Watch the credits on this week's episodes of Batman and you'll find the actor playing the villainous False Face is credited as "?". Which celebrity actor was convinced to play Batman's faceless rogue? We reveal all on this week's BATMANLAND podcast as we discuss the episodes True or False-Face and Holy Rat Race.

Joining hosts Dan and Fiona on the podcast is writer and host of the Queers podcast Benjamin Riley. Riley offers his thoughts on the show as a queer text and how the book Seduction of The Innocent may have had the opposite effect on Batman than intended.

We do want to hear what YOU think about Batman. Join the conversation about Batman online with the hashtag #BATMANLAND or drop us an email

Double episodes of Batman 1966 air at 6:30pm on SBS VICELAND. Of course, if you aren't inclined to watch the show at the SAME BAT TIME and on the SAME BAT CHANNEL, you'll be able to watch the series after it airs on SBS ON DEMAND.
