Episode 92 – Bat/Bad Dads

On this episode of Nerd & Tie we mourn the passing of Richard Hatch, celebrate the joy that is The Lego Batman Movie, consider Ben Affleck’s departure from The Batman‘s director’s chair, and prematurely miss Peter Capaldi leaving Doctor Who. Then it’s on to the con scene, where Eternal Con organizer Frank Patz has gotten himself banned from New York Comic Con (and all ReedPop events), STX Brazos Valley Comic Con guests are getting charged for hotel rooms that were supposedly paid for, and Crunchyroll has decided that Northern California totally needs another anime convention.

Just like most of us need another hole in the head.

Richard Hatch Has Passed Away

We’re sad to report that earlier today actor Richard Hatch passed away in his Santa Clarita home. Hatch had been battling pancreatic cancer for some time.

Hatch is best known to fans for his performances as Apollo on the original 1978 Battlestar Galactica and Tom Zarek on the 2004 Syfy remake of the series. He also made regular convention appearances (and prior to Syfy’s remake attempted to revive Galactica on multiple occasions).

Richard Hatch was 71 years old.
