Re: TO THE BATPOLES #150: “The Astrologer”: The Proto-“Zodiac” Script

I always respect your opinion, Dan E., Well there's your problem... You see, when you name a character Venus in a fantasy setting, that name has implications and connotations . It has meaning. And there is some of that in Kandel's original script. His Venus is more like Blaze--she definitely is The...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #150: “The Astrologer”: The Proto-“Zodiac” Script

150 episodes! Wow! I always enjoy these "script" episodes because of the behind-the-scenes glimpses they give us of how 66 Batman was made. But I'm equally grateful that everyone here reads and comments on the scripts... so that I don't have to. Scripts are just clunky things to read. Thanks, everyo...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #149: Alan Napier: "Not Just Batman's Butler"

HAPPY NEW YEAR to Tim & Paul and all my favorite commentators here on the ASAK 66 Batman Message Board! I hope everyone had a great holiday season! I went into this podcast knowing absolutely nothing about Alan Napier's life outside of the '66 Batman series. His list of acting credits is incredible....

Wonder Woman's smile sells it for me. Looks like it was a lot of fun.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #145: “Batman: The Movie”: What is “the director’s input”?

Great show, guys. And fantastic post, too, Ben Bentley. You are both all-seeing and all-knowing. As I wrap up your second take on Martinson and his direction of the movie, I'm reflecting on Hich C's hypothetical rewrite of the movie from last time. And so on a similar topic, I'll bring up an alterna...

I agree with Dan (again, great to have you back, sir)... https://media.giphy.com/media/ASd0Ukj0y3qMM/giphy.gif But here comes the contrarian in me. If I had been a consultant at the time trying to maximize the box office, my advice would have been this--scrap the 'multiple villains working together...

Re: Allan Moore's Gone Off - AGAIN

Moore seems to forget that the original Batman comics were nothing like the '66 series. He's essentially using what was a one-off, very divergent adaptation (and ignoring what established the character) lead to his false conclusion. No, I don't think so. He's said that the 66 version is his favorit...

Tim said the magic words. https://media.giphy.com/media/tZDxBieiP8QMr1OrJ2/giphy.gif My tent stays pitched! But you already know that. Brilliant take on the "Bomb" scene, Paul. Triomphe de la campiness. I am most pleased. The bomb scene isn't camp nor camping, but it is some darn good straight humor...

LOVE that Mystery Bat Machine in your profile pic, TP-6597! Zoinks! Kudos to Moore for digging Adam. Kudos to Moore for acknowledging the inherent flaw of 'The Killing Joke."

Re: Allan Moore's Gone Off - AGAIN

Yeah, that's why I drink green tea. No, in all seriousness, I don't think that's the point that Moore is making. Moore argues that Batman has become a dark character because adult fans are unwilling to leave him in their childhood. Writers, as I interpret his comment, have dragged Batman and other c...
