The Dark Knight Rises
It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.

The Dark Knight Trilogy
Includes Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises.

Eastbound and Down (Season 3)
Eastbound & Down follows deluded, burned-out, former major-league pitcher named Kenny Powers, who after fleeing his hometown in North Carolina spent a soul-searching season 2 in Mexico as “La Flama Blanca” – and ended up returning to the States a changed man. Or is he? Picking up a year after Season 2 ends, the still-audacious Kenny brings his “f*#ked up behavior” to Myrtle Beach, SC – a tourist destination filled with fireworks stores, mini-golf and underage boozing – and somehow resurrects his baseball career as the closer for the minor-league Myrtle Beach Mermen. Even as he postures himself as the King of Myrtle Beach, Kenny struggles to come to terms with growing older, both in his personal life, and professionally with the arrival of up-and-comers (including a Russian pitcher) who challenge him in the league. Along the way, he befriends a veteran catcher named Shane (Jason Sudeikis of Saturday Night Live), a kindred spirit who ends up teaching Kenny a cautionary lesson about overindulgence.
