Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Fun

 Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day was my elementary school principal’s favorite book, and I remember that he would read it to us whenever he visited our class. By the time I was in 3rd grade, I could recite the story back and forth.

So with that being said, you can only imagine how excited I was to hear that Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day was being made into a movie!

Holy Guest Stars, Batman!

Batman box setIf you grew up like me watching the Adam West version of Batman on tv, you may have heard that the series is being released on blu ray and dvd later this year. This show has been at the top of my list (along with The Wonder Years) of series I’ve been hoping to be released for years now. Who doesn’t love the campiness of the Pow! Sock! Blam! Zap! Splat! onomatopoeia that came along with Batman and Robin laying waste to the villainy that plagued Gotham City?

This classic series ran from 1966 to 1968, but has lived on in pop culture and in syndication for the decades since.  I have owned Batman: The Movie for years, which was also released in 1966, but wasn’t put out on dvd until 2001. The Caped Crusader and Boy Wonder have long been some of my favorite super heroes and I cannot wait to buy this box set of all 120 episodes with bonus features when it is released on November 11th.
