Not So Thrilling Year Two Show
26 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

At this stage in the game, Batman had jumped ship into a new genre called situation comedy. Oddly enough, in the same 20th Century Fox studio, Lost In Space was also turning into a sit-com at this exact time.

Things get so silly at one stage I almost expected a laugh-track to be heard! The scene with Batman and Robin reacting to the laughing gas is so bad I almost wanted to switch it off! Granted, the odd laugh can be found from Vincent Price's campy acting, helped along by a very light hearted Nelson Riddle score, but this is not how I like my all-mighty favourite - Batman - to be.

But don't let this turn you off season two all together, several great episodes can be found: all the season two Joker shows are just fine and the season improved all together towards the end with the last seven two-parters (14 episodes) being rather cool.

I guess this episode might be of some interest to the younger crowd as they can now see what Vincent Price actually looks like after hearing his voice in Michael Jackson's Thriller.
