Batman '66 Lost Episode: Who would have played Two-Face

This week on Deconstructing Comics, Paul and I jumped over from our normal "To The Batpoles" perch to discuss "Batman '66: The Lost Episode", a comic based on a Batman '66 treatment by Harlan Ellison that would have introduced Two-Face to the Adam West Batman universe. http://deconstructingcomics.co...

New podcast episode: Batman '66 and "camp"

New podcast episode! What is camp? What makes Batman '66 "campy"? Also: why does calling Batman '66 a "sitcom" set our hair on end? If it's not a sitcom, then what IS it?

Podcast: The Prince of Puzzlers!

Better late than never, last week's episode of our fortnightly bat-podcast! http://deconstructingcomics.com/Batpoles/riddlerandmousey.jpg The Riddler's back! And he's... focused.

George Sanders as Mr. Freeze

Our latest To the Batpoles! podcast is up. We discuss Sanders' performance as Mr. Freeze (somewhat disappointing to one such as Paul, who's seen a lot of his other work). Also: Why did the writers make Batman responsible for Mr. Freeze’s condition? Where else did Shelby Grant and Robert Hogan appear...

Re: Did anybody notice...???

Something's bugging me. In Episode 2 when Molly falls into the nuclear pile in the Batcave, what's Batman's line? I recalled it as "What a way to go-go". Listening to The Batcave podcast from 2 years ago, I heard it quoted the same way. But on the DVD, he says "What a terrible way to go-go." Was thi...

My talk with Wally Wingert

I'm not sure how many of you noticed I mentioned this last week in the "Bat-Podcast" topic, so just in case you missed it: listen to my great talk with noted Bat-fan Wally Wingert! On the show page, I've also got some photos of '60s Wally in his various Bat-suits! Thanks to Wally for providing them!...

Re: Bat-podcast

If there are other Bat-podcasters on this board, I hope they'll get on this thread and maybe we could make it kind of a regular Batcast news feed?

Hi, fellow Bat-fans! Wanted to let you know that my brother and I have started a podcast devoted to the '66 Batman, called "To the Batpoles!" We're analyzing episodes as we watch the recently-released discs of the series, and talking about how the show affected us growing up, and American pop cultur...
