The Dark Knight

Yes, we did watch these great masterpieces of cinema history.

So this episode is late because guess what? I went into my little folder, with all of this season recorded, and edited “Episode 4.3”. Seems correct, right? Turns out I had misnumbered the episodes, and so I actually edited episode 4 of this season, that is, the next episode after this (50 Shades of Grey). Anyway, this episode is a week late and it’s obviously worth the wait. It’s Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

43:21: For some reason I decided to joker laugh in the background, dunno why I did this.
57:02: UCSC, a pretty legitimate source, says that Dickens was not paid by the word, and was actaully paid by chapter/installment. Case closed I guess.
58:53: Here, read these Madame Defarge influences for yourself, completely unsourced.
