The Batcave Podcast: Episode 54 - "Louie the Lilac"
"Louie the Lilac"
Aired: October 26, 1967
Louie the Lilac wants to corner the flower market of Gotham City with the reasoning that if he does that, he can control the world. It sounds like something similar to what Riddler and Penguin came up with a few weeks ago, but in watching the episode, one finds it kind of makes sense this time. Also, John has stated he's not a fan of Milton Berle, but in discussing this episode, you'll see he actually appreciates Berle in the role of Louie. So what is wrong with this episode?
Joining John to discuss the good and the bad of this story is author Jay Smith.
