Re: TO THE BATPOLES #142: Fine-Tuning "The Penguin Goes Straight"

I really enjoyed this episode, and in going over all that went into the aired episode, it just hammers home the glaring differences of how the show was intended to be produced as opposed to the often downward direction of episodes from seasons 2nd and almost all of the 3rd season, which (as I've poi...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #140 Julie and Eartha: Two Cat-egories of Catwoman

Newmar gave the role a life it did not have before, adding her own interpretation of what a felonious female super-villain would be. Unlike other actors who were the first to play a comic character, she was not really channeling the source, but playing Catwoman as if she lived in the real world, and...

Re: 1940s serial Gas gun prop

That is excellent work, and a very logical approach to the way the gas gun would appear functional.

Re: DC fandome Batman 66 - Batman Beyond

Any version of filmed Batman can be laughed at; MAD 's original Batman TV satire (#105 from September, 1966) already zeroed in on certain obvious character tendencies or series tropes in MAD 's then-sharp, pull-no-punches manner, but its funny that they (or writer Lou Silverstone) let the show "have...

Re: SCRIPT: The Penguin Goes Straight

The script and produced episode not having many differences is probably a strong an argument for how tight / creatively interested the Greenway team were early on to produce something worthwhile, as opposed to the tail end of the series. It would be interesting to look through a handful of scripts f...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #137: Yvonne Craig: We get a kick out of this memoir

We're left to guess just how intimate Yvonne's "dating" with Elvis was, or whether she backed off from it once she was convinced that Elvis was secretly married. As a participant, it would have been easy for her to clarify that. Instead, what we were left with is the strong impression that she was ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #139: "Batman Meets Godzilla" #2 and the Battle Over the Batmobile

Fascinating show, guys. I'm not sure you need Barris paperwork to get his side of the Batmobile matter, since the responses from Fitzsimons, et al., also serve as a view of what Barris was trying to pull. For all of his well-known ego, Barris really produced some shoddy work, if the car's ignition, ...

Absolutely love this shot! I don't think i've seen this one before, would love to see the full session.
Same here. I love the 1940s style of publicity shot in an era where that was no longer the norm.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #137: Yvonne Craig: We get a kick out of this memoir

Interesting episode, guys. Some fans have complained about the nature of some of the stories in Ward's book, but Craig's book was in extended orbit of that "world" by claiming that she dated Elvis while he was married. Some might say "well, she's just telling the truth" , but the nature of what she ...

Re: Holy New Trading cards Batman!

SketchCardsAndCovers, that's an interesting take on the series. Very appealing. Do you have any intention of taking a deep dive into guest stars from the rest of the series?

Re: TO THE BATPOLES: #136 Freeze/Penguin teamup and Dozier's ten rules

Another winner, guys. For all of the flack Dozier gets from fans, his "Ten rules" memo was largely the right call, especially his asking directors to watch the pilot. If the series held to the suggestions of his memo (including Dozier having to listen to his own advice), we would have a very differe...
