The Batcave Podcast has just completed its look at the first season of the 1966 Batman television series.  Over the course of the first 17 episodes, the podcast has taken shape into something John hopes everyone enjoys.  But there was a different format John considered before going ahead with the show you are listening to today.  He tried out this format by sitting down with author Dayton Ward and the two recorded a commentary on the first episode of the series.  Here is the first part, edited in its entirety for your listenening pleasure.  Stay tuned, Batfans.  Next week, we're looking at the 1966 theatrical release.

TheRiddler 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?
