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.
Here's an update on the set after actual delivery:
The Blu-ray completely lives up to the picture quality shown at Comic-Con. Colors pop off the screen, the image is sharp with no annoying noise or grain, even in dark scenes. For example, you can make out when Batman needs a shave, the natural grain in Batman's cowl, even the ragged threads of Batman's cape. For the first time, I noticed that Batman's "ears" are a different color than most of his cowl. Simply amazing.
Because the original show was not wide screen, on modern HDTVs, you can expect black bars on the side of your screen.
The seasons are individually-cased, and each season has disks that are color-coded, so you won't accidentally mix up the disks. Special features are on the last disk in the Season 3 set.
I can also confirm that the "Batgirl Pilot" is included in the special features, under the section entitled "Bat Rarities! Straight from the Vault". Also included there are Burt Ward's screen test with Adam West, Screen tests of Lyle Waggoner and Peter Deyell, and a tribute to James Blakeley, production manager on Batman and The Green Horner.
The Batgirl Pilot is not re-mastered, so the colors are faded with scratches and other defects visible.
The included Episode Guide is okay, but while it gives a short description of each episode, lists the villain, original airdate, writer and director, it doesn't list the guest star(s) for each episode. The actors playing the villains are named only the first time they make an appearance in an episode; subsequent episodes only list the villains name, which is fine unless you have to want to view a later episode and can't remember which actor is playing the villain.
This set is exactly what it was promised to be--the best color, the best imagery, the most complete set of the Batman TV-series ever. It's the pinnacle of what Blu-ray was meant to deliver. Gripe about the price, but it's well worth it if you love Batman and have a high-definition set. Five stars.
