There are no discussion questions, but I hope we’ll all be talking about it while it’s going on, so it may be easier to use 2 devices.

This’ll be my first time watching this, so I hope it’s really good! I don’t see how it could be bad if it’s with the Batman '66 cast!

Watched it when it first aired and saw it again within the last year. Great stuff.

Dopey enough to roll your eyes at, but fun. Impressive that they managed to recreate one of the most expensive series from the 1960’s convincingly on a lean TV movie budget.

As I recall, the Falseface episodes were a big influence, but I can’t recall how. The first episodes of the series were Riddler episodes, so they give those some attention. So if you wanted to do additional homework beforehand, I’d watch those

Adam West hadn’t been Batman in live-action since the 1970s, and he had last voiced him in the 1980s. So it had been a while. (But he did play the Gray Ghost in the interim, of course.)

Something…Clooney-ish.
