Season Two Revisited
18 August 2018 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

Shane (Cliff Robinson) appears for the first time in season three.

Many people (even Adam West) have noted that the problem with season three is that it was so fast paced with short 25 plots....there was often no time for the silly small talk we got in the first two seasons. Well this two-parter proudly returns all that campy pointless chit chat that has been sadly missing sometimes (but not all the time) in year three.

This two-parter is basically just a good old laugh and I might add that part two is even more funny than part one.

Note: it you look carefully at Shane's hide out you can see that large stair case prop in the background, which was seen only in the recent Londinium three-parter.
