This discussion is driven by (and contains spoilers for) the following DC animated films: Son of Batman, Batman vs. Robin, Batman: Bad Blood, Justice League vs. Teen Titans, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, and Justice League Dark: Apokolips War.    Follow us on Twitter: @FanboyandHater    Email us: thefanboyandthehater@gmail.com    Other ways to listen: http://bit.ly/fanboyandhater

Mike and Jim discuss South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, the 1999 animated film based on the Comedy Central animated television series South Park, including how Jim forgot it's a musical, if it's still as funny 20 years later, how it's a self-parody of the controversy circling the television show concerning censorship and parenting, and how comedy without boundaries provokes discussion about taboo topics.  While Jim thinks it's m'kay, it's one of Mike's favorite movies and he will often break into song during this episode. You have been warned, uncle f*cker! (Oh, yeah, there's lots of profanity in this episode too).    Follow us on Twitter: @FanboyandHater    Email us: thefanboyandthehater@gmail.com    Other ways to listen: http://bit.ly/fanboyandhater   
In Part 3 of their epic three-part series about the third movie in the third Star Wars trilogy, Fanboy Knight Mike and Darth Hater Jim conclude their discussion and debate about The Rise of Skywalker.  In Part 1 (fanboyandhater.podbean.com/e/star-wars-the-rise-of-skywalker-part-1-of-3/), they focused on things Jim found good about the movie, including some cinematography and fan service, as well as how neither one of them see the movie as retconning The Last Jedi.   In Part 2 (fanboyandhater.podbean.com/e/star-wars-the-rise-of-skywalker-part-2-of-3/), they focused on things Jim thinks are bad about the movie, including its safe and simple plot, aimless action, excessive exposition, the MacGuffin Scavenger Hunt (Sith Dagger and Sith Wayfinders), and some of its other plot problems.   In this episode, they conclude the series by discussing and debating its fake feels, the Bendemption, Force-d resonance, and its hyperbolic and anti-climatic conclusion, as well as deliver their metaphorical ratings and final thoughts. So, obviously, there will be lots of spoilers!    Follow us on Twitter: @FanboyandHater    Email us: thefanboyandthehater@gmail.com    Other ways to listen: http://bit.ly/fanboyandhater    Check out all of our Star Wars episodes: http://bit.ly/FBATH_StarWars

Mike and Jim discuss and debate two things that come up often on this podcast: Spoilers and Rewatchability. They have very different takes on spoilers, but somewhat similar views regarding rewatchability. The discussion includes what they find the most (and least) rewatchable, and reveals the different perspectives they take while watching movies and television shows, explaining why they argue so much.     Follow us on Twitter: @FanboyandHater     Email us: thefanboyandthehater@gmail.com     Other ways to listen: http://bit.ly/fanboyandhater  
Jim solo-hosts this mini-episode about swearing on television, specifically the alternative swear words created to avoid government censors and profanity filters, asking if we all know what is really being said then what is the f**king point? (This episode of the Fanboy and the Hater occasionally uses strong language some may find offensive. Listener discretion is advised.)    Follow us on Twitter: @FanboyandHater   Email us: thefanboyandthehater@gmail.com   Other ways to listen: http://bit.ly/fanboyandhater  
Holy Mother Forking Shirt Balls! Welcome to The Spoiler Place, where Mike and Jim take a spoiler-filled, character-driven journey through one of their favorite television shows of all time: The Good Place. This Peabody and Hugo award-winning comedy series, created by Michael Schur and starring Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, D'Arcy Carden, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, and Manny Jacinto, inspires a lot of philosophical tangents during this episode about what it means to be a good person, why you should be a good person and, if you're not, how you can become a better person.    Follow us on Twitter: @FanboyandHater   Email us: thefanboyandthehater@gmail.com   Other ways to listen: http://bit.ly/fanboyandhater  
Mike and Jim discuss and debate (almost entirely avoiding spoilers) the 2020 DC film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). They agree it's not a bad movie. Mike thinks it's borderline good. Jim thinks it's closer to just okay, but it does make him want to read more Harley Quinn and Birds of Prey comic books.     Follow us on Twitter: @FanboyandHater   Email us: thefanboyandthehater@gmail.com   Other ways to listen: http://bit.ly/fanboyandhater  
Mike and Jim discuss Crisis on Infinite Earths, the 2019-2020 CW/DC Arrowverse television series crossover event spanning episodes of Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow, during which Mike constantly mispronounces Stephen Amell's name and overreacts as Jim constantly spoils all things Arrowverse. Jim also spoils the comic book series of the same name that the crossover story is, in part, based on, but since those comics were published 35 years ago, he doesn't feel guilty about it.    Follow us on Twitter: @FanboyandHater   Email us: thefanboyandthehater@gmail.com   Other ways to listen: http://bit.ly/fanboyandhater   Check out all of our Super Hero episodes: http://bit.ly/FBATH_SuperHeroes
