Olly is back, and this time we’re scrutinizing the fine details of Adam West’s Batman. We both love the film for what it is, and praise the cast, writing, and set design. We elaborate on the acting careers of the fine cast and crew. And we analyze its influence (I push the connections to Batman Returns, but perhaps too far).
We speculate on the manufacture of batsuits but discreetly do not mention that this batsuit, like Joel Schumacher’s, has nipples (of the 100% natural variety). We note the notable lack of catness of Catwoman and analyze the rooming relationships between the villains. And we think about all the things we should not think about when it comes to dehydrating and rehydrating people.
I’m watching the Netflix version; Olly is watching the Region 1 DVD; and we stay in sync. Start at on the countdown.
