John and Dan Greenfield of the 13th Dimension website complete the week of special podcasts by putting together ten stories from Batman 1966 that should be included in any marthon viewing.  As the DVD and Blu-Ray sets are about to come out and the holidays are approaching, maybe it's time to sit around the TV with the family and have some fun fighting crime with Batman and Robin.

 

Dan Greenfield is the editor and co-creator of 13thDimension.com, a website devoted primarily to comics and pop culture, past and present. To him, the basic food groups are Batman, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek (the Original Series), James Bond, the Beatles and the Stones. But if he had to he'd be able to subsist on Batman alone. Channel 11 in New York was his favorite syndicated channel as a kid -- you can guess why -- followed closely by Channel 5. Channel 9 didn't really enter into it unless he was home sick and there wasn't much else on. He's married to his remarkably patient wife Wendy and his best sidekick is his son, Sam. They have two cats,Lex and Zod.
