@thebluedragon07: @SelinaWayne:

AS a matter of fact, I think we can make this happen. I just had a Live Chat with a Netflix rep and here was the result:

Nice to meet you Ben! Your first name is more then enough bud. Actually I am your personal link to making this happen! All chat's are read and reviewed. So would you mind if I flagged and notated this chat? I would love to share this golden feedback and do everything within my power to make this happen for you! In fact if you wanted to simply tell you friends to chat in and do the same thing, that would be the quickest way to seeing some results! And with the numbers being in the thousands, as you said. You will see results right away!

Not at all, please flag it, do whatever you can! This information is much appreciated it and I'm going to spread the word where I can to make our collective voice be heard, haha. Thanks for your help and the great info chad! You have a good day!

So tell everyone you know! I'm going to put this on the forum here somewhere, just go tohttps://contactus.netflix.com/Help go to the bottom to LIVE CHAT and tell that person how much you love Batman: TAS and how badly you want it streaming. If enough of us do it and waste enough of their time, they'll do it just to shut us up and stop wasting employee time on it. Let's do this.

I think it's safe to say that 99% of us want Batman: The Animated Series/The Adventures of Batman & Robin on there more than anything, soooo I suggest we all email Netflix or get a petition going about this and if we're relentless and annoying enough they've gotta do it right? I don't know why they haven't yet, I know they've gotta it on the DVD to your house section (but who wants to pay double and wait for mail when there's so much streaming?) but with all the other DC animated stuff you think they'd go ahead and put as much as they can on there.

The world tinkers between normalcy and chaos as some of the women left in the world try to go on with their lives, while others just go all "Mad Max."

Arghhh! The word is "teeters." Would someone at CBSi please hire CV an editor? Please! Please!

I loved the article because I too am very fond of Y: The Last Man, and I don't mean this as a direct shot at you [Matt], but I agree with this guy because this is a frequent problem with, arguably, every article I read on this site written by an actual EDITOR or at the very least a paid employee!

That's right, every male on the planet, not just human males, has died and the world, and this story doesn't go the way you think it would.

And the world what? Do you mean IN the world?

It's fantastic story telling though art, and it completely fits in with the Vertigo style many fans have become accustomed to.

Here, it seems like you might be about to say something akin to "however the art..." but I'm sure you mean 'through the art'

Aside from the final issue, a singular issue brought me to tears.

This one may be the fault of my own poor skills of interpretation. Are you saying every other issue other than the last one brought you to tears or are you referring to the last issue as the singular issue that brought you to tears? As I said before, I honestly do not blame you Matt, I don't know whether or not you get paid and I know if I didn't I wouldn't give a crap about whether or not there were typos or any other errors in my articles either. The fact of the matter is I see this same thing all the time from people I know are paid employees or, ahem, editors in chief, and I just think it might not hurt for articles to get sent to one another for a little editing just to make sure points are being made in a clear and concise manner that's all. Seriously though, I'm just being nit-picky and I don't want to come off sounding like a jerk-face, this is a great article and you're all doing society a great favor by doing what you do and spreading the word about damn good comics. There needs to be more articles on Comic Vine like this in which older, already completed, comics get some light shed on them for folks who may not be in the know.

For some reason, I really liked seeing Darryl and the Governor's henchman getting along even though they'll be trying to kill one another soon. It's kind of cool that THESE two guys could set aside the whole foolishness of the whole 'this is MY land' way of thinking and just get along when their 'leaders' can't. Also, I won't be some internet dullard and say horrible things about Ms. Holden, she's a fine actress I guess, but holy shit that is NOT Andrea. That is just a character they created for the show whose name also happens to be Andrea. That's what I keep telling myself because the Andrea in the comics has more character in one fingernail than the character has in her whole body; they are just worlds apart..

When video games try to focus on the comedy the gameplay usually takes a hit. I'm a fan of the Duke Nukem series, and since the long awaited next gen entry got terrible reviews I waited until just a few days ago when I found it for an unprecedented $3.59 pre-owned at gamestop, and honestly it's not all that bad, certainly worth what I paid for the laughs if for nothing else. So as long as Deadpool is at least tolerable to play and makes with the funny I will definitely be looking forward to finding it for $20 a year after it's released.

I know any more comments are just beating a dead horse at this point, but damn am I glad they went back to the classic design. The other one looked...I dunno...like a gym shoe? I can't explain it, but it's like the hands were blue on some fingers, and red on others, and you had all this other crap going on..you know what I mean. If ain't broke, don't fix it.
