The web series was created back in 2009!!
If you haven't watched Joker Blogs by now on YouTube then I feel bad for you. Just when you thought no one else could pull off the same performance as Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight meet, Scott McClure.
McClure makes acting as Joker easy and none of the cast members are professional actors!
Synopsis: The Joker Blogs picks up after the end of The Dark Knight. The Joker–now known as “Patient 4479″–has been taken to Arkham Asylum, where he begins therapy sessions with Dr. Harleen Quinzel and Hugo Strange. Unfortunately, as the sessions continue, the two begin to take an unhealthy interest in each other, it becomes decidedly sicker from the Joker’s side.
What succeeds is an unforgiving campaign against Dr. Quinzel, the entire Arkham Asylum staff that requires both mental and physical torment from the Joker. As the story goes on, it becomes apparent that lust and revenge aren’t the only objectives of the Joker’s complex scheme..he is one complex clown.
If you desire to see a well-made web series that's faithful to the comics and movies, then The Joker Blogs is for you! Scott McClure manages to capture the voice and the beautiful mannerisms of Ledger’s performance, but takes it in a slightly but good direction. McClure takes a great deal of enthusiasm and allegiance that makes you laugh out loud at a speedy, witty joke, then wince at the raw horror he manages to pluck away from underneath his arms.
(The web series includes fantastic dialogue)
The rest of the cast does an awesome job, just like Christian Bale and the other actors in Dark Knight, the Joker’s performance had a tendency to outshine their own acting sometimes. Kira Westberg plays the beautiful Harleen Quinzel and Steven Molony as Jeremiah Arkham plays the straight man to the Joker’s dangerous, dark wit, while also starting out close to tragic character development by their constant contact with him. Dr. Quinzel, Jeremiah Arkham and the rest of the staff are slowly pushed into a spiral of despair by the Joker's antics.
Did I mention Lex Luthor is in it?
Conclusion: You’ll laugh your ass off, you'll scream, you’ll cringe, you'll be wanting more and you'll never get bored, THIS NEEDS TO BE ON TV!
Without further ado, I present to you The Joker Blogs - Series 1!
