Yeah, yeah, yeah, for obvious reasons everyone is clamoring to rent and watch Batman Begins

Even the Tim Burton version of Batman is getting rented a lot, as are it's super lame sequels.

It happens. Watch, next week those terrible Mummy remakes will be in high rental demand. 

And for the record, I loved the new Dark Knight flick, though flawed. Maybe I’ll go into my problems with it down the road. 

Here’s my heads up:

The 60’s Batman TV show with Adam West is NOT available on DVD or VHS.... 

BUT the wonderful theatrical film spin-off of the Batman TV show is.

So if your kids or something are too young for the new movie (and trust me, it’s an ‘adult’ film) make em watch the hilarious 1966 flick where the Capped Crusader and his trusted teen flunky Robin take on The Catwoman, The Joker, The Penguin and The Riddler all wonderfully played by Lee Meriwether, Cesar Romero, Burgess Meredith and Frank Gorshin

It’s worth it just for the moment when Batman is forced to use the bat-shark-repellent on a dangling rubber fish with it’s mouth wrapped around his leg.
