Re: Did the '66 movie need an A-list star?

Interesting topic. It was my understanding that the movie served as a pilot to sell the TV show overseas. Others will know the timing better than me to know if this is correct, or just another rumor. For me, it's all in the writing. I thought the story concept was far better than the final script. T...

Re: Orlando Science Center opens superhero exhibit with '66 Batcave!

I *think* this is the same half Batmobile that was on display in Hawaii recently. It looks like a completely different backdrop in Orlando. Pretty cool!

Re: Meeting a board member IRL

I'm glad you met Scott, Mike! And I totally agree with your assessment--warm, friendly, and kind. I think you'll find most of the board members to be that way because there is an instant camaraderie. Congrats to both of you. Woot!
