Episode 69: "Mayhem, Millionaires & Minerva"
"Minerva, Mayhem and Millionaires"
Aired March 14, 1968
Minerva has a plan to rob the richest men in Gotham City while using her spa as a front for her operations. It seems almost like a plausible story for the third season. In fact, John went into it dreading it and then found in watching it and then talking about it with guest host, longtime Batman 66 fan, Robert Long, that it wasn't all that bad. Robert goes so far as to point out that the episode has the beats of a condensed two-part second season story. They also discuss the relationship between Barbara Gordon/Batgirl and Alfred compared with his relationship with Batman and Robin. It may be the final review of the original series, but it's not the end of the podcast as John explains towards the end. Thank you so much for listening and thanks for your continuing comments here and to firstname.lastname@example.org.
