Episode Title: The Bloody Tower
Original Airdate: December 7, 1967

Well, it’s time to wrap up the Caped Crusaders’ adventure in Londinium. Considering how lackluster the first two episodes of this story were, I think we’re all pretty anxious to get back stateside. But first, Batgirl, who has been captured by Lord Ffogg (Rudy Vallee) and Lady Peasoup (Glynis Johns), needs saving. Let’s see what happens in the conclusion of our British adventure, The Bloody Tower. Continue reading Batman S:03 E:13

Episode Title: Return of an Old Friend Part 1
Original Airdate: February 28, 1994

Over the course of the last 40+ episode of Power Rangers there is one big question I’ve had, “don’t these kids have parents?” I mean think about it, giant monsters attack Angel Grove left and right, yet we’ve never seen any sign of parental units for any of our five teenage heroes. We’ve seen plenty of uncles, but no actual parents. That changes now in today’s episode, Return of an Old Friend part 1. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:49

Episode Title: The Foggiest Notion
Original Airdate: November 30, 1967

If you recall, our last adventure in Gotham…uh…actually didn’t take place in Gotham. We all headed off across the pond to Londinium and…actually…not a lot happened. Episode one of this three-part adventure was a whole lot of setup and not a lot of action. Let’s find out if things get better in part two of this story, The Foggiest Notion.

Episode Title: The Londinium Larcenies
Original Airdate: November 23, 1967

It’s not unusual for classic TV show casts to spend an episode or two visiting some far away location. The cast of I Love Lucy famously went on a trip to Hollywood. The Facts of Life went to Paris and Australia. The Brady Bunch even visited such exotic locales as the Grand Canyon, Hawaii, and Cincinnati (remember the King’s Island episode?). Well, it turns out that even Batman stepped outside of Gotham City for a three-part episode during the final season. Thing is, though, they didn’t actually travel anywhere. We’re still locked in the backlot, but this time the sets play the part of the city of Londinium (not London) in merry old England. Have your passports ready for The Londinium Larcenies.

Episode Title: Plague of the Mantis
Original Airdate: February 17, 1994

Our adventures with evil members of the animal kingdom continues with this week’s episode of Power Rangers. This time we have a monster insect, and if you’re going to have a monster insect…this is the one to pick. Let’s face it, Mantis’ are scary. The female eats the male after bumpin’ uglies. I doubt we’ll see any of that in this week’s episode, Plague of the Mantis. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:48

Episode Title: Surf’s Up! Joker’s Under!
Original Airdate: November 16, 1967

Well bat-fans, we have reached an important moment in our look at this classic show. Our episode today may be the single most memorable episode of the series. In many ways it sums up everything that is wild, wacky, and wonderful about this particular incarnation of the Caped Crusader. Appropriately, it pits our hero against his greatest foe, the Joker, whose scheme involves taking over the world of surfing. Yep, our heroes are hittin’ the waves in the classic episode Surf’s Up! Joker’s Under! Continue reading Batman S:03 E:10

Episode Title: Reign of the Jellyfish
Original Airdate: February 16, 1994

After the last episode, where we batted the insect kingdom, this time we face a meanie from the underwater kingdom. Though, he’s not in the water at all in this episode. Get ready for a jellyfish that likes dry land in today’s episode…Reign of the Jellyfish. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:47

Episode Title: How to Hatch a Dinosaur
Original Airdate: November 9, 1967

If you recall, last time we visited Gotham, our heroes had to face not one but two villains in the form of Egghead (Vincent Price) and Olga, Queen of the Cosacks (Anne Baxter). However, they both managed to get away. We didn’t really get a cliffhanger, but we were promised their return in the next episode. Well, here they are with a brand new scheme which has nothing to do with last week’s story. Get ready for How to Hatch a Dinosaur. Continue reading Batman S:03 E:09

Episode Title: To Flea or not to Flea
Original Airdate: February 15, 1994

Quite a few of the monsters featured on this series have been based on animals. There are a lot of vicious creatures out there in nature, after all. Sometimes, though, the makers of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers had to turn to some lesser members of the animal kingdom. So, in this episode the rangers are going to get fleas in To Flea or not to Flea. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:46

Batman S:03 E:08

Episode Title: The Ogg and I
Original Airdate: November 2, 1967

Of all the villains that were created specifically for this series, as opposed to first appearing in the comics, the one that seems to get mentioned the most is Egghead as portrayed by Vincent Price. He first appeared in the second season and is back again here in the third. Only this time he’s joined by a new villainess, Olga, the Queen of the Cossacks played by Academy Award winner Anne Baxter. Here they come in The Ogg and I. Continue reading Batman S:03 E:08
