Fighting a head cold, I have been applying episodes of the 1966-68 Batman TV series like a much-needed medication. Imagine my happiness when I discovered this rare behind the scenes documentary from 66.
The program came under fire for its absurd humor mixed with action and drama, but this doc puts the series into its proper place in the pop art scene. Dozier’s unique slant and dulcet tones along with the writing skills of Lorenzo Semple Jr. were of course key to the success of the program (as pointed out by Adam West as well) but it was a combination of the visuals, acting, music and more that made an indelible mark on my psyche.
Back to my tea and cookies, but sadly no Aunt Harriet to deliver them.
