Are you kidding me...?
22 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

I never thought I'd critique a TV show, but... having a bunch of paperback quacks, a forensic consultant and a rabbi for crying out loud (author of 'Wisdom of the Batcave' - I kid you not - and the forthcoming 'Popeye; the Spinoza of Spinach') all parading their 2-bit pseudo-psycho-evaluation, while doing their best to circumvent that irksome little fact that we're talking about a friggin' 1939 comic book superhero, resurrected every so often as a movie character for nothing more than Hollywood payola (aarrgghhh!!)..

So yeah, it had me seething at the hifalutin posturing, the psycho-babble ranting and the conceited effort to pass this off as something more than an Access Hollywood reject.

Shame on the History Channel for hosting such an asinine, superfluous, steaming pile of.. bio-spoofing-mockumentary. Clearly a sign of the end of times.

Nice imagery tho'...
