Re: TO THE BATPOLES #142: Fine-Tuning "The Penguin Goes Straight"

Any hint on when (and what) the next script episode will be (he said, fingers crossed)?

Re: DC fandome Batman 66 - Batman Beyond

Yeah, I didn't think it was that funny or clever. They mostly commented on the same tropes everyone else goes on about. Yes, we know Cesar didn't shave his mustache. Yes, Adam's Batman had a "dad bod" in comparison to Batfleck. Yes, Burt Ward is wearing flesh colored tights. It's just like riffing ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #142: Fine-Tuning "The Penguin Goes Straight"

Sirs, thanks for the shoutouts on my comments. This was an interesting look at how TV scripts are tweaked right up until the final minute. Paul, you made a good point. I misread the room when I said that the ending was a deus ex machina . As you noted, what it really boiled down to was Semple retrof...

Re: Dame Diana Rigg: Avengers, Bond and Game of Thrones actress dies at 82

Diana Rigg truly was a trendsetter. What she brought to the role of Emma Peel was even more than what was on the page, and the character was well-written to begin with. She was acting right up until the end and she will be missed.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #140 Julie and Eartha: Two Cat-egories of Catwoman

It was a fun discussion. Your admiration for Julie's take on the character certainly came shining through. I will say this--I think Newmar''s performance in her season 1 arc is top 5 in series history. The mystery, the evilness, the villainy, the sensuality--it's all there. Of course, I don't feel t...

Re: SCRIPT: The Penguin Goes Straight

Honestly, I think Semple was running on fumes by Feb. '66. Not that I would not have been after so many months of hard work, plus writing the movie on the side. The script is terrific, but kind of peters out, imo, in the last act, and the Semplian ideal is lost in the Borschtian tag. It feels strang...

Re: SCRIPT: The Penguin Goes Straight

I'll admit, sirs, as I sit here and wait (not-so) patiently for your Astrologer script episode, I am intrigued as to what your 'angle' might be for selecting this arc. I have no desire to rewatch this arc to spot the differences, quite frankly. It is kind of difficult to watch. Giving a clueless idi...

Re: DC fandome Batman 66

A bad Mystery Science Theater ripoff.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #137: Yvonne Craig: We get a kick out of this memoir

Enter "Hound Dog," "Devil In Disguise," and ... "A Big Hunk of Love"? Burning Love was the name of the song, to be fair, as in 'I'm just a hunk, a hunk of burning love.' 'Quoting song titles accurately is essential to good crimefighting, old chum.' 'Gosh yes, Batman. Holy Casey Kasem!' They are two...

Henchman: 'Elvis, we put Batman and Robin in the deathtrap.'

Honestly trying to improve Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine seems like a job for Sissyphus; and I'm guessing he'd rather stick to the boulder.
At least I didn't suggest re-titling it Dr. Goldfoot and The Siren Machine
But you know you wanted to! :lol:
Well, this is true!

As for Gaston Glass, maybe he was the brother of Jan Brady's boyfriend, George Glass.
