There's one guy who didn't need a cowl to scare people.

To be fair, the pilot is pretty dark compared to the rest of the series. Bruce Wayne even broods for a scene.

Careful Lorenzo, that's quite a drop!

I was a little kid when Batman the TV series came out. The impact that it had on the elementary school that I attended at the time was extreme. It was an absolute phenomenon. Almost all the boys went around singing the batman theme song and punching the air or doing karate kicks. Some kid in my class was made to stand in the corner for going "holy dull pencil, batman" when somebody went to use the pencil sharpener. I had done something wrong and was grounded from watching television for the first month it came on, so I had no idea what the hell was going on.

I couldn't understand why my parents kept laughing.

And that's a pretty impressive list of films he wrote as well. Parallax View opens with a nice set of bewbs.

Playing "Batman" got banned at our school because boys would wear just the hood of their coats and tie that and let the coat go flopping around as the "cape".  The administration  didn't say anything about all the mock fights we participated in, but they were scared the coat would get caught on something and choke us little shavers.

I'm just here to complain that the '60s Batman TV series should still be broadcast on network TV or basic cable. Also, it needs to have its DVD/BR release along with WKRP. ... Nevermind, they've apparently finally secured the DVD rights.

The closest analogue I had to that as a kid growing up was the first episode of the Simpsons. It was like a bomb went off in my 5th grade classroom and it dominated the class discussions for the rest of the school year.

I would like to welcome myself to Fark by saying... I don't always enjoy the mocking of dead people.

/Loved the Batman TV series

FTFA: 'When Dozier had an idea to do an hour show called Number One Son, about the offspring of the great fictional detective Charlie Chan, he asked Semple to write the pilot'.

The screen test for Number One Son:

They said, 'This is very embarrassing, but it has been decided that we don't want any stories with an ethnic hero. Period. That's the end of it. Number One Son is dead.'

Absolutely and besides that it's a really, really solid thriller.

I saw it in the theater back then. You are correct, and it didn't matter.

Just saw The Parallax View two weeks ago.

As dumb as Beatty looks it's a very good movie.

Plus 'Three Days of the Condor' AND 'Pappillon'?

That's one heck of a career you got there, Lew.
