Re: 60's vs. 90's films

I think many of you have hit the nail on the head. The need to introduce the origins of the psychologically complex versions of the villains to movie audiences in the 90s (plus origins for Robin and Batgirl) made these movies wall to wall claustrophobic. With the exception of Batgirl in 1967, origin...

Homemade Movies Batman theme (Links)

Thanks to tomztoyz' Batblog, I came across this hilarious salute to the opening Batman credit sequence. I loved the video made with the Mattel action figures, but this has a great charm to it, too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaizI9eBxp4#t=47 While this may seen like a low-rent homage, I love the...

Re: The ME-TV BATMAN Episode Discussion Thread

I noticed that the music played during the chase scene to the BatCave was recycled from the pilot. Evidently, it did not bother anyone that the Riddler's motif was being played while the Joker was on-camera. Also, the continuity police were asleep as Bruce Wayne never acknowledges Mr. Whiteface as t...

Re: Batman from comic book to TV

Honestly, I had no idea when I suggested a collection above, but look what DC is publishing in January (from their solicitations on newsarama.com): BATMAN ‘66: THE TV STORIES TP Written by BILL FINGER, GARDNER FOX, JOHN BROOME and others Art by BOB KANE, DICK SPRANG, SHELDON MOLDOFF, CARMINE INFANTI...

Re: Batman from comic book to TV

With a comic book adapting the show in publication, it would be a great time for DC to collect these stories in a trade paperback utilizing the Batman 66 logo. They tried a similar project when Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman was running in the 90s.

Re: The ME-TV BATMAN Episode Discussion Thread

I like the Zodiac Crimes, but I thought it was padded in places. Since it had two writers, I wonder if maybe it started out as a two-part Joker story and was padded out into three parts to accommodate Penguin, especially since he isn’t in the second episode. Does anyone know? I’m sure the plot poin...

Re: Surf's Up Episode

And what is meant by "undine?" John Undine was in reference to the character so named and played by the lovely Sivi Aberg, who was making her second appearance as a villain's moll. She had previously been one of Chandell/Harry's girls in the Liberace episodes. Skip Ward, who played one of...

Re: Most fun batfight?

Lately, I've been having fun pausing my recorded episodes and noticing how some of the fight scenes included more henchmen than we saw in the rest of the episode. The cuts are so quick, compounded by the added special effects, that it was unnoticable to me when I watched the shows growing up. As for...

Re: Louie's Lethal Lilac Time: Worst Episode of the Series?

Just watched "Louie's Lethal Lilac Time" and I have to say that it gets my vote for the worst episode of the series. Ellis St. Joseph commented on the producers' commitment to Catwoman in the second season and not knowing how to use her, and I wonder if they were in a similar situation wi...
