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

Not much to add the observations about this bottom-scraping episode, other than it was sort of nice to see Bruce and Dick as themselves for the majority of the episode, just to remind audiences that they had lives outside of being the Dynamic Duo. I know Dozier was pinching pennies until they scream...

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

I probably should have said that Dozier in his mind thought he could be as big a producer as Martin or Allen in 66 with all the projects he had at that point as opposed to whether he had a real shot at succeeding because I think you're right that he wasn't going to succeed with his general thinking...

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

The pilot episode "An Echo of Bugles" has a plot that would NEVER get by in today's world of uber-PC. Colton, the drifting ex-Union vet objects when a young punk harasses an old ex-Confederate soldier in a bar by desecrating the *Confederate* battle flag he still carries. Colton sees the Confederat...

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

Another winner, guys. Big thank you to Oscar Lilley for his laboring over the Dozier papers. Facts go such a long way in shattering long-accepted myths, such as Burt Ward being the "big head"/headache of the series (if you believe anything Stanley Ralph Ross ever said on the matter), but the papers ...

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

I wonder what the thinking is behind the '66 Batman crossovers. Clearly one made perfect sense (you can guess which one I'm referring to), but the others remind me of the kind of ideas children throw around, where they have characters having no natural connection to each other (in origin, tone, or a...

Re: RIP Seymour Cassell aka "Cancelled"

Seymour Cassel will be missed. My earliest memory of him was the Green Hornet crossover, but I certainly remember his work with John Cassavetes, as well as significant TV guest spots. Rarely the same kind of performance twice.

Although this Alex Ross painting is several years old, it is being used again for another version of Detective #27:

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #106: The Funny Script Felonies (w/John S. Drew!)

It says something when a podcast about a TV series is more entertaining than the series its covering. I believe Paul said the Joker was acting like a 6-year old, and I guess that's the general belief about season three Joker, who has a range of cartoon villain to whining man-child. In fact, in Joel ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #103: Pop vs Camp: Which is Batman ’66?

Paul: no, I don't think you were browbeating me at all. I will say this: the idea of "interpretation trumps intention" does not hold much water when the creative process usually has at its root a vision and/or message meant to be understood and accepted by the audience. Most works of art are not int...

Re: John Astin appears on the Gilbert Gottfried podcast!

When I was about 10 or so, I started noticing the change of actors. I was always fascinated by the music, so his episode has a special place in my heart what with what I call the anniversary Battheme and the underwater music for the fight scene. Both of which written and performed ONLY for that epi...

Green Hornet are taken from either SciFi or somewhere, I can't recall what channel. Surprised its still up since its obvious that its not official.
Is there a station watermark on the episodes?

Re: Anybody restore a Corgi 267 Batmobile?

http://www.batmobile.free.fr/English/Body/Bodystyles.htm After doing some reading this evening, I discovered they painted the 1st corgis flat black because that’s the way the Batmobile was before the show came out. That leads me to believe that Corgi was on board before the show even started. I als...
