You've asked for it. You've waited for it. You've sent us dozens of emails about it, wondering when it was coming. And now, after months of waiting, it's finally here.
Presenting Remember When's tribute to The Dark Knight. We've seen it, more than once. But did we love it? Listen to this week's show as we review what is arguably the best movie of the year.
We start out reviewing The Dark Knight, even going over some of the problems we feel could have been trimmed out of the movie. We analyze one of the best performances from an actor (ever), and talk about some of the jaw dropping moments where we almost needed a change of pants.
Of course, it's not Remember When without our tangents, so we stick to what we do best. We look back on the old Batman movies (even the Adam West one) and talk about why they're still relevant, even if they don't necessarily hold up over time. And yes, we even talk about how other comic book movies are going to be hurt because of The Dark Knight.
This episode is filled with spoilers, so if you haven't seen The Dark Knight yet, you might want to jump to 1:17:32 to get past the majority of our spoiler discussion as we start talking about older shows.
Thank you so much to the many listeners that have left us positive feedback on iTunes. Please keep the feedback love coming! If you'd like to send us a note, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Just because it's the weekend before E3 doesn't mean we're leaving our Remember When listeners in the dark. We proudly present Episode 7 of the geekiest podcast available.
We start off the show with a spoiler-y discussion on Wall-E (14:30 to 25:45) then jump into the focus of this episode: Mel Brooks. We spend the rest of the episode talking about three of Mel's classic films: Blazing Saddles, Spaceballs, and Young Frankenstein. Don't worry, there's tangents galore here.
We also tangent off at the end of the show to talk about one of Jay's favorite franchises, Firefly (1:00:45).
Are you in the Los Angeles area? Would you like to come meet us and chat with us for a few minutes? We'll be at the Universal Citywalk on Thursday, July 17th from 8pm to 10pm. Come on out and say Hello, talk to us, and hang out.
If you dig the show, please take a few seconds and help us by leaving a review on iTunes, so that we can reach more people. And if you'd like to let us know what you think, send us an email at email@example.com!
