"Case in point – there’s a very obvious bit of editing in “The Enemy Within” that I never, ever noticed.
Which I will now bore you with.
You won’t hurt my feelings if you don’t bother reading the rest of…"
"When the Batman TV show aired I was 17 1/2, so Julie Newmar's charms were not lost on me, nor were those of Yvonne Craig later. I enjoyed the actors playing the villains. The colors were lost on me as I didn't have color TV at the time…"
"The problem with Eartha Kitt wasn't her acting or anything like that. It was the complete absence of any sexual tension between her and Batman. Her Catwoman might as well have been Mr. Freeze.
It's not her fault either. I'm sure…"
"That was a large part of the attraction of the show: that everyone on it and watching it was having fun. The death traps were nice, the villains were great and the bat mobile was the coolest car to come out of the 1960's, but in the end…"
"Over the weekend, I finished my “marathon” watch/rewatch of Batman (’66). For the first several months I was watching 2 episodes a week (on the weekend); then I binge-watched most of Season 3 over the last three Sundays.
"I should have had more faith in the writers that they wouldn't do the obvious.

Thanks fot the welcome! Man, you ARE old! I don't even want to think about how long I've been writing my column. I figured I had a half-dozen topics tops, but they just keep coming. I'm glad you enjoy it.

I imagine all of us leave a bigger wake than what we realise. But it's nice to, every once in a while, have somebody tell us so. I'm glad you enjoy the column. Many moons ago, when Rich Lane approached me with the idea, my first concern (after wondering if there was enough material to keep a Silver-Age column going for long) was if anybody would have any interest in reading it.
The hit-counters tell me that somebody's out there reading it, but it's an especial treat to get a note like yours. I completely understand the business about not saying anything unless you have something to say. In reflexion, I'm the same way.
