Monster of the Day #1193

Grodd’s superintelligent plan was flawless. As predicted, the monster quickly fell victim to the wheelbarrow full of Burger King Spicy Chicken Fries™.

    “And the bartender says…he says, ‘Drag-on this!’ get it, Drag-on? Hah, I slay me…”

    At least they didn’t give him Burger King Onion Rings. There’s a limit to how much cruelty even the Legion of Doom can hand out.

    Ya know you’d think they’d bring along Captain Cold to you know… freeze these fire using monsters!?! At least Grodd as the smartest member of the party did think to use the others as a human (zombie, cat creature, and hipster?) shield.

    You’d think that the LoD would restrict members like the Riddler and Cheetah to janitorial duties. What the Hell can they contribute in a situation like this other than waste oxygen?

  • CaptNemo

    To placate the suits, Peter Jackson agreed to removed the Legion of Doom subplot subplot from his Hobbit trilogy in order to shorten the length.

    Here are the outtakes!

  • Eric Hinkle

    Well, Cheetah was strong and fast enough to take on Wonder Woman, who’s almost on a level here with pre-Crisis Superman*.

    I.e., the ‘put out a star by blowing on it like a candle’ Superman.

    Oh, I don’t know if this matters or not, but today is the 125th anniversary of the birth of H.P. Lovecraft. Wish I still had my copy of the original film of ‘The Dunwich Horror’ to watch in his honor.

    I always thought Hell would be a little more painful than this.

    Grundy seems to be the only one here with appropriate footwear.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    To quote Seanbaby on the Riddler – “Look out, world. Here comes a guy as tough as a regular guy, only easier to catch.”

  • The Dunwich Horror (good version) is on Netflix. On the other hand, YouTube has audio books of it up. No idea of the quality, though,,,

  • Now, now. That’s a 70’s Hanna-Barbera cartoon you’re talking about there. At worst they’re going through Heck, and even that seems too strong now that I’ve written it.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Thanks. I may have to take a look at Netflix. Just how much does it cost per month and how good is the service?

  • kgb_san_diego

    The streaming option is about $8 a month. The service has been flawless for me where my internet connection is OK.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    When I had Amazon Prime, it was available there, too.

  • For just the streaming service (which is what I have) it’s $7.99. According to my account, it covers two devices with HD available. There’s another plan that goes up to four devices for $11.99 (with HD) and a third that’s a single devices, but that’s also $7.99 for just standard, so I’m not sure what the point is.

    As for the service itself: I don’t have any problems with streaming, but the selection doesn’t warm the cockles of my heart. For instance, a lot of the Marvel movies have yet to pop up here (No Captain America: Winter Soldier, say, or Guadians of the Galaxy) I’m not sure about other first runs, and it might depend on other factors. The horror movie The Babadook came out last year and popped up fairly quick, so it might be the film companies wanting to get as much bang out of their DVDs as they can.

    Speaking of Marvel, Netflix is the only place to see the Daredevil TV series. I’ve watched one episode and found it pretty good.

    All that said, I tend to hit Netflix first before looking elsewhere. It might just be old habit on that, though, as I’ve been with Netflix for a while.

    You’re mileage, of course, may vary.

    Thanks for taking the time to explain all of that.
