For Your Batty Consideration: Siskel and Ebert

The fourth episode of our latest season focused on movies--that is, reviews of movies by TV critics, with a particular focus on Siskel and Ebert. We built the episode around a great 1989 installment of the two critics' long-running program, one that looked at Batman, Ghostbusters II, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, and Kung Fu Fighter. That's 3 blockbusters and a really, really cringy-sounding "art film" that is made by an acclaimed filmmaker and so Siskel and Ebert try to find meaning in it.

Anonymous Batty Insider says: "This was a fun episode that provided something a little different--too different to win Battys? Could one be nominated for something without the other? It'd be nice to see S&E get something, but smart money doesn't see a lot of opportunities."
