Same Bat-Time, New Bat-Channel

So there's that new network co-owned by Discovery and Hasbro called The Hub, set up to replace Discovery Kids. Most of the programming is either learny-type edutainment of the sort that Discovery Kids aired (Tutenstein, Kenny the Shark), stuff based on Hasbro properties (GI Joe, Transformers, various board games incorporated into a game show called Family Game Night), or family friendly 80s reruns (Family Ties, Doogie Howser, Wonder Years) but none of that matters.

11:30 pm weeknights and, IIRC, rerunning 5:30 am? That's when you want to watch and/or DVR. Because that's when the one, true Batman is on.


If the Powers That Be are going to continue to stand in the way of this show coming out on DVD, then the least someone can do is make sure it's always on the air somewhere. Thank you, The Hub. You've just justified your entire existence to me.

I came across this channel last night, too. Batman is awesome, but I was just as thrilled to watch an episode of Laverne & Shirley! Been too long...
