Hosted by Glenn and his very special guests, this podcast is a virtual trip back in time to the halcyon days of our childhood - the 1980s (and early 1990s). Every week we explore at least one facet of 80's pop culture, discuss questions from our listeners, and report the news from at least 4 of the main franchises of the 80's that are still around today!

Welcome to a new branch of the BTTE tree! This is all about DC Comics, and the love that Glenn and Amy have for them and their massive roster of characters.

Over the coming months we'll be looking at everything DC, including, the movies, TV shows, cartoons, memorabilia and of course, the comic books themselves.

In this first episode, Amy and Glenn have a bit of a natter about why they love DC, their favourite characters, books, TV series and movies, and even profess their great love for a certain Green Lantern villain...

Enjoy!

Paula went to Dimension Jump, the Red Dwarf convention, and she has exciting stories to tell! Tales of adventure, of meeting actors and podcast team members, of dragons and sorcery...the last two might not be true. Or are they?*

The team also have a good old chat about the Boys from the Dwarf, why they like the series so much, their favourite episodes and lines from the show, and why Rimmer is the best character in the history of everything.

So join us, as we go 3 million years into the future, where there is only beer and curries, and everything smells like the inside of a bag of dry roasted peanuts.

*They aren't.

Episode 286 - Between Two Pillows

It's Becca's turn to spotlight this week, and she's chosen to look at perhaps the ultimate John Hughes road movie: Planes, Trains and Automobiles!

We discuss not only that, but Hughes movies in general, and the influence he had on a whole generation of comedy performers from the Eighties right up to now!

Episode 285 - Does Whatever a Spider Can

We head to Marvel's New York City for this week's spotlight, as Sam talks about his favourite superhero - the Amazing Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man!

From the 1981 series, to his team up with some Amazing Friends, to his own animated series, and even when he was Unlimited or Neil Patrick Harris, this episode is full of Spidey!

From Speak'n'Spell to 2XL, from Major Morgan to Teddy Ruxpin, Paula's going to take us down an aural memory lane this week with a spotlight on talking toys of the 1980's!

Becka and Glenn come along for the ride, and chip in their favourites - what are YOUR faves?

Next week: it's Morphin' time!

Jii, Sam and Glenn are joined by Annie and Eddie Palitoy this week, as they discuss not only some of the cartoons that perhaps we're not as nostalgic about as we should be, but they also take a trip down an edible memory lane as they take a look at food from the 80s that we should all be remembering fondly! 

And yes, that includes He-Man jellies.

When the Music Stops: Decepticons at the Pole

This week sees the return of the Transformers to WTMS, and in particular, to a time when Hot Rod and Cyclonus led the Autobots and Decepticons, on Nebulos, at least. Also, many centuries have passed. So Spike = dead. On the plus side, so is Daniel. And Scorponok isn't a sentient being. The Ladybird continuity is weiiiiiiiird.

Episode 202

Back to the Eighties welcomes a very special guest this week, as AJ Locascio, voice of none other than Marty McFly in the Telltale Back to the Future games drops by! Yes folks, one of the few people to play one of our favourite characters is in the house! AJ talks about his role as Marty in the games, how he came to be interested in films to begin with, and even his love of nostalgia (and BTTF, Indiana Jones, Ninja Turtles...the list goes on...) We'd all like to thank AJ for his time and hope that he'd like to come on the show again in the future!

We also have your homework about things you'd like to see INNNNN SPAAAAAAAAAAACE, and also have a good old natter about wrestling. So join us please, as we go Back...to the Eighties.

When the Music Stops: Skeletor's Ice Attack

It's all the way back to Earth year 1984 this week, and another visit to Eternia, to check in on everyone's favourite living skeleton and his struggle against He-Man. It's not going so well, to be honest. So much so, that Skeletor's had to resort to using Mer Man to attack Prince Adam and the Royal Family on their summer holidays. Maybe Skeletor should have used Nicholas Witchell instead. I bet King Randor HATES Nicholas Witchell.

Wotcher! After a week away we're back, and this time we have added extra Chris Vint! He joins Sam and Glenn as they explore the wonderful world of Ulysses 31, and find out whether the eponymous hero really does get to go home, and also whether his crew survive being made as lifeless as stone!

