Re: Catwoman/Penguin romance in the movie

I don't recall any romantic interludes between Catwoman and Penguin, but it's been a while since I've watched the movie. Each Catwoman actress had unique traits. Julie Newmar's Catwoman was attracted to Batman, but her attraction seemingly always played second fiddle to her criminal pursuits. She di...

Re: Best and Worst Joker Episodes of the Series

Favorite - Zodiac Crimes. Joker strikes a nice balance between his overly menacing demeanor early on, and his overly cartoonish vibe later. His chemistry/competition with Penguin also works. Incidentally, this may be my favorite Penguin appearance also. All his put-downs directed at Robin are great!...

Re: MERRY CHRISTMAS

Merry Christmas!

I've been watching Christmas episodes of favorite old shows - Green Acres, Beverly Hillbillies, Brady Bunch, Partridge Family, Jeffersons, Married With Children, etc.

But all we have for Batman is a brief cameo by Santa Claus when the Dynamic Duo are climbing a building! ;)

Re: Kathy Kersh and Casey Stengel in vintage beer ad

Wow, I wouldn't have even recognized her with dark hair.

She was blond on the Beverly Hillbillies, too.

Re: A great Christmas video with Kenny G. and the Amazing Burgess Meredith

I've had Kenny G's "Miracles the Holiday Album" with this track playing all month.

I know he receives flak, but this album, like his others, sold millions.

Re: Things you didn't notice or remember until seeing the DVDs

I noticed this watching a different DVD - It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. I mistakenly thought Andy from Come Back, Shame was Christopher Shea, who voiced Linus in the early Peanuts specials. He would've been around the right age and the voice sounded the same. And according to his bio, he wa...

Re: Michael Greene (Matches) RIP

Thanks for sharing. That's one of my favorites arcs in the series. Not too many are left that were a part of Batman '66, sadly.

Re: Wow! Unseen Adam West Interview 1966

Tremendous find!

That's some excellent footage of Adam climbing the giant umbrella.

He even seems somewhat in character for the interview. Then again in that costume, it'd be hard not to be. ;)

Re: VBC - Friday 26th June - Viewing party and discussions

An Egg Grows in Gotham. I had a blast being part of it, so thanks for inviting me, Ben! I was on my Kindle as I had worked earlier in the day on my PC via Skype. So I wanted to get out of my work environment. I found out later on my Kindle was doing updates or something and somehow my mic kept getti...

Re: Thoughts/Ideas particularly about the third season and what could have been.

There is certainly absurdity and at times lazy writing in the first season of Batman. But the delivery was such that it felt as if the actors weren't quite in on the joke. But by the third season, this wasn't as much the case. As such, I find most of the third season great comedy, which was likely ...

Re: Thoughts/Ideas particularly about the third season and what could have been.

Being perhaps an oddball here I'll give my Third Season perspective. My Batman fandom begins and ends with the '66 series. I've never bought a comic book in my life, other than the Kiss comic when I was a kid. And I only bought that because it was made with blood from the band members mixed in the i...

Thanks!

Love those episodes, too.

In fact, one of my favorite lines is in the 2nd part, when Riddler can't find the sarcophagus.

"Gee, boss. I don't even know what an esophagus looks like." ;)

Re: Holy viewing party! VBC - Sunday 10th May

Great idea! I have a family gathering at my sister's for Mother's Day (socially distanced, of course) that conflicts. Hopefully one of my favorite episodes isn't selected, and I can catch the next episode viewing. No problems at all! We'll be glad to have you next time! Thanks! I'm curious what epi...

Re: Next VBC: Sunday 19th April

I'm happy for you guys that this is doing so well. I was able to briefly pop in last Saturday, but unfortunately didn't have as much time as I expected (the grocery store texted sooner than I anticipated that my order was ready for pick-up). I'll be free around 4:30 Central this Sunday, so if it's ...
