Re: TO THE BATPOLES #111: "The Wrong Earth" and "The Batman Radio Show"

If I had recorded my youthful Batman adventures on tape instead of running around in the yard with a towel on or playing with my Megos, I might be a podcaster today. I'm probably glad that didn't happen because I don't think there would be too big an audience for Gotham City Hillbillies. I enjoyed t...

Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

I love that Corgi Batmobile. Here is my latest pickup. I only recently discovered this. It is a promotional comic from a Canadian Department store that was supposedly only available in Canada. It is ostensively to promote literacy. Honestly, it was goofy but was more entertaining than it should be. ...

Re: Other Great 60s Shows...

Danger Island, yes! Part of the Banana Splits Adventure hour! It may be interesting to point out that the Superman director, Richard Donner directed those episodes and that Jan Michael Vincent got his start on that series. And yes, Y.O. I am humming the Banana Splits theme as I write, not having he...

Re: Happy birthday to The Siren

Happy belated birthday. Amazing the career resurgence she had in the 1980s. She guest starred on a lot of my favorite 60s shows, Star Trek (one of the best episodes), Man from U.N.C.L.E. (one of the few decent 3rd season episodes) and, of course, Batman. She was always a much better actress than she...

Re: Other Great 60s Shows...

I love TV from the sixties! I can’t really put my finger on it, but something about the shows from that era just make me so happy! Try no political correctness. Fun and enjoyment actually were still allowed. Exactly. Probably why my favorite decade for TV was the 60s, even though I wasn't born unti...

Re: Twilight actor may be next screen Batman

I don't want it to fail. I just have my doubts about him. Batman is my favorite fictional character, so I want to be able to enjoy any iteration of him. I mentioned this on another board, but he may surprise me. The example I used there, and I'll use here, is the 70s Legend of Lizzie Borden movie. B...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #110: "The Impossible Crimes": Semple holds Stadd’s Feet to the Fire

The two U.N.C.L.E. scripts that Stadd received a solo credit on had some mis-direction to them...one of them a good bit. The misdirection was what made it such a great episode. In fact, the beginning seems to have nothing to do with the rest of the episode, but it ties back together in the end. I gu...

That is cool to see. Thanks for sharing. I can't believe that DC didn't sue them.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #109: Louie the Lilac baffles, Bat-conference informs

A fun episode as always gentlemen. I'm glad to hear that there was a reasonable smattering of '66 content at the BGU Batman Conference. This is definitely an event I would have loved to have attended or even potentially participated in but unfortunately it just wasn't feasible in terms of timing a ...

Twilight actor may be next screen Batman

Let's hope since this isn't a "done deal" it doesn't get to be one and this falls through. I hate to be "that guy" and, in most cases, think everyone should be given a chance...This time, I think I'm going to have to be "that guy." https://variety.com/2019/film/news/robert-pattinson-batman-matt-reev...

Re: The Mongrel aka the Jokermobile aka the Elvis-mobile

Since the video mentioned the Mongrel was only on loan to Presley Motors, I wonder if its permanent "home" displays it as The Jokermobile and uses the head. As huge of an Elvis fan as I am, Easy Come, Easy Go wasn't exactly one of the high-points of Elvis's career. I think the car probably is more f...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #109: Louie the Lilac baffles, Bat-conference informs

In the past, I think I considered this the better of the two Louie the Lilac episodes, which I know is akin to saying to was the better of the two times an anvil was dropped on my head. Until listening to the podcast, I didn't realize how plotless it really was. I hope I don't get in trouble for say...

Re: Script: THE SECRET OF THE IMPOSSIBLE CRIMES, by Leonard Stadd

Thanks for sharing. I always enjoy the scripts but was particularly intrigued to read this one. Leonard Stadd wrote two very solid fourth season episodes of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., including one, The Maze Affair, that is one of my favorite episodes of that entire series. Prior to those, Stadd had a...

The Mongrel aka the Jokermobile aka the Elvis-mobile

A look at the car when it was at Presley motors. I don't know if it is still there. The video also mentions the car appealing to two fanbases. Personally, I like both Batman and Elvis, but I don't know if there is a lot of overlap.
