Batman 1989: Opening Credits and THE ABYSS

October 18, 2020


In which we send one previous host to the depths of the ocean in guest Dave Giannini of A PODCAST DIRECTED BY to come discuss the tragedy (maybe too strong of a word here) that is James Cameron's THE ABYSS not being available in a restored physical format.

Speaking of restored, new co-host Derek Stewart will spend the next 89 episodes (!) being unimpressed with 89 blockbusters that attempted to fill the shoes of Tim Burton's BATMAN from, you guessed it, 1989. Enjoy our opening credits of the new format for this podcast!
