Re: 60s Batman show rights issues resolved!

Honestly, I've begun to think in recent years that it's more a matter of when the rights would be cleared and a DVD release could be possible as opposed to if. A lof of infamous legal issues have been resolved over the past few years and we've been getting DVD releases people thought were guaranteed never to happen. Like the Doctor Who telemovie from 1996, for example.

I know a lot of people might enjoy that old show for nostalgia reasons and what not, but it's such a stain of camp and nonsense to the bat franchise that it's just going to be very painful to see it proliferated again after all these years. Especially now that the Bat is so well regarded thanks to the Nolan films.

I'll openly admit, I prefer the serious take on Batman seen in the Nolan movies or the animated series of the 90s. But this series is enjoyable in its own right and can co-exist without tarnishing Batman's popularity at all.
