Re: For those who have cowls (or those who don't)

Whenever this threat title pops up, I think of AC/DC:

For those about to cowl, we salute you! (plays air guitar furiously)

And, actually, after hearing Scott's terrific stories of being at conventions with Adam, I do salute you all!

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #164: "The Curse of Tut" scripts: Rondeau and Buono improve on Dennis and Barret

[Edited/revised slightly for clarity:] I think it’s important to recognize that “improvisation” in film and TV production rarely refers to a completely spontaneous take—one in which an actor embellishes or changes a line of dialogue or some stage business—that makes it to the final cut of the progr...

Re: VBC - Friday 30th July - Viewing Party and Discussions

Thanks to Ben and Scott for making this possible. It was a whole lot of fun. I actually cracked the code somewhere along the line by accident and figured out what was being shown earlier in the day before it was revealed, yet still showed up. Even for Olga! ;) I only missed one viewing. I was late f...

Re: "Lost/Unaired" episode "Bane's The Name/Greetings Mr Wayne"

I salute the creativity that went into this spoof, and the Batbook episode pages in particular, but I think the script might have been more successful (and fun to write) as a "Citizen Bane" riff on Welles's work, rather than a parody/critique of The Dark Knight Rises. Agreed. That to me i...

Donovan was on the show four weeks later. Depending upon what he was performing, I might have been OK with Kathy pulling the lever on the trap door at that point.

Re: Joker repurposed Surfing Experience And Ability Transferometer--Evidence Here!

You startled me...with a genuinely enjoyable performance from KK! :lol: Well-played, Ben! :) There are a few studio songs of Kathy Kersh's available on YouTube if anyone wants to check them out. I also should 'note' that two other Bat-henchwomen for whom singing was more their main livelihood at th...

Joker repurposed Surfing Experience And Ability Transferometer--Evidence Here!

When robinboyblunderer noted that Batman could have used Catwoman's Voice Eraser to neutralize The Siren, I did some detective work of my own. It turns out that The Joker, that diabolical Clown Prince of Crime, also did some repurposing. I discovered that he apparently found another use for his Surf...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #164: "The Curse of Tut" scripts: Rondeau and Buono improve on Dennis and Barret

No, no hard feelings, Dan E.! :D Or to Tim and Paul, for that matter. I just want to get at the truth. I admit I sometimes come on like the proverbial bull in the china shop while doing so, however. And I will say this--looking at the aired show, and the 'You're a twit' line, it could've been an ad-...

Re: How the Dynamic Duo could've defeated Siren

I don't know if this has ever been suggested before and I know the show had few nods to continuity but...I think it would've been neat if Batman had used an adapted form of Catwoman's Voice-Stealing Device to render Siren powerless. cheers Interesting idea. I don't know whether to say good idea or ...

Re: Adam in "Cartoon Lost & Found"

Great find! Yeah, Nick At Nite, when it began, was much more of a period piece than what it became. And much better, IMO.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #163: "Phantom Pharaoh" Reveals Semplian Batman

Fun comparison, sirs, of the script to the aired version. Some observations: Yes, just how does Tut fill out his criminal gang each time? Especially the women fanning him? Holy bad part-time job! I guess his last season 2 arc was the only glimpse we got into seeing how he got his henchmen, although ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #164: "The Curse of Tut" scripts: Rondeau and Buono improve on Dennis and Barret

Considering that his changes are generally short quips in place of the intended, scripted dialogue, I can't imagine that there was much extra effort on set. I'm not trying to make the moderators angry, and any actors, pro or amateur, on the board are welcome to jump in, but I think any working acto...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #164: "The Curse of Tut" scripts: Rondeau and Buono improve on Dennis and Barret

Best episode intro to date! Nicely edited, Tim. It just occurred to me that Semple likely still was in Spain so he wasn't on set. Oops, my bad. So, a more likely scenario is that Buono and Horwitz were discussing potential script tweaks together. They had a prior working relationship. Remember, as ...

I can't believe there is just one more to go.
