Vincent Price and his bad eggs
25 April 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Ogg and I" promised to be an excellent storyline, toplining the return of Vincent Price as Egghead, the smartest criminal Batman ever faced. Unfortunately, the three episodes split up during this season saddle him with Anne Baxter's gorgeous but vocally challenged Olga, queen of Bessarovian Cossacks, who can't fight their way out of a paper bag. It starts off well enough, with Egghead kidnapping Commissioner Gordon and charging a tax on every egg eaten in Gotham City, supplying a diner cameo from Alan Hale (unbilled) as Gilligan! While Bessarovian ambassador Omar Orloff (Alfred Dennis) aids the Dynamic Duo, Alfred uses his keen sense of smell to help Batgirl try to locate the missing police commissioner by his cologne. The longer it plays out the less fun it gets, though Olga decides that Batman would make a good husband, as many as five allowed in her country! This two part broadcast consists of the first and third sections of the story, with chapter two "The Ogg Couple" oddly saved for later on.
