Wonder Woman, Star Trek, Six Million Dollar Man & Bionic Woman, and The Omen- for a poor kid growing up in Boston (where there wasn't much to do except watch TV or go outside and find trouble), they were doorways into the worlds of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and comics.  And they remain the cornerstones of Paul K. Bisson's inner Fanboy.

Today, Paul is an actor, writer, independent media producer, and all-around Geek.  He still collects comics (mostly DC and definitely Wonder Woman), he founded the member-rich Bionic Fan Network  (http://www.bionicfans.net) and an ambitious online Bionic encyclopedia, The Bionic Wiki (http://www.bionic.wikia.com), he's the webmaster of The Omen Chronicles, the only fansite devoted to the Omen film series (http://www.omenchronicles.com), and he's developing http://www.fancommentary.com -- a social networking site where people can upload their own audio commentaries for their favorite movies and TV shows.

Paul is currently the narrator for Food Network's Restaurant Stakeout, the co-host of Cyborgs: A Bionic Podcast, and the voice of The Chronic Rift Podcast.

Where Everybody Knows Your Name?

So, the premiere episode of the podcast is out there and I'm hoping it causes the kind of stir that the premiere episode of the actual series caused.  But please don't take it this far.  I mean a club that offers nude girls AND Batusi...it's a bit much for me.

"Hi Diddle Riddle"/"Smack in the Middle"

January 12/13, 1966

The Riddler has plans for Batman in the form of a lawsuit claiming false arrest, but Batman knows the Riddler is not as innocent as he seems. Can Batman deduce the Riddler's scheme from the puzzles he's hidden inside the lawsuit?  Can he figure out that Robin isn't Robin?  And can we find all the ideas that would be repeated throughout the series that first led to its success and would ultimately lead to its downfall?

Joining John for the first episode of the podcast is author Dayton Ward.
