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

In "He Meets His Match, The Grisly Ghoul," writer Lorenzo Semple Jr. serves up one of his favorite motifs—Batman spreading his cape and throwing a bat shadow against a wall to "terrify" criminals. In this instance, however, the move is undermined by a continuity glitch. It's in a scene at the Woodro...

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

Another instance of impish Batman: When Alfred waylays Joker on the batpole steam lift in Flop Goes the Joker, pinning him to the ceiling of the pole alcove, the distraught crook crows that he can’t breathe. Batman suggests that Alfred “give him some more breathing room,” and sends Joker plummeting ...

Re: What computer is this?

Could the label read "ATOMIC PRESSURE INDICATOR"?

That sign is seen here attached to a different console, but the word length and character count look about right in comparison to the B&W image.

Re: What computer is this?

The BatLabels twitter feed seemed like a good resource for this. I didn't look long enough to confirm whether it ever featured the label @dreddbatfan asked about, but I did find another instance of a label being placed on that machine: With the label mounted topside, it served as the "BAT-MO AND ID...

The bat-signal definitely got more use in the comics (and seemed kind of redundant on the TV show, even though it looked really cool). Here's another instance of the red phone in the comics:

Re: Batman scripts

I have since gotten the Bookworm and Curse of Tut scripts; unfortunately the latter is missing the last 25% or so - it cuts off shortly before the second kidnapping of Bruce/Batman. The Tut episodes are among my favorites, and I'd love to read any draft scripts that turn up. Please let us know if y...

Riddle Me This: Why Is Wally Telling Me Where to Go?

I use the Waze smartphone app all the time in my car to get directions and avoid traffic backups. When I fired it up Monday, it had a new option, to travel with Batman. This allows you to customize the look of your navigation screen (so the Batmobile or the Riddler's ride appears on the scrolling ma...

I have the original Film Score Monthly booklet and liner notes, but I'm away from home until Saturday. I'll be happy to scan the booklet for you when I get home, if no one else can before then.

Re: SCRIPT: The Penguin Goes Straight

I did rewatch the episodes. and what I was struck with was how closely they adhere to the script. (The biggest deviation from the earlier drafts, besides removal of the reference to the other archcriminals that Gothosmansion mentioned) is a diminished role for Reggie Rich, the millionaire Pengy "res...

Complete series on iTunes for $19.99

Not sure how long it will last, but this is a steal.

Check it out here.

I have the Blu-Rays, but lost track of the VUDU streaming/download codes. As an Apple guy, this was a no-brainer for me.

I dont know if your crafty but I've made some using shrink paper that you send through a printer and then modge podge dimension on top for the enamel look.. They look great. I glue a pin on back or a magnet. They are fun to do.
I have my crafty moments, so maybe I'll give this a try. Thanks!
