The Batcave Podcast, Episode 40!

Greetings, Bat-fans! It’s time for another scintillating installment of The Batcave Podcast!

That’s right, old chums: host John S. Drew marches merrily on with his continuing review of the classic 1960s Batman television series starring Adam West, Burt Ward, and cast of favorites. For the second season’s 21st story (and 43rd and 44th episodes overall), he’s joined by Gotham City 14 Miles editor Jim Beard as they discuss the return of the Riddler in “Batman’s Anniversary” and “A Riddling Controversy.”

From John’s write-up:

“The Riddler is back in town and he needs $3,000,000 in order to acquire a device that will give him absolute control over Gotham City. Can Batman and Robin solve his baffling clues in time? Will they realize the Riddler’s looking a little different this time around? The whole thing is heading for an explosive climax as John Astin takes on the role of the Prince of Puzzlers.”

As most folks probably know, John Astin had a pretty steady gig in the 1960s, portraying Gomez Addams in The Addams Family. Here, he dons the green tights due to a salary dispute between Frank Gorshin and the production. Gorshin would return for the series’ third season.

See what John and Jim think of these episodes: “Batman’s Anniversary/A Riddling Controversy
