But, I'm happy to report that Warner Brothers really spent the money and gave us fans the (mostly) definitive version of the series! It looks absolutely fantastic, and for hardcore fans of the Adam West's Batman, please read on.
Ever since this set was announced, many fans were wondering what it would contain. And while Amazon's description includes some of the details, it doesn't really get into the finer points.
Here's a list of what harcore fans of the series might care about:
1. Yes, the Batgirl presentation reel/pilot IS included! (This is the short, 10-minute film that was made to introduce the character to the network brass.). The picture quality of this film is not as good as the main series (with scratches and slightly faded color), but it looks better than what we've seen before, and it's uncut.
2. The set also includes the test reels with Adam West and Burt Ward, as well as the film of Burt doing falls/breaking boards with his hand. The picture quality of these films is quite good.
3. The two songs by Leslie Gore, and the two songs by Chad & Jeremy are where they should be in their respective episodes.
4. The episodes begin with the proper "in color" bumpers, and they conclude with the original 1960's 20th Century Fox Television logo.
5. The first episode is sans the "in color" bumper (which seems to be correct for that episode), and its weird out-of-synch sound effects during the opening credits are all there, just like they're supposed to be! (I had wondered if WB would have just used a standardized open credits sequence. I was very happy that wasn't the case!)
On a negative note, all of the original "next week's villain" previews, which had been rumored to be included, don't seem to be there after all.... We do get a few, but it's frustrating that most were not included... (Warner Home Video fumbled the ball a bit in this regard, as the previews definitely exist, and can be seen at places like YouTube.)
All in all, this is pretty much the version of the 60's series fans were hoping it would be. It looks absolutely incredible on blu-ray, and since WB got most of the little details right, most fans will be perfectly satisfied.
I am absolutely loving the individual shows, they are really that good, charming and funny, and the acting is incredible, so much character and charisma brought forth by the actors that made Batman the truly timeless classic that it is.
The box set packaging itself is out of this world. The booklets included are beautiful, full of information and rare photos, and augment the content in the best possible way. In the end though, it is all about the shows themselves, and one word can describe them; priceless. To get to watch them in stunning, crisp vibrant color is what we were all waiting for.