There's also news, lots of news, ALL THE NEWS, from Star Wars and Transformers, and also a 200th episode message from a late'un.

Oh yeah, and also homework: which myth, legend or story could do with the space opera treatment that Ulysses got? Answers on a postcard please, as well as questions for next week's guest, AJ Locascio, famous for providing the voice of Marty Mcfly in Telltale games Back to the Future adventure game!

We made it!

Yes folks, Back to the Eighties is officially 200 episodes old, and Phil, Sam, and Glenn feel like celebrating. So here they are to read out some of the messages we've received from to mark the occasion, as well as mention some of their favourite moments, and why they enjoy making this wonderful show so much.

There's also a smattering of news, but really, that's not what this week is about. So make a nice cup of tea, put your feet up, and enjoy the milk poop.

Thanks for listening.

When the Music Stops: Warlord of Eternia

Hey you! Yes, you! How about a Masters of the Universe story that doesn't have He-Man in it and focuses solely on Skeletor, Beast-Man and Evil-Lyn going back through time to recruit an army...with hilarious consequences!

You want it, you got it. Warlord of Eternia is based on a story from the one-shot Ladybird Masters of the Universe annual, and features only the Evil Warriors on an ill-advised jaunt into the past!

If you recognise the storyteller, then you might be surprised to learn that it's actually Ed Bishop, probably best known for his portrayal of Captain Blue, Captain Scarlet's BFF!

Howdy, pards. This week sees Jii, Phil, Sam and Glenn fixin' on givin' you guys a lesson in lawgivin', using that there Marshal Bravestarr as an example of how to do things RIGHT on New Texas.

They'll also mosey on down through all the news that's worth reportin', not that there's much of that these days. Things just ain't been the same since Tex Hex and his gang ran off with the News Coach that ran through these parts a few months back.

Remember though, next week BTTE hits 200 episodes, and we'd like to hear your favourite parts of the podcast, and what you'd like to hear more of - details in this week's show!

When the Music Stops: Decepticon Hideout

This week we visit the Transformerverse during it's mid-Eighties difficult-second-album phase, as Optimus Prime and Megatron have gone, and in their place stand the New Leaders; Ultra Magnus and Galvatron. This was odd, because these Movie-era Ladybird adventures chose to eschew the movie more or less, and took their cues from the Marvel UK comic that Simon Furman was having so much fun writing at the time.

In this story, the Autobots discover that the Decepticons are constructing a hidden base, very near their own - will they be able to stop them in time, before the Decepticons strike?

When the Music Stops: She-Ra and the Surprise Party

It's Madame Razz's 1009th birthday, and that's cause enough for celebration in the Whispering Woods, and so a huge surprise party is planned! However, is it really a good idea to invite Catra to proceedings? And will Madame Razz find out about the party before the surprise is sprung? 

All these questions and more are answered in this week's When the Music Stops!

We're back! After a month away for holidays, sickness, etc Phil and Glenn return with the podcast that travels back through time in a rose tinted DeLorean! This week, we catch up on all the things we've done in the last month, as well as talk about Guardians of the Galaxy, and of course, what we think of the start of season 8 of Doctor Who, including how we're feeling about the Twelfth Doctor at this point!

There's also all the news that's worth reporting on, and a good discussion about crisps, sweeties, and other things from our favourite decade that probably wouldn't be allowed now because they're too full of e-numbers.

SDCC starts TODAY, and there's already been some major Transformers news! So join Glenn, Sam and Phil as they find out what that could be, and share in their joy and happiness, because it's all very exciting this time around!

They also spotlight the British superhero amazement and weirdness that is Bananaman, and discuss some of the more conventional superhero stories that may be coming out of SDCC this week, as well as a very hopeful TMNT auction, and JJ Abrams' latest Star Wars teaser.

Episode 193

Phil's back with the team this week, as Becca spotlights an early 90's classic - the satirical newsroom comedy, Drop the Dead Donkey!

Also this week, the BTTE newsroom gets busy, with news coming from TMNT, Transformers, and the new Power Rangers movie.

We also discuss LFCC, CFCC, and the current state of the toy market, including the question of whether EVERYTHING should be a combining robot these days.

16 weeks until CFCC!

Jenny from World of Crap joins us again this week, and together with Becca, Jii and Glenn, goes back to a simpler time when a man could live with an anthropmorphic bear, a pink hippo and a magically animated rugby ball and no-one would bat an eyelid. Yes folks, this week we're spotlighting Rainbow.

