It's day two of our week-long look at the Batman 1966 series and John and Dan Greenfield of the 13th Dimension website take on the gadgets of the series. As much as everyone likes to point out how much Star Trek was so futuristic, here was Batman, set in modern times, and featuring a number of futuristic gadgets.
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.
