19. Let’s be real here. Buzzfeed is a terrible website. Their content is poorly sourced from other, often much better, websites and watered down for an audience with a poor attention span. Many of their articles barely qualify as writing, with loosely connected sentences that are an excuse to show off a bunch of gifs taken from Tumblr. If you need evidence, check out Buzzfeed Articles Without The Gifs. Honestly, it was somewhat painful putting this list together, and contributing to the eternal endless garbage pile of listicles, knowing that they are indicative of a culture obsessed with consuming content in the laziest way possible, and that this will still get less clicks than an article that is based around a picture of Matthew Broderick. It’s shameful.

  1. Have to give props to Buzzfeed recently though. They’ve really proven themselves to be a lot more than just a listicle site and have been doing some well researched longform pieces.

  2. Question for you Coop, have you ever seen the Gotham Knight Anthology series? If so, your thoughts?

    1. The 2008 straight to DVD Gotham Knight? It’s okay. It’s like most anthologies – there are good parts and bad parts. It’s interesting to see the characters designed in a different style (or, rather, styles, with the different studios and all.)

      I’d say it’s definitely unique, and therefore worth a watch, but there are better DC animated movies.

  3. Thanks for all these great Batman gifs, and yes, Batman is better than Buzzfeed. Although, a lot of things are better than Buzzfeed.

  4. How did I miss this article? Well done Cooper. I don’t get why people go to Buzzfeed in the first place. I had them on my newsfeed for about a week before I got rid of them. So, fucking, much, garbage.