We also have all the news that matters, including MOTU, Transformers and even some Andersonia, as well as a good discussion of a Red Dwarf nature. Smoke me a kipper.

1 WEEK UNTIL LFCC.

Episode 191

It was Botcon last weekend, so we're having a little bit of a special Newsround this week, as Becca, Sam and Glenn talk about all of the various goings on and amazing announcements at this year's main Transformers Expo.

Becca's also spotlighting the various Sherlock Holmes series made by Granada in the 80's and early 90's, starring the supremely talented and much missed Jeremy Brett.

We also talk about the live television moments that stick in our huge nostalgic brains, as well as a couple of movies we're looking forward to, and of course, the latest announcements from LFCC, which is only TWO WEEKS AWAY.

They also report on all of the news that's worth reporting on this week, such as a great new SDCC set for Transformers, some MAJOR news for MOTU, all the Star Wars news (luckily this week we're not telling Harrison Ford to break a leg) and even some Thunderbirds news!

It's all going on this week, guv'nor.

Episode 189

As promised last week, we have a very special guest on this week's show. It's Jenny from World of Crap, her wonderful nostalgic website that covers all the great 80's experiences from He-Man to Bullseye!

She joins Sam and Glenn as they discuss the wonderful and sometimes bizarre world of 80's daytime telly, which had not yet felt the caress of Jeremy Kyle, nor the taint of Homes Under the Hammer. Good times.

A very big thanks to Jenny for coming on the show this week, and believe me, she will be back!

Sadly, the news is not all good this week, as we've lost a legend. RIP Rik Mayall. Just in case the grown ups ask, that's why the kids are crying.

Episode 188

It's a full compliment this week, as the crew get down and dirty with one of the true iconic TV programmes of the Eighties, Knight Rider! Let's face it, it doesn't GET more Eighties than that.

There's also NEWS! Lots of news. SO MUCH NEWS. From Transformers (where the house is divided on the subject of the SDCC set) to Masters (where Jii clues us all in on a great discovery he's made) to Star Wars (where there's been lots of great developments to Episode VII, including JJ trolling the interwebz) to Ghostbusters (30 years? Really?) and even a bit of TMNT news thrown in for good measure (we still can't wait for this movie).

It's a full show, to be sure. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's BACK TO THE EIGHTIES.

This episode sees Jii, Glenn, Sam and Phil having a good old natter about what they were up to (and what they were buying) whilst BTTE was off the air. The subjects, as always, are eclectic, ranging from Kamen Rider and Power Rangers, to Godzilla and even My Little Pony. Yeah. It gets THAT weird.

There's also all the news that we can possibly cram into a 3 hour podcast, as well as an announcement about this year's Roll Out Roll Call. So what are you waiting for?

You'll have to be very careful with the contents of this week's WTMS. DON'T let it get wet, DON'T expose it to sunlight, and on no account NEVER, EVER feed it after midnight, no matter how much it begs.

Yes folks, it's the Rainbow adaptation of Gremlins!

BTTE Extra with Glenn & Jeremy

Folks, it's time to say hello to an old friend. It's been a while, but Jeremy is back! In what we hope to be a regular monthly feature, he and Glenn are going to be going through the histories of some of our very favourite franchises. and charting their rises, falls, seeing them rise again from the ashes, and assessing where they stand today, and asking the question, "Where do they go from here?"

To start off with, it's the Real American Heroes of GI Joe - YO JOE!

Meanwhile, Phil, Sam and Glenn check out and spotlight the 1978 TV series of the Amazing Spider-Man, and have a bit of a natter as to why that series didn't work but series like The Incredible Hulk and Wonder Woman did.

The guys also check out all of the news that's fit to talk about (including some very interesting Star Wars news), and answer a few of your questions on Facebook!

WTMS: Man-Thing - Night of the Laughing Dead

Hey now, kids. This readalong is important now, for it would seem that this guy is now a part of the Marvel movieverse. Which is good, he's a very cool and interesting character. Embrace the fact, don't be scared.

No really, don't feel fear. Because whatever knows fear, burns at the Man-Thing's touch!

