It's Not Just Batgirl; HBOmax May Be Canceled Too
Show Notes

LET'S TALK: 

On Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022, the news broke that Batgirl, an upcoming DC film featuring the continued return of Michael Keaton's Batman as an old, weathered, matured Bruce Wayne training a young Barbara Gordon, was canceled. But that's not all; the film was nearly complete, virtually gold by the time the axe came down. Along with its death came the cancelation of Scoob! 2, and several other upcoming properties deemed unworthy.

This news also comes with expected, wild changes to what's considered many cinephile's #1 streaming service: HBOmax. With the finalized merge between Discovery and Warner Brothers, things sure are changing, and Melvin and Daniel felt so affected by the news that they put together this surprise, impromptu episode so they could complain about it.

Due to the quick nature of this episode's recording and scheduling, the episode also hasn't been edited. All coughs, squeaks, and sound distractions are included. How ASMR of us! Despite this, we're sure the content is still worthwhile. Please enjoy!
