An Egg Grows in Gotham.

I had a blast being part of it, so thanks for inviting me, Ben!

I was on my Kindle as I had worked earlier in the day on my PC via Skype. So I wanted to get out of my work environment. I found out later on my Kindle was doing updates or something and somehow my mic kept getting muted. I'm not always that quiet. ;)

As my post in the recent Third Season thread indicates, I'm actually a fan of the absurdist side of the show, so I was laughing throughout most of the episodes today.

I was probably the only one, but I loved the banker getting a ticket for jaywalking.

That's Jonathan Hole, who appeared frequently in one of my other favorite shows, Green Acres. He's always hilarious and is one of my favorite character actors. I thought he was funny in today's episode; then again I think Nora Clavicle is hysterical, so I'd have been outvoted. ;)

I also enjoyed talking Sunset Strip with Scott, which we should do again sometime, or maybe in the non-Batman section. I've been reading a blog of sorts by Stevie Rachelle, who was in the band Tuff and signed to Atlantic, just as grunge hit. Definitely NSFW but a fun time to look back on.

I know i'm beginning to sound like a "Holy broken record", but last night's VBC was another genuinely really enjoyable one. A big thanks as ever to all of you who have shown up to any and all of the these because you guys and gals really do make Video Bat-Chat what it is.

It's wild *flicks eyebrow* to think that it's already been 15 weeks since we brought VBC back, they've been real weekly highlight for me during this period of lockdown and I can only hope have provided a few hours of precious distraction/enjoyment for others too.

Already looking forward to doing it all over again next week!

Long live, VBC! :D

Which episodes did you watch?
A lost season 3 arc:

The Carpet King's Shag-Adelic Crimes/The King Gets Crowned, Baby
'I thought Siren was perfect for Joan.'--Stanley Ralph Ross, writer of 'The Wail of the Siren'

My hobbies include gazing at the Siren and doing her bidding, evil or otherwise.

'She had a devastating, hypnotic effect on all the men.'--A schoolmate describing Joan Collins at age 17
