The Life and Times of Donald F. Simmons

Spring forward...

For maybe the first time ever, the time change caught me completely by surprise this year. I got up at 10 AM (so I thought) Sunday morning to watch The Batman and Megas-XLR on Teletoon, and what did I get? The awful new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! There is no justice in the world.

It didn't help at the previous night I had gone to see Downfall, the German movie about the last days in Hitler's bunker. It's a great movie, but I went to the 10:40 PM showing without knowing that it was a THREE HOUR MOVIE! Once Hitler (Bruno Getz, of Wings of Desire) shot himself, I figured we'd be out of there shortly, but no, there was another 40 minutes while we wrapped up everyone else. It's tough to appreciate good film-making when you're working on keeping your eyes open.

Damn you, Nazis! Kick ze bucket sos vee all return home can!

I tried to watch The Batman, but it just felt wrong to hear Batman voiced by someone other than Kevin Conroy.

I look at it as being the adventures of the young Bruce Wayne, so it doesn't bother me too much.

Maybe I should give it a second chance. I made the mistake of starting with the Bane episode, which compared poorly with the Batman:TAS Bane episode.

That was easily one of the worst episodes of the new Batman.
