Hey everyone, and welcome back to Across the Airwaves’ classic spin-off podcast entitled “Retro Reviews”. Today we speak to you all with very heavy hearts as Woo and I return from our slumber to talk about the theater shooting that took place at The Dark Knight Rises midnight screening in Aurora, Colorado. First of all, we’d like to send our deepest sympathies from here at ATA towards the victims and the families of the victims during this terrible time. Secondly, this even really disturbed Woo and I, and we really get emotional and angry in this podcast. I do encourage you to listen to it, because we do get light-hearted again while talking about The Dark Knight Rises, Arrow & Supernatural at SDCC, and the Man of Steel trailer in detail. And while we do briefly discuss those last three things, the main event of this podcast is our long discussion on this event, as well as our Man of Steel trailer that is suppose to give us hope. If you are afraid to go see TDKR, or any movie at all, I’d encourage you to rise above your fear, doubts, and anger to do it. Not only is it one of the greatest films of the year, but it’s also the most epic end to a trilogy that I have ever seen (well, maybe it ties with Return of the King & Return of the Jedi…). The whole point of The Dark Knight Rises and the Dark Knight Trilogy in general is overcoming fear to be better than we are. This is what I encourage all of you to do. Thank you, and enjoy our tribute to the families and victims of this terrible tragedy.

I would also like to thank my friend and co-host Woo for coming on with me to record this. It needed to be done and we both felt a lot better afterwards, even if we had to record the episode twice in one night because the first recording failed. Also, credits to Woo for finding this picture, it’s beautiful.
