Batman: Season 2 Part Two

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 7/25/15

This was a very fun show of my childhood, back in the 60's. It was insanely popular for about a minute. They even showed it for two nights at one point. Nowadays they would call it a "water cooler show."  Even though it was about a comic book superhero (which, back in those days was definitely only something kids would admit reading), it was a cool and hip show that used modern slang, guest-stars and music to appeal to teens and young adults. Pretty much everyone watched it, though, at least for a while.

Instead of making a kid's show, like they had done with "The Adventures of Superman," they made this show very campy and fun. Kids could still watch and enjoy it, but it definitely had many adult references. However, the show was so campy and had such bad acting, and it was pretty much the same idea over and over, that eventually, people lost interest.

If you weren't around then, you may wonder what all the fuss was about. The first season was the best, but it was still very good in the second season. I mean, if "good" is really a term you can apply to a show like this.

From what I've read, they started cutting the budget in the 2nd season, and it shows. It gets even worse in the 3rd season.

Unfortunately, they chose to release the second season in only 2 parts, and there are no extras or features. Although the shows are worth having, I would suggest that if you're a real collector, you buy the entire series instead of just each season DVD. That's what I did! I waited until Amazon was having their big sale, so it cost less.

Either way, I hope you enjoy it.
