News broke on the front page yesterday...

Why is no one talking about it yet?

All I have to say is:

"Holy plastic discs, Batman! It's about damn time!"

hmmm... Surprised that it's being released by WB... If that's the case, Fox must have got the product licensing deals or WB just paid them a crap-load of money for everything...

Better late than never. I'm sure Adam West Batman fans who already have bootlegs will still be willing to upgrade to Blu-ray. It's great that parents will now get to share such a fun family show with their kids.

The thing that excited me most about the Batman 66 toyline announcement was that I knew it meant this wouldn't be far behind. I haven't seen this show in years. I hope it's as funny/purposefully lame as I remembered it was.

I'm hoping for a West/Ward commentary track on every episode after the riot they were on the film's track.

It would be really nice if they had commentary with some of the remaining cast that are alive. I've been discussing the cultural significance to members who are clearly younger than me and a few others on another board. Who think because it didn't take itself seriously or wasn't in wide syndication through the years it isn't relevant. I'm looking forward to this and hope it isn't an insane amount.

*Sigh* I just made the mistake of seeing who's signing autographs and saw that Lee Merriweather will be there and I won't :cry:

I'm probably in the minority on this one but I liked Lee Merriweather better as Catwoman than Julie Newmar. She was more attractive back then for sure. Ralph is a Huge fan of the show, so hes living the dream. Should be a fun time all around in San Diego .

No comments since July?...

I've been slowly going through the discs (so far only the special features and the first disc) and am amazed at how much I'd forgotten considering I watched the show every day for years. Was also surprised seeing how the series series influenced things in later versions, even the super-serious Nolan films aren't exempt. For example, the Joker mimes to a recording from Pagliacci while wearing a rubber clown mask which is far too similar to the one worn by Heath Ledger during The Dark Knight's bank robbery scene to be a coincidence. George Sander's Mr. Freeze had to have been the inspiration for Schwarzenegger's performance, even the plot point of stealing diamonds seems to have come from there.

I'd also been under the impression that Ridder's suit had been requested by Gorshin because the other villains had suits while he had the leotard. Not sure about if that story is true or not anymore considering the first episode filmed was a Riddler episode and the first time we see him he's in the suit.

Well I just finished the series last week, and although I know it was the time period and a farce, but the way they treat women on the show is pretty much worse than anything mad men ever did.

Another thing I did not forget is how painful the Chandel episodes were, just as bad now as then.

Overall it was a trip down memory lane, but honestly I don't think I could sit through them all again.

Somethings I sort of forgot, how sexy Julie Newmar really was, how often they put yvonne into tight sweaters, the macking that bruce does on barbara, the amount of people you can knock out with a cardboard box, that Burgess Merideth was really good as the penguin, and although I still think Romero is the best live action Joker, I think King Tut is really my favorite villain from the show, many of his offhanded comments are great.
