All these hotshots are all the same - young, dumb, and full of Bat fun! 

Surfs up for Batman and Robin this week as they go back to the beach for some fun in the sun. But they're not alone. Joining them down at Gotham Point is The Joker with a lofty plan to steal young surfers surfing ability with his new gizmo. This may be the most thrilling Batman adventure yet.

Even Batman knows that the bird is the word, so when there is trouble down at Gotham Point, Batman acts like a beach leech and grabs Bruce Wayne's youthful ward Dick Graysons surfboard to paddle out to sea.

Babs finds her inner Gidget

Barbara Gordon, AKA Batgirl, happens to be down at the beach with her squeeze, local surf legend Skip Parker, when the Joker and his goons turn up. Thankfully, she's packed her Batgirl costume along with her one-piece suit.

The Shoobies

Throughout the BATMANLAND podcast, Commissioner Gordon and Chief O'Hara have frequently been accused of being ineffectual, bureaucrats. And in this episode they are maybe even more ineffectual than usual as they watch on from the side of the local beach club - accomplishing nothing AND leaving the Commissioners office unattended.

The Podcasters

An amazing episode of Batman has the BATMANLAND podcast grommies Dan and Fiona drinking a few Coronas and waxing lyrical about the episode that has Batman challenging The Joker to a surf competition. Really, TV has never been better. They also chat about an episode that has Egghead and his Russian ladyfriend Olga try to hatch a dinosaur egg in modern day Gotham City - Jurassic World this is not.

Watch this week's episode on SBS VICELAND, then be sure to take a listen to the BATMANLAND podcast:
