At Nostalgic Theater Podcast: A Discussion of Batman on TV and at the Movies

I hope readers will check out Zaki Hasan's latest Nostalgic Theater Podcast, here.  

Zaki and I spent a delightful hour together recently discussing Batman's history on screen, but also the changing face of expectations in terms of superhero films.  

The context behind the conversation was two-fold: the fiftieth anniversary of Adam West's Batman and the then-impending release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

It was a great chat, and Zaki is a true kindred spirit.We love all the same genre/cult programs and movies. 

Hopefully, we'll get together one of these days to discuss Space:1999!

  1. John extremely interesting podcast, if only you could do it every week. You and I are definitely on the same page regarding the superhero films and the new Battlestar Galactica. Like you, I liked the Bryan Singer Superman Returns being the third film in the Donner created trilogy of Superman:The Movie and Lester's[hijacked from Donner] Superman II. I also had problems with Tim Burton's Batman Returns and sadness that we never got the third Keaton film.

    I can't wait for the Space:1999 discussion on a future podcast. Your Exploring Space:1999 book should be discussed, because as I have said before it is an important part of my personal reference library.
