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

Before I dive into the podcast, I looked over Semple's memo and honestly I can't disagree with the bulk of his criticisms because I do find that they echo a lot of the things I found wrong with the script in terms of execution (the pointless red herrings at the beginning, the absurdity of Alfred as...

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

http://deconstructingcomics.com/Batpoles/feettothefire.jpg In 1965, as production of Batman was starting to get rolling, Lorenzo Semple was having some difficulties in getting across to writers his vision for the show. Leonard Stadd's "The Secret of the Impossible Crimes," a script that Semple reje...

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 ...

You mentioned The Catwoman episode being preempted. It was interrupted several times in the east and completely prempted in the west. Here is the text of an article from UPI describing peoples anger:

Thanks. Wow, so the whole country missed at least some of it.

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

I'd like to reiterate that once I got past the obvious missteps by the scripter, I thought the arc had a workable plot with decent motivations for Joker, certainly better than much of the silliness of seasons 2 and 3. Put it this way--I am at a loss to understand why this one was tossed and the Jay...

Re: Courtroom scenes and other bat-law questions

I think that'll be enough for our episode, but if you think of any other really obvious, pressing ones, let us know! Thanks very much!

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #107: Archie Meets Batman, We Meet a Listener

Judging by the lack of comments, it's obvious very few people on this board read this crossover. On the whole, I've been disappointed in the '66 comics series because for the most part, they play it safe. They take few chances and make it like comfort food. As Paul and Tim noted, Siren was given li...

Re: Courtroom scenes and other bat-law questions

Do Batman and Robin violate constitutional rights doing Batclimbs spying on villains and breaking into their hideouts., planting tracking devices and bugs. How has what's allowed changed from 1966 to now. I think Miranda decision was about this time. Ooh, yes, I remember we talked on the podcast ab...

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

http://deconstructingcomics.com/Batpoles/Louie2.jpg One of the reasons often given for the quality dropoff in Batman season three has been that, in one-part episodes with so many characters, time is tight. So how to account for Louie's Lethal Lilac Time, a one-parter that seems not to even have eno...

Courtroom scenes and other bat-law questions

At the Bowling Green State University Batman Conference last month, one of the presenters was a lawyer, Jim Dedman from North Carolina, who talked about courtroom-related stories in Batman comics. We're scheduling him to come on TO THE BATPOLES podcast and talk about courtroom-related stuff on the s...

I've fallen so far behind with the show after not realizing that my Podcasts app had stopped auto-updating my various subscriptions. I can't wait to get caught up; with this episode in particular!
I did wonder why we hadn't heard from you lately! Happy listening!

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #108: The William Dozier Fanboy

I'm going to mention this in a future podcast episode, but since it came up, thought I'd go ahead and share. Thanks, Tim and Oscar! Although it is my understanding that LBJ rescinded the pardon after discovering that Dozier had written the words to the Batgirl theme... Haha, yes, that was a jailabl...

And it looks like Oscar meant "possible" rather than "impossible" in the last sentence!
