"The Sorcerer's Golden Trick"

Aired: September 11/18, 1976

As part of the Krofft Supershow, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl ran for 16 weeks in two part installments.  The series clearly borrowed a great deal in terms of concepts from the Batman 66 television show.  John and co-host Kevin Eldridge of The Flopcast take on these episodes, discussing them scene and scene and exploring what the "Voltage Vixens" have in common with the "Caped Crusaders".

In the opening episode, The Sorcerer escapes from a maximum security prison with a scheme to steal all the gold from Fort Knox.  But there is something wrong with the scheme as it involves the use of mirrors.  John and Kevin discuss the episode, the guest cast, and try to determine how the Electra Comps work and the extent of their powers.  Let us know what you think by writing us here or at thebatcavepodcast@gmail.com.

When is a Batman movie not a Batman movie?  When is a wrestling movie not a wrestling movie?  When it's the Batwoman.  This 1968 gem may not have the elements one expects in a Batman ripoff film, but it still has much more going for it than the previous outings.

John and Robert Long are watching their Bat-Monitors and enjoying this movie with only a few reservations.