There's also news of all kinds, including updates on Transformers, MOTU, Sectaurs, Gobots and EVEN Thunderbirds and Terrahawks, as well as a smattering of answers to your questions!

There's also all the news that you need to know from all of our favourite franchises, including a look at the full Transformers 4 roster, some interesting MOTU developments, Megan Fox's assurances about April O'Neil, and a discussion about the future of the GI Joe brand - if it even HAS a future.

Also, RIP Warrior. May fiery elephants fly you right on your way to Valhalla. *skronk*

This episode sees Sam, Glenn and Phil go on a trip into the deep dark recesses of their minds, to recant some of the wild and whimsical times they had when they went on school trips, so expect tales of woe from theme parks, historical monuments, museums, and brass rubbing. A crapload of brass rubbing.

Phil and Glenn also bring you the news this week from both Transformers AND Turtles, you lucky people, as well as a LOT of rambling and discussions going off at interesting tangents. Basically, the same mix of informative weirdness you lot have come to expect of us, really.

This week sees the return of our very own Jii, and he's bringing the ultimate war of nerves with him, in the form of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons (to be all formal and give it it's full title)!

The team (for there is a full compliment this week, yo) also has a good old rummage in the news bag, with Jii bringing us all the MOTU goodness, Glenn bringing the Transformers noise, Phil updating the TMNT blackboard, and Sam bringing the most amazing news report ever. You heard it here first.

Oh, and we also ramble on a bit like the bunch of old random twats we are.

Episode 178

Back to business this week, as Phil, Becca and Glenn spotlight the wonderment (and by wonderment, I of course mean weirdness and horror) that is TERRAHAWKS, as Anderson month continues!

We also take a look at the new Transformers 4 trailer, and report on all of the other news that comes forth from our favourite franchises this week!

Cybertrax: SOS Dinobots

Well hello there, my amateur paleontologists! Welcome to Jurassic Cybertrax, where Glenn and Mikey explore the dark side of Wheeljack's mindset, as he goes all John Hammond on us and creates three of the biggest, baddest and most dangerous Autobots that you ever did see: the Dinobots!

No really, he spared no expense.

Cybertrax: Fire on the Mountain

After a couple of months away, Cybertrax is BACK!

This week, we take a look at what happened to Jetfire, sorry SKYfire, after he was left to rot by the Autobots, sorry, given a heroes' send off and buried with full honours.

TL; DR - he was turned into a minicab. Also, Megatron has "stress issues".

Today's the first day of Gerry Anderson month, and to kick us off, Becca's spotlighting one of the lesser lauded entries in Anderson oeuvre, the 1970 live action sci-fi series UFO!

Also, joining Jii, Becca and Glenn this week is a special guest. A special guest from another podcast...be excited. And afraid. Very afraid.

Stick with us though, because not only do we have all the news that's fit to discuss, we also take on one of Jii's biggest pet peeeves...

Episode 174

It's back to Illnois in 1980 this week, as Glenn, Phil and Becca spotlight a true Eighties classic - The Blues Brothers!

They also trawl the depths of the news pipe, and prepare to be disappointed as the UK Toy Fair news turns out to be a little lighter than expected, just wait until you find out why!

We have a bonus section too this week dear listener, as we finally get round to answering someof your questions - keep sending them in, BTTE fans!

Stay tuned for next week's episode, as Gerry Anderson month will start with an organ harvesting bang, as Becca wil be spotlighting the 1970 classic series UFO!

This week though, it's back to 1982 for a look at a Japanese puppet show that many of you may have forgotten...not for long!

We also have all the news that's fit to talk about this week, including MOTU news, Transformers Age of Extinction toy news and even convention news which will have Gerry Anderson fans all of a fluster!

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2014! We'd like to start off slowly this year (as everyone does when they go back to work, right?), so Glenn, Phil, Becca and Sam will all regail us with tales of Christmas and what they got for their prezzies!

They also discuss two other very important aspects of Christmas, name Doctor Who and Sherlock and how this year's offerings fared, and how the future might look for these two programmes.

Add in a smidgin of news (because there's not that much) and you have an episode that's full to the brim of rich new year goodness.

Episode 171

It's Christmas at BTTE Towers, and it's time to celebrate by spotlighting that oh-so-staple Christmas gameshow of the 1980s, 3-2-1!

