Customer Reviews

How Disappointed.

I came across your podcast and I downloaded all the episodes. I was looking forward to watching my newly purchased blu ray series and listening to your review of each episode, but I have gotten really sick of hearing the sighs of how stupid the premise of the show is. Hearing the never ending gay insinuations between Batman and Robin are so tiresome. Why are you doing this podcast if the series is so stupid to you? The show was intended to be campy to appeal to kids and adults alike back in 66. I was hoping your podcast would be fun and entertaining but instead it's unlistenable. Your podcast is to be a weekly celebration of this amazing classic. Get rid of Holly and get another host who has an interest in the show. Thank you. Sincerely, Bryan N.

Dorky fun!

Full Disclosure - I am Ben's brother. However, he'd be the first to agree that if I thought the podcast was bad, I'd tell him so, and I wouldn't be writing this review.

Ben and Holly (and guests!) are clearly having a great time with each other, as they mercilessly tear into the (admittedly easy) targets the show sets in front of them. You can love a show as goofy as Batman without being blind to the faults in it, and that's what happens here. The glee with which they point out the insane contrivances of the series, their theories about the true masterminds behind Gotham's evildoers, and their resounding comdemnations of the Gotham PD all come through loud and clear, and that makes all the difference.

Campy Fun!

As a self-proclaimed Batman enthusiast, I can't help but hold a special place in my heart for Batman '66. That said, it was pure camp. It was for kids, as there weren't too many adults indulging in comics at that time, and the production value wasn't necessarily at the forefront of the producer's minds. There was tons of star power behind it, and it was just a good time. I think that's what Ben, Holly, and the other guests bring to this. A sense of fun about the ridiculousness of it all. I like that they are just friends sitting around talking about how silly the penguin's umbrella weapons are, the massive growth of Adam West's package from episode to episode, or what dumb thing Robin did this week. They've said things I've thought as I've watched. I mean, it's not like they're talking about Citizen Kane over here. It's Batman '66, for Aunt Harriet's sake! Cesar Romero refused to shave off his mustache! They just put white makeup over it! How can anyone take that seriously? So to the hater, I say, lighten up. Adam West even says everyone was in on the joke. It is possible to have a love of the source material and also poke fun at it. With all that said, you can bet I will most definitely continue to listen. Same bat time! Same bat channel!
