Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #93: The Tale of “The Cat’s Tale”

Quality content as always, Young Bros. In reply to Paul's statement about Season 3 being more campy than earlier seasons - I feel like we've been here before (but it's very possible I imagined it). Either way, it's my opinion (or at least an opinion that I may or may not have stolen from Paul and am...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

Respectfully, are those real? Look at it. Now that you mention it, the shot of Affleck training does look off. I haven't seen the movie, but just going on that image, it looks a little weird.

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

Adam West is the only actor to date to match Batman's 6'2 height in the comics. Also, while it was a bit hard to tell when in the costume, West was well built as well, even more so than his comic counterpart at the time. His physique actually matched that of the Bronze Age Batman, and he actually r...

Yet another well-constructed podcast. Paul did a nice job of drilling his points home to the listener.
Bing! Pow! Boom! Ping! :D

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

This is a stupid argument. But hey, I had it with fanboy fat guys in ponytails & army jackets in comic shops way back in 1989 when pipe-cleaner armed Michael Keaton WAS their Batman, and am just as happy to have it now with remnants of those same guys who have apparently reached portly, giggly midd...

I really dig these Batmania episodes. Maybe once you've finished Season 3 you can return to this topic. ;)

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

But it's really more the sound mind/sound body mantra. Most bodybuilders spend all their time in the gym, at the detriment of developing other parts of themselves. So an overly muscular man who is also tremendously smart is unusual. I'm surprised that stereotypes like this are still common. A bodyb...

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: 4th Season Smoking Gun?

https://media.giphy.com/media/3orieUe6ejxSFxYCXe/giphy.gif An interesting observation, but I wouldn't call that a "smoking gun" myself. Bob Furmanek's thread basically busted the myth as far as I'm concerned. Maybe Yvonne Craig believed it, maybe she doubted it, makes no real difference to whether ...