So join Jii, Glenn, Phil and Sam as they delve into the depths of Dusty Bin, and see what weird and wonderful news stories they can dig up, even though it's the Christmas period, and there really isn't much news around.

This is more than likely the last show of 2013, but we'll be back in 2014 to annoy and upset you even more than we have in the last 3 years - yes, we'll be 4 in March 2014.

We'd all like to wish you a happy and bright Christmas, and a brilliant New Year!

Last Saturday saw the Day of the Doctor become a reality, so join Glenn, Phil and Becca as they discuss the main event of the 50th birthday celebrations for Doctor Who, and all of the ramifications and insights into the future that it brought with it. Also, enjoy all of the news this week, including Transformers, Turtles and a good healthy dollop of Robocop.

Back to the Eighties - 8 out of 10 nerdy nostalgic types recommend it!

(NB If you haven't seen Day of the Doctor yet, needless to say this episode is pretty spoilerrific. You have been warned.)

Cybertrax: Divide and Conquer

This week's adventure features not only a trip to Cybertron, not only the one and only appearance of the Rainmakers, NOT ONLY one of the biggest reasons for a HUGE Transformers retcon, but also the first commentary on Cybertrax for Becca! If that's not reason enough to have a listen, then I just don't know what is.

Episode 168

This week we discuss fear - specifically your fear of horror movies or certain scenes from said movies from when you were ickle. Come on, we all know you used to sneak a peak at the horror movies on video or TV - and this is where you finally admit it, and that's the reason you're scared of sharks, alien furballs or angry Jewish ghosts.

We also welcome a special guest on for the second half - but I'm not telling you who that is, suffice to say things get very silly from that point onwards.

We're also reporting all the news that's cool and relevant this week (including some exciting Transformers news, Turtles rumblings and Star Wars firming up) as well as all of the usual banter.

So, join Glenn, Phil & Sam, and remember, don't forget to put on your mask for the great giveaway - keep watching the flashing pumpkin!

MOTU Special

Yes folks, it's time to round off the very loose Masters of the Universe trilogy on Back to the Eighties with a special episode completely dedicated to He-Man, She-Ra, Skeletor and all of the other great characters from Eternia, Etheria and beyond!

Joining me on this retrospective are our good friends Dom Blanco (in his first EVER BTTE appearance), and Chris Vint (in his first BTTE appearance in about two and half years!) Come with us on a journey from the very first baby steps that He-Man took in 1982, all the way through to 200X and remember - if you see Skeletor's face on a bottle, be sure NEVER to drink from it!

This week sees the return of Mr Jii into the mix, just in time to join Glenn and Phil as they spotlight the Masters of the Universe franchise, from the very beginning in 1976, where one of the dumbest business decisions of all time would lead to one of the most lucrative properties of the 1980s, right up until the present day with the Classics line.

We also report on all the news that's worth knowing, and discuss some memories of our favourite decade, including why we love nostalgia so very much!

Episode 165

It's a sad day for us here at BTTE Towers, as we mourn the passing of Filmation legend Lou Scheimer. Lou gave us so many great shows, so it's only fair that we have a bit of a retrospective today. I'm sure we'll also do a more comprehensive tribute somewhere down the line as well.

RIP Lou, and thanks for the memories. You had the power.

We also look at all of the news worth talking about this week, and answer some of your questions.

Episode 163

Greetings, nostalgia fans! Glenn here, apologising for last week's abscence. This week we are back however, so join us, Glenn, Phil, Sam and Jii as we talk about our time away from the podcast, our favourite toys from the 1980s (including a good discussion about Masters of the Universe), and all the news that's fit to talk about in the world of toys.

After a break of one week, we will be back, next time (hopefully) with the comic book special, this time about Marvel UK Transformers!

CyberTrax: MTMTE Episode 1

Ok folks, here it is: the very first episode of my own personal challenge to dvd commentorize (not a real word) EVERY SINGLE EPISODE of G1 animated goodness, INCLUDING all of the Japanese original material! 

Episode one is of coure the first part of the 3-story miniseries that has come to be known "More Than Meets the Eye", and joining me for the next three weeks is a very familiar voice to Transformers DVD commentaries, Mr Chris McFeely himself!

So sit back, relax, and listen to the first of a very, very long series of commentaries, with a real Transformers expert, and that bloke off Back to the Eighties.

