  • Season Five is beginning to pick up steam with parodies of Superman, "Tron," and the "Batman" graphic novel, "The Killing Joke!" :idea:

    After four super seasons of "Robot Chicken," I was beginning to worry that Seth Green and his team of writers were beginning to lose their mojo. Don't get me wrong, the sketches are still funny, but they just seemed to be lacking the air of coolness that has surrounded the earlier sketches that has already been presented to us. But "Robot Chicken" has shown me that it still has plenty of trump cards hidden up their sleeves with superb parodies! :D Since Superman is immune to most of the harm most humans can give him, Johnathan Kent has to get pretty creative about threatening to punish Clark Kent. As far as Diablo Cody's eulogy goes, I don't blame her for coming back to life. If I had been in HER position, I would've done ANYTHING to stop her eulogizer from talking because MAN! She has GOT to be the most annoying person on Earth (except for Justin Bieber but he is not even worth the effort to spit on him!) :roll: I've always wanted to see how the "Robot Chicken" nerd would do inside the world of "Tron." Naturally, he was an ace playing the computer game, and it was very cool to see the cult 1982 movie get the respect that it really deserves! 8) Finally, Mark Hamill does what Mark Hamill does best that is in no WAY related to anything "Star Wars," and that is play Batman's long time arch-nemesis, The Joker! And in The Joker's case, he finds out the hard way that sometimes, a joke (especially "The Killing Joke") can go TOO far, as he finally gets the death penalty courtesy of Commissioner Gordon; proving you can NOT both force to make Mr. Gordon watch helplessly as the Joker tortures Barbara Gordon and think that neither of them would take it personally! :!: This was a very great episode, and I hope that season five will give me plenty more episodes just like this one, both serious AND funny! :lol: Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless

    • Batman (Referencing Commissioner Gordon's hand in killing The Joker): Gordon! But why?
      Commissioner Gordon: For Barbara.

      This statement is a reference to the landmark 1988 Batman graphic novel called The Killing Joke, where The Joker tried to make Commissioner Gordon go insane by making him helpless and forcing him to watch as his own daughter Barbara, was tortured by The Joker.
