Jul 7, 2014

Back in January, a rumor was started by Conan O'Brien on Twitter that the 1966 Batman TV series, in all it's colorful, campy glory, was going to be released! At that news, RevNews host Gary Mitchel put out the Podcast Signal, and gathered Batfans Michael Gordon and Matt Cowger to discuss this groundbreaking series.

And now that the news is official, and we have a release date, this episode of RevNews has escaped into Gotham to spill all the secrets of the Dynamic Duo! Listen in as our Panel of Prodigious Podcasters discuss the history of the show; its iconic status; what took so long for it to be released; the thorny issues of creator/image rights & the "WKRP" Problem; the Curse of Hi-Def; the importance of Google Safe Search; what they hope will be on the discs; the reactions to the show from fans & in comics; the link between grandmothers & Batman; "Serious" Batman vs "Campy" Batman; and the Lone Ranger/Green Hornet/Batman connection. Our theme music this episode is "20 Minutes of Oxygen" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets courtesy of Divine Industries.Inc.
