It's another three part adventure story as The Penguin and Marsha, Queen of Diamonds team up with a scheme that could only happen in Gotham City.  For some fans, this is another example of where the show has been failing in its second season, but as John and his guest discuss, there are a number of elements that elevate this story if one looks closely enough.  In some respects, it has the markings of a first season episode and at the same time, it's got some of the goofiest bits you would find in the third season episode.


Joining John to discuss this episode is professional photographer and co-moderator of the 66 Batman discussion board, Ben Bentley.

"Ben Bentley is an internationally published music photographer and Bat-Fan based in the United Kingdom. When Ben isn't behind the camera, you can find him sharing his lifelong love of Adam West's TV Batman as a co-moderator over at the 1966 Batman Message Board ( Having traveled to California several times to attend conventions and hang out with Bat-friends, Ben has been lucky enough to try on one of Adam's original screen worn Cowls, meet several surviving cast members from the show and even run up and down the steps of Gotham City Police Headquarters in his own Adam West Batsuit. 


You can keep up to date with Ben's photographic work over on his blog... or why not come and join Scott, Ben and the gang at the internet's longest standing 1966 TV Batman message board...


This episode of The Green Hornet aired on the Friday following the conclusion of the three-part Batman episode.
