Re: TO THE BATPOLES #127: It’s a “Challenge” Just to Sit Through “Legends”

Also, as to why the show was put into production, it probably was because Superman The Movie was released in December of 1978. Legends was probably put into production by DC and TV execs hoping to cash in on the hype and 'ride the wave' surrounding that release, using their other heroes. The timing ...

Re: Batman Meets Godzilla Comic update

I also see you’re going to be on Tim and Paul’s next episode. Three (four?) of my favorite things-Goji, Batman, and Tim and Paul!

Re: Batman Meets Godzilla Comic update

Same here. Saw the post about the shirts on Twitter after you closed it earlier today, would have loved to have had one...Batman doing the Shie dance and Goji doing the Batusi is hilarious! But I'll keep retweeting you on Twitter anyway :)

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #127: It’s a “Challenge” Just to Sit Through “Legends”

Tim and Paul, you really should look into the Toei Spider-Man series from the 70's. Grounded in traditional tokusatsu, the greatest superhero show ever done (well, featuring DC/Marvel characters at least). The stuntman alone that played Spider-Man took incredible risks and the action is amazing.

Re: Courtroom scenes and other bat-law questions

I think these are the same folks that did a seminar about the legal ramifications of kaiju and the differing liabilities resulting from their actions and such (like Carl Denham's liability for bringing King Kong to New York, or if insurance policies would cover damage from kaiju attacks). An excelle...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #109: Louie the Lilac baffles, Bat-conference informs

One of my favorite episodes, mostly due to Nobu Atsumi's scientist character Lotus. I'm kind of surprised she merited little more than a name drop in the podcast; she's one of the few molls (if she was indeed a moll and not a partner) that actually was integral to the main baddie's plan and not just...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #105: Fifty Ways to Wreck the Joker

Water does indeed begin to expand at lower temperatures, at about 4 C, and when it freezes at 0 C expands significantly. One of the few forms of matter exhibiting this behavior. Short reason, because water is a network-forming matter and the bonds between its hydrogen atoms become more pronounced at...

Re: Can anybody identify this switch?

Gotham City Science is a lot like Toho Science (and science in most pop culture ;) ). Yes indeed. I've sometimes wondered what an actual 12,000 dB pulse would be like . If it were possible, it'd certainly do much more than flush out Bookworm and his twisty goons. :) It would probably destroy the un...

Re: Can anybody identify this switch?

Still quite a jolt, since an electric chair generates about 2000 volts. Since spiders use electricity to fly, maybe those giant spiders just needed a really big dose to kill them. Gotham City Science is a lot like Toho Science (and science in most pop culture ;) ).

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #099: The Kitt-y Cat Shows her Claws

Messrs Tim and Paul, if you want to know what the two words Catwoman spoke that you could not make out, they would likely show up on the subtitles. I always watch with the subtitles on since my English comprehension is not always the best. I would listen for you but my BR's are back in the US.

Re: Script: THE SILENT FILM CAPERS, by Dick Carr

Mr. Tim (bat-rss), I think it likely that they were referencing the character of Bo Peep from the 1934 Laurel and Hardy comedy, Babes in Toyland, even though it was not a silent film. Featuring Laurel and Hardy would have matched up with the opening Chaplin scene had they wished to go the re-enactme...

Re: Joker Movie Reveal

Looks scary, creepy and cool! Although it looks like they are doing an origin story and the Joker is one of the few characters better off without one.

Godzilla Visits The Batcave

Looks like Godzilla has entered the Batcave as he calls the military on the Batphone in the first Trendmasters toy commercial in this video. Must have been looking to absorb the radiation in the atomic pile :)

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #92: BATMANIA pt 2: Is nothing impossible?

One thing that Tim and Paul should seek out is the Adventures of Jerry Lewis comic #97. It is contemporary to the TV show (November 1966) and might be the best pop-culture examination of the real-life Batmania that hit the US in 1966-in my opinion, way better than the Mad magazine parody (although t...
