A podcast dedicated to discussing the 60s Batman TV show starring Adam West? Pick up your excited jaw from the ground. BATMANLAND is here. 

As always on BATMANLAND, the panel discuss the episodes of Batman (1966) airing on SBS VICELAND this week (tune in Friday nights at 6:30pm for double episodes), while also offering some thoughts on their own relationship with Batman from movies, TV, comics, books, and merchandise.

This week, Dan Barrett and Nick Bhasin are joined in the BATMANLAND cave by the SBS VICELAND Channel manager, John Beohm. It was John's idea to program Batman, making him the ideal guest to explain how broadcasting the 51 year-old show fits in on the 'youth channel' schedule.  

We're starting with the first and second episodes of the shows first season - featuring Frank Gorshin as The Riddler in "Hi Diddle Riddle" and "Smack in the Middle"