If YOU would like to be a part of this, then don't delay! Get in touch with me, today!

Inside the Eighties Studio #4: Grufflock

Yes folks, it's that time of week where I kidnap someone in the nostalgia TARDIS, and whisk them back to their childhoods, to see what makes them tick, and what their most favourite memories of everyone's favourite decade were.

This week, it's Old Oilhouse impresario and man I homage quite often, Grufflock!

Strap yourselves in. It's gonna be a long one.

Yes folks, here it is - the full 36 minute readalong version of the ultimate He-Man/She-Ra experience! 

Listen as Prince Adam is sent to Etheria by the Sorceress, to pick up a very special sword - but wait! Not everything is as it seems on this strange world, as He-Man is enlisted by rebels to fight against the Evil Horde and it's monstrous leader, HORDAK! Not only that, but He-Man discovers that someone very close to him indeed is hiding in plain sight on Etheria, completely unaware of who she is...

There's also all of the news that's worth listening to, including some great news about Masterpiece G2 Sideswipe, interesting developments concerning the new Star Wars movies, and Power Lords becoming more and more essential with every second that passes!

WTMS - Transformers: Laserbeak's Fury

This week sees a tale from the Transformers, and from the spotlight hogging little crittertape himself - Laserbeak!

When Laserbeak gets himself trapped in cassette form while on a routine mission, hi-jinks ensue. Add to that the promise of a non-electrical mechanical device and a village dance, and well, you either have yourselves an exciting Transformers adventure, or the weirdest episode of Frasier EVER.

Episode 160

Welcome one and all, to the 160th episode of Back to the Eighties, where Glenn, Phil and Sam all seem to have bought the same toy this week, and are desperate to wax lyrical about it's awesomess. Whatever could it be?

Sam also spotlights an amazing comedy film from 1983, starring Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy - Trading Places!

Also, we take a look at all of the news doing the rounds this week including some exciting Turtles news, some great news about a new Star Wars comic coming your way, and all the Transformers and GI Joe news you could shake a stick at, including a Roll Out Roll Call update (tickets now available!)

LOL.

We also ferret out all the news from our favourite franchises, including (for once) Ghostbusters news! Seriously, will that third movie ever get made?

Add to the mix a couple of listener questions, and well, that's a rich enough feast for any King of the Nerds.

Yes folks, all the way from 1982, comes TRON, a story about a computer programmer who gets digitised and sent into a another dimension, where he has to save everything from the bad guys, especially David Warner!

Interesting fact - Corey Burton took inspiration from Warner's character in TRON when he was creating the voice of G1 Shockwave in the cartoon. Well I found it interesting.

This week, it's the turn of what I'm guessing was some people's first experience of still the best Transformers movie - the animated 1986 spectacular that saw the debuts of Hot Rod, Kup, Blurr, and of course the most awesome Autobot of them all - Ultra Magnus!

Spoiler - Optimus Prime dies in this one. Just a warning for those of a nervous disposition there.

Episode 155

The full gang's back this week (for the last time in a little while), and the guys discuss many, many things, including the weather, sport (Andy Murray winning a tennis, for example), and the state of broadband connectivity vs. dialup.

They also find out what YOU used to be in the playground (along with who you may have injured), as well as all the news that's worth knowing in the wide, geeky world - and considering it was Botcon a couple of weeks ago, that's quite a lot of stuff to begin with.

We also find out what the guys used to do on their summer holidays - long story short, everyone except Glenn did interesting stuff. Glenn watched cartoons and was grumpy. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

Episode 154

This week it's Jii, Glenn and Sam against the world! Well, podcasting about their childhoods and nerdy stuff, anyways. 

Together, they take on who YOU would want to leap into and save the universe (or use it to nefariously look at childhood crushes), as well as taking a look at all the news worth looking at this week.

Also: we answer the question of who we roleplayed as in the school playground. Some of us dreamt we were Darth Vader, others a perpetual motion machine...

WTMS: Batman - The Case of the Laughing Sphinx

This week it's time to join Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder, as they take on Gotham's shadowy underworld and such fiends as the Joker, Penguin and Catwoman! We also discover the tragic origins of Robin, and how come he ended up being Batman's dynamic and loyal sidekick! 

(Although if you don't already know that, you kind of suck as a nerd.)
