third season of Gotham. It’s a wild wide as we discuss how the show routinely “cranks it up to fifteen”, and we discuss how we came to like Barbara Kean, the merits and
