Now, I’ve been focusing a lot lately here things that aren’t fun, good, enjoyable or whatever since, well, two reasons: 1) It’s the internet and hatred is as common as hydrogen and 2) Angry ranting is fun.

So to switch gears dramatically, here’s something I DO like: Batman The Brave And The Bold. The short of it is that it’s a Batman cartoon that combines cheesy one liners, crazy-awesome ideas, a 60s retro aesthetic and guest stars galore. The Dark Knight might’ve been a monumental movie about the darkness in men’s souls, but The Brave And The Bold has something over the Dark Knight; namely, I can spend the entire experience with a big stupid grin on my face. It’s a Batman that inner monologues with tongue embedded in cheek, plays well with others and is crazy prepared for any obstacle because even if he doesn’t know how to solve a problem, he knows someone who does.

And the show single handedly made Aquaman awesome.

Read that sentence again.

See, now you’re curious. Aquaman = Awesome on this show. He’s like a barrel-chested Errol Flynn that can’t stop speaking in exclamations and regaling people with tales of his adventures. And he say “Outrageous!” a lot.
