Folks, please take the Galactica debate to a Galactica thread. Some of us would like to talk about Batman.

It was never as popular as the huge Sci Fi shows like X-Files or LOST. People shouldn't try to make it into some kind of cultural phenomenon.
It did have quite an impact within the scifi community though, and a lot of the actors from the show became more recognizable after BSG.

Okay, back to Batman for realz now.

The Cyons never had a plan, they were making it up as they went along!

Okay, now back to the topic...

Yes, he played the police chief in the pilot episode, but subsequently he was replaced in the role by a similar-sounding actor (Jesse Corti).

Unlike Batman, who's always well-prepared in advance.

Seriously, the whole bit about Batman always being super-prepared for everything may be a currently popular meme, but it was very much a part of the '66 series' schtick as well. Batman's utility belt was always pre-loaded with whatever incredibly plot-specific gadget or resource might be necessary -- even sardines to reward a helpful seal or a Bat Alphabet Soup Container and Batfunnel -- because, as he put it, it's important to be prepared for any situation. (Also his and Robin's utility belts followed cartoon physics, able to store impossibly large items in Hammerspace.)

What, you don't carry around aerosol cans of Bat-Shark Repellant everywhere you go?

^ On that note, I would like to recommend Why Does Batman Carry Shark Repellent?: And Other Amazing Comic Book Trivia by Brian Cronin, author of the equally entertaining Was Superman A Spy?: And Other Comic Book Legends Revealed.

Re: 60s Batman show rights issues resolved!

That's a great point Christopher! Ironically many of the fans who boast that Batman would always be prepared to win a fight with anyone, are the same ones who have disdain for the endless number of gadgets he had on the tv show.

So to get back to the original topic, has any details and pictures been released of this new merchandise yet?

This is still true of Robin today, I think, in the Young Justice TV show, and before in Teen Titans, with his seemingly endless supply of bombs, and even his collapsible staff, too.

^But it's not like he's reaching back under his cape and pulling out a big flat lucite Bat-shield or something.

^ True. Not Robin, but here's Batman with the Batshield.



Though, I actually kinda love Adam West's delivery in the way he pulls it out and puts it back away. It fits the genre of the show pretty well, at least.
