Lost in Space - TV Shows
As it was was with Batman, LOST IN SPACE was on penny pinching mold and despite the new theme song, that some site as boning, the financial aspect change of the course of the show: It resulted in the Jupiter II going from one planet to another and a curtailed amount of campsite scenes to probably cut costs. But the show really boned with the episode when the Robinsons retuning to earth...when World War II was just 2 years in the past thanks to a time warp in which their spaceship was caught in. -- Submitted By: (JamesGillespie) on February 4, 2012, 4:43 pm

Batman (1966) - TV Shows
In the beginning, Batman was all the rage with Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze and Mad Hatter: all of which were villians in the Batman comic book series. Of the villians that were not: only Egghead and King Tut deserve positive mention while most the rest failed to make the grade. You talk about the time in which it was made, it became escapist entertainment for many but as the Vietnam became a crisis so did William Dozier's ability to keep the show within budget. Don't blame Batgirl for the end of the show: The show was contracted from 2 episodes a week to 1 which also attributed to budget cuts and shortly after Walter Cronkite concluded the Vietnam war was unwinable, ABC though the same about keeping Batman on the air in March of 1968. And when it comes to comparing the Batman TV series to the Batman movies made since 1989, I don't know whether it's the sophistication of the bigger budget Batman films like The Dark Knight or the Del Rubio Triplets' effect on the appeal of the 60 Batman series but I think I find the recent Batman projects far more appealing. -- Submitted By: (JamesGillespie) on January 31, 2010, 9:23 pm
