Podcast: Purrrrrfect! Julie Newmar's first appearance as Catwoman

In the latest episode of TO THE BATPOLES, we discuss the first appearance of Catwoman -- lovely Julie Newmar -- on Batman ‘66! At last the show gives us a strong female character -- but what do we mean by that, exactly? Also, how lines that strike adults as "what a square Batman is" jokes ...

New Podcast episode: False Face!

False Face! Is this arc of Batman ‘66 one of the show’s best, or “a bomb”? (who would think such a thing?) On the latest “To the Batpoles!” podcast, Tim and Paul discuss Malachi Throne’s, er… appearance on the show. You couldn’t tell who it was, but who could have done it better? http://tothebatpole...

Looks good enough to fight crime in! Is that the Batphone I hear?

Re: The impact never ceases to amaze me

They've even got the show's overseriousness schtick down! Nice.

Re: "The Joker Goes to School"

Any other observations about this story? I'm sure we didn't say everything there is to say about it!

Re: LA Times Reprints Fun Yvonne Craig Article from 1967

Can you imagine the flames that would rain down on a writer who called his female interview subject "luscious" today? And got her measurements? haha Fun read!

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

Yes, I had originally thought about having Jeff Parker on, but Paul and I have been keeping up on the bi-weekly schedule much better than I had expected -- so much so that I would consider going weekly if I weren't already doing two *other* weekly podcasts! And I did have Parker on my Deconstructing...

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

Lord Death Man, glad you're enjoying them! Yeah, the non-episode review episodes are their own kind of fun. If you have any ideas for topics, let us know! And thanks all for casting ideas. One person elsewhere pointed to a rumor that Clint Eastwood's name was actually thrown around as a possible Two...

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://dec...

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? http://tothebatpoles.libsyn.com/011-batman-goes-camping http://deconstructingcomics.com/Batpoles/batman-robin...
