Re: A possible fourth season of Batman.

I liked your idea for 'the sea hag', but there would've been copyright issues in 1969, and maybe even now with 'King Features' which owns Popeye. She could be 'the sea witch' or 'the sea serpent'. I think a piece of dream casting would be Julia Adams, well remembered for 'The Creature from the Black...

Re: A possible fourth season of Batman.

Excellent discussion.Any more suggestions regarding a possible fourth season of Batman? The tone would need to be more serious. NBC wanted Batman as a compliment to their Tarzan series, so obviously it would've been in the shows best interest to go back to the pseudo-seriousness of the 1966 pilot. ...

Re: A possible fourth season of Batman.

Disagree for two reasons, 1. the fact that Selina never appeared in the show. Newmar was Catwoman 24/7/365 with no alter ego, so the duality of Bruce/Bats and Selina/CW already wasn't there. Plus, the way it was written, it came off more as a junior-high crush than a true 'romance.' I much preferre...

Re: A possible fourth season of Batman.

If there's a '66 fan-fiction site (is there?) you should write it up. Elmrgraham's post reminded me that you asked this. I wondered the same thing about a '66 fan-fiction site when I first found this message board. The fics seem to only be scattered throughout the posts. I don't know of them being ...

Re: Corpse of the year and Dan Scully.

That's fantastic! Simcox was a good actor & interesting fellow. He might've made a fabulous Green Hornet himself. He looked great in the mask. :) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0799410/bio Tom Simcox studied meditation alongside The Beatles at Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram in India. There's a reference...

Re: A possible fourth season of Batman.

I'd like to have seen Dr. Cassandra make a return as a more serious threat in a fourth season, and possible Zelda the Great. THE THORN is a nice idea. More edgy than most of the 3rd season threats. Maybe Tisha Sterling from the the "Ma Parker" episode who was an up & coming starlet at the time could...

Re: Would you have been a Bat-fan if the series had never ai

Almost impossible to say. Most people that "yes" are probably wrong, because prior to the series Bat-Man was probably equal in popularity to The Martian Manhunter, at least by the early 60's. The Batman comic was in danger of being cancelled, and possibly Detective Comics would have begun using othe...

Re: False Face: the creepiest villain

What's creepy about False Face is that the mask is his "true" face. Even at the end, when Batman has deduced his final disguise, there is no dramatic removal of the False Face mask. It's as if Batman himself accepts what is false as true. The comic book universe should pick this villain up and rest...

Re: Network promo reel has a line I don't remember in the pi

You're right! I've seen the pilot uncut and "I'm too shaky" isn't in there. Good eye. It actually looks & sounds VERY different than the aired version. The music & effects hadn't been added.

98, that's wonderful! Great actor. I'll have to watch 'The Misfits' in his honor.

Re: Biggest "Star" When Playing A Villain

Tallulah Bankhead and Otto Preminger second. They had both been HUGE at one time. I'd say Cliff Robertson had the biggest ongoing career at the time of Batman.
