    Oh, but one good thing, my aneurysm is NOT dissected or ruptured. If it was dissected or ruptured, I think that's usually fatal. I think that's what happened to John Ritter, a dissected or ruptured aneurysm. :(

    OMFG! Stephen, your "groundbreaking Thoracic Aortic Dissection Repair" huh? OMFG and kinda YIKES. Guess what I have and am scheduled for surgery on on Oct. 20, Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm. F'in' majorly F'in SCARYYYYYY and I just watched the beginning of this video when you say that. LMAO and HELPPPPPPPPPP!! Hopefully, the surgeon will do a great job and I'll be okay, but then I have to go through healing of my sternum, which will take about 3 months, because they have to cut through my "perfectly good" sternum to get to the aorta. :( :( but hopefully, it'll be ALL OKAY, but it's so F'in' scaryyyyyy. LMAO! I do like your show quite a bit. I hope I'll get through this surgery ALL GOOD so I can watch your show some more. LOL!

    @Clooney You'd be more respected if you owned it. Is your self confidence so fragile that an old movie will ruin it for you? Or is your bond so tenuous showing something embarrassing will break it? I thought Clooney was a cool looking dude, but if anything, this made me lose my respect for him. I did not think this male idol was so weak. xD I really hope Clooney was just joking about that.

    I like Meanwhile but they're leaning on it so much these days. It used to be a rarer occasion which made the segment a bit of a treat. Now it's on almost every night. I imagine because it's easier to find funny headlines then only write a line or two about them as opposed to coming up with a 6 or 7 minute segment. What happened to those by the way? Stephen's remotes were some of the funniest things ever put to air. Bigger thoughts with Bigger Celebrities. I know there's been a pandemic but surely it's safe now. It feels like they're phoning it in a little which is disappointing. His interviews are OK and his monologues are fine but it's all the other stuff I used to love. Now that's basically just Meanwhile.

    1:43 -- oh. oh it's bad -- and it was one of my favorite movies as a kid in the 90's. If you watch the scene where Poison Ivy walks over Mrs. Freeze's plug and removes it you can see where they used cheap wrapping paper on the floor - crease and all! The "silver" paper that reflected all the colors and had some weird triangle shapes on it -- the one EVERYONE bought for the Christmas of 97 or 98. I think that's why they added the fog, to try to cover that up. I actually still enjoy the film, personally - but I'm sure its nostalgia. I liked that it was super comic-book-ish. Again, I was a kid when I watched it.

A hole in concrete with foot placement suggestions in a shed - nothing else in the room. BYO everything. Just some stray turds to navigate and admire.

    "Batman & Robin" was the kind of movie that was objectively terrible, but manages to be entertaining in how ridiculously over-the-top it is. ...besides, it's still unironically better than James Gunn's "The Suicide Squad"

      The Clooney Batman movies bring back the campy/ridiculousness of Batman. If you've ever watched the TV series with Adam West, you'd understand. Batman's dance and Robin's silly phrases were wonderful. Simpler times.

    It's not George Clooney's fault that Batman & Robin was bad. Clooney was fine as Batman. When someone writes you awful dialog, and then a director insists that you read the dialog badly in order to replicate his complete misunderstanding of a comic book format as something that caters only to 8 year old boys with learning disorders, there's only so much you can do.

Regardless of my dislike for these shows and movies I am compelled to do this. However, I turned CATS off after 20 minutes and I was not compelled to finish it. That's how bad this movie was, and I've seen the first version. Also, CATS isn't the same without Growltiger.
