Re: Secondary Villains

I agree on Season Three - love it! And yes, Fred was superb.

Anna Gram definitely had some spunk and didn't fall in love with Batman. She'd have made a great villain.

Re: CLIFFHANGER!

Lots of great ones: Catwoman frying Batman and Robin on the rooftop. The sexual overtones were strong on this one. Penguin catapulting the Dynamic Duo across town with a camera strapped to them, watching as it happens. Zelda blindfolding Aunt Harriet and dangling her above a cauldron. I'm sure they ...

Re: Streaming service to stream 66Batman

It's the modern method of consuming music, television, movies. Personally I'm glad to have the DVD's. Been through some hurricanes in which there was no internet connection for a month afterward. I even suggested in the Bat-music thread that instead of a CD, perhaps the streaming route would be bett...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

I'm surprised that stereotypes like this are still common. A bodybuilder can quote Shakespeare just as well as anyone else. Maybe spend some time in your local gym. I think you'll find that many of the most muscular guys and gals are often doctors and lawyers who aren't lacking in the brains depart...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

I wouldn't describe Adam as having a "swimmer's body." Long legs and broad shoulders, sure. He wasn't particularly out of shape and he wasn't fat like the common jokes make him out to be, but he also wasn't "in extremely good physical shape" or "powerfully built" by any means. If anything , I think...

Re: Annoying words

I'm not annoyed by this phrase, just curious, as I hear it used in other shows of the time. It's obviously exited the lexicon, but I always wonder what 'tut tut' is meant to convey. " Tut-tut in British. (pronounced as alveolar clicks; spelling pron ˈtʌtˈtʌt ) exclamation. An exclamation of mild re...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

Bruce Wayne was a millionaire philanthropist in his mid thirties. Even today when one can roid their way to an exaggerated body, it would look odd for someone in Wayne's position. And besides, we'd have to suspend our disbelief even further whenever a villain dressed up a henchman as Batman - or Alf...

Re: What is your favorite episode?

Off the top of my head: The Sport of Penguins/A Horse of Another Color - Penguin buying a horse destined to be turned into glue to enter him in a race, Batman and Robin getting pasted to the Batmobile, lots of good stuff. Penguin is a Girl's Best Friend/Penguin Sets a Trend/Penguin's Disastrous End ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #90: Surf's Up, Joker's Under, and Al's On

Looking forward to checking this out. Before I do, I'll share my random thoughts on this episode, which may agree or disagree with some of your points. I put this episode in the 'One of the best' categories. I'm probably alone at this board in that I'm not a superhero guy, but I love absurdist humor...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #88: Holy hyperbole! It's Burt Ward's book!

While the book does give us some insight into what it was like to go from nothing to superfame to typecast purgatory, is indisuputabily full of inaccuracies and hyperbole -- not to mention much more (in terms of both quantity and cringe-inducing detail) about his sexual conquests and misadventures ...

Re: Bat-upstaging

Great thread topic and I will be interested to see the responses. I, too, never noticed this until I read Ward's book. As mentioned in another recent thread, I took a lot of that book's content with a huge grain of salt. However, when the DVD's came out, I can recall on multiple occasions thinking, ...

Re: OFFICIAL BATMUSIC THREAD ADD TO IT WHEN YOU WILL

Perhaps trying to get this music released on CD is the stumbling block? Unless you are looking for some form of profit for your endeavors, which is of course understandable, rights holders may be apprehensive to work with an outsider. Many new cars and computers are not equipped with CD players. Whe...
