My name is Tim Miller. This is my first post on WordPress, but I am by no means new to blogging. For many years I was a blogger on the IGN Blogs/.MyIGN, but with a new year I thought I would try starting a new blog. It will feature a lot of my similar stuff to my
old blog , just in a different place, so mostly entertainment stuff with a heavy dose of Arrested Development as the blog title is Blog of an Arrested Development Fan.
A little bit about me: I’m 26 from Missoula, Montana. I’m a huge fan of Arrested Development, Star Wars, and Batman among other things. I’m an aspiring writer and I also recently started doing stand-up comedy which I’m really starting to enjoy.
This is a new blog, but I’m still going to do some of the same features I did on my old blog. One such feature was called Future Installmentswhere I created a wishlist for a future installment in a game, movie, tv, or even comic franchise.
I just recently finished up Season 1 of the The Telltale Batman Series and while nothing has been officially announced I’m assuming a season 2 will happen and here are a few things I want to see in Batman; The Telltale Series Season 2
Returning Villains: The interactions with Selina were some of my favorite parts the first season and I would like to see that relationship continue. They set up Joker nicely as a dangling thread from Season 1 so I would be surprised if they don’t do anything with it. The also left it open for Two-face, Penguin and Lady Arkham to return, but I don’t care as much about them. I feel like they got covered pretty well in the first season
New Villains: I do like the fact they introduced Lady Arkham as a new character in the first season and I would like to see maybe a new one for Season 2, but I would also like to see classic Batman villains such as Riddler and Mr. Freeze make an appearance. I have a feeling Ras al Ghul and the League of Shadows is probably connected to Lady Arkham and the Children of Arkham so he would probably play a decent role in the story. One of my personal favorite villains that I feel like doesn’t get a lot of justice is Hush, so I wouldn’t mind seeing him play a role.
Robin: I know some are you are probably scoffing at the inclusion of Robin, but I think he is a big part of the Batman mythos and should not be overlooked. The first season takes place early in Batman’s career so I could see season 2 having him meet Dick Grayson, the first Robin
Continue to Provide new takes on the story: One of the things I enjoyed about Season 1 was there willingness to change some parts of the Batman Mythos such as Vicki Vale being Lady Arkham, Harvey Dent not necessarily being scarred, and a more personal connection between Bruce Wayne and Oswald Cobblepot. I would like that to continue in Season 2. One of the most memorable moments in the first season was the choice to save Harvey from being disfigured at Penguin’s hands. It provided a chance to change established continuity. I think, if Robin is included, a similar decision can be made where you can either save the Flying Grayson(Dick’s family) or not and see how that would alter the timeline and the Batman/Robin dynamic or even if it would even exist.
Anyways those are some of my thoughts for Batman: The Telltale Series Season 2. What do you guys think and what would you like to see?
Latest Stand-up Video: I mentioned I was a stand-up comedian so I think I might try and post my latest set at the end of each post
Weekly Comedy Pull List: Since I plan on doing one post a week, usually on Sundays(no promises though) I thought I would give you guys a preview of what comics I will be picking up this week.
What I got Last WeeK:
USAvengers #1: I’ve been looking for a marvel team book to read so I thought I would try this new series out. I enjoyed the first issue and will probably pick up at least the second issue
Klaus and the Witch of Winter: I picked up this one-shot because I really liked the mini-series, but I felt like there was a little lacking. I think there is more story to discover in the Klaus universe though.
X-files #9: I read this series mostly out of habit, but it does seem to keep sucking me back in
What I will Pick up this week:
Detective Comics #946: I’m definitely enjoying this current run of Detective Comics
All-star Batman #6: Another great Batman series. I’m excited for the start of the Mr. Freeze story arc
Poe Dameron #10: This is probably my second favorite ongoing Star Wars Series after the main one(RIP Darth Vader). It kind of makes me wish there were more Force Awaken-era series
What I might pick up this week:
Obi-wan and Anakin #1: I’m not sure about this one. It is a mini-series and I do like Star Wars, I just don’t know if I want a Prequel trilogy-era comic.
That’s what I’m picking up. What about you guys.
Post-end Poem: I’ve written a few poems here and there and I thought I would share them with you guys to cap off my post. Let me know what you think.
Creation of the Poem
The poem came first,
embedded in the soul
of the poet.
It sprang from him,
like an uncaged beast.
He let it pour out
and began to write feverishly.
piled on the floor.
From deep inside his being
the words leapt
Finally, he set his pen down,
and let out an exasperated sigh,
satisfied with the new creation.
