Lisa and John discuss their two favorite and most anticipated entertainment experiences of the year. WARNING: This podcast contains spoilers for The Dark Knight. Discretion is advised.

00:01:25 - John and Lisa give their thoughts on Joss Whedon's web series, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and they talk about what this could mean for the future of online entertainment.
00:18:50 - Lisa brings up the merits of novelists building an audience by providing their works online for free in the audio podcast format. She cites the superhero series, Playing For Keeps as being one example of success, similar in tone to Dr. Horrible.
00:24:22 - John and Lisa share their experience of seeing The Dark Knight on the big screen, with a packed crowd.
00:39:50 - Lisa expresses her disappointment in Maggie Gyllenhaal's performance, which leads back to a discussion about Katie Holmes playing the same role in Batman Begins.
00:46:11 - They both long for the days of ushers in movie theaters, which transfers over into talk about how common courtesy and etiquette are almost nonexistent these days. The ratings system and taking young children to inappropriate movies is also discussed.
01:07:55 - John mentions his optimism and curiosity with Terminator: Salvation, after having seen the Teaser.
01:16:50 - They're both amused by the Trailer for the new CGI film Bolt, especially a certain thrill seeking Hamster. "Let it begin!"
01:19:16 - There's a film about vampires coming out called Twilight. Not interested. We'll stick with Buffy & Angel, thank you very much.
01:21:53 - Ridley Scott made a movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe. It's called Body Of Lies. That's pretty much all the Trailer had to say.
01:25:52 - Apparently, the United States government doesn't like it when you talk smack about Ridley Scott's latest film, because they sent a very loud, intrusive helicopter after us.
01:26:47 - The show comes to a close with talk about the Teaser for Watchmen and the works of comic book author, Alan Moore.
01:33:50 - Promo for the Astral Audio Experience.

1) Battlestar Galactica has produced webisodes between seasons. Basically you can think of it as one episode divided into small chunks. I believe there were disputes about how much the writers were going to be paid for the first set of webisodes which had a lot to do for the reasons why there was a writer\\\'s strike.

2) So ignoring Dark Knight, what superhero movies do you watch again? Have you seen Gotham Knight yet?

3) You\\\'ve obviously seen a lot of movie musicals just curious to know if you\\\'ve seen a live show.
