Of all the incarnations of Batman through the years, none have had the impact like the TV series that ran from 1966 to 1986 starring Adam West and Burt Ward. Due to various issues this series has been the one Batman related thing that fans could not add to their collection until now. The beautiful limited edition Blu-ray set of the complete series was amazing, but with the high price on this amazing collection not everyone could get their hands on it. Thankfully, Warner Brothers made sure to break the release up as well in a more affordable set with the latest being Batman: The Complete Third Season on DVD.
In case you are one of the few left in the world that never tuned it to the same bat channel at the same bat time over the years, the series follows the dynamic duo as the race through the streets of Gotham City in the Batmobile in an effort to thwart he efforts of a rogues gallery of flamboyant arch-villains. This series was well known for its campy take on the character, but still delivered all the fun and brilliance that fans came to expect from the series. There are numerous moments where they work in a lesson of some kind, usually with Batman correcting Robin in some way that is both funny and maintains some value to kids that are watching the show. The story arcs throughout the series were actually pretty well crafted and executed, with really only the dialogue being the silly nature of it all. West’s overacting sells the character like only he can and makes his Batman both perfect and laughable all at once, making it still standout more than any other Batman in history. What really helped this series to stand out was the villain of the week with each of them being the real standout of the episode. This collection features a wide variety of both returning and new villains including the Penguin, Egghead, Mr. Freeze, Shame, Calamity Jan, King Tut and more that are over the top and showcase the perfection of the series. This will no doubt be a must have to finally complete the much beloved series that fans waited so long to get their hands on.
Fans have eagerly awaited this release for years and now the wait is over. This collection features the final 26 episodes of the third and final season as well as fun special features that takes you further into the series that is sure to be a must have for any fan of the series and the world of Batman. Join the Caped Crusaders war on crime when Batman: The Complete Third Season hits DVD on November 3rd and don’t forget that you can still grab Batman: The Complete Television Series Limited Edition Blu-ray, Batman: Complete Series DVD, Batman: The Complete First Season, and Batman: The Second Season Part One and Two available now from Warner Brothers Home Entertainment.
