This should be interesting seeing as how there are no options to correspond to The Dark Knight trilogy, the most popular of the Batman movie franchises.

rocky-o, popular is an intricate term: it is very much popular to hate certain things amongst the mainstream audience. I honestly think that most of the time hate is either misplaced or totally undeserved, sometimes both. Cecil Trachenburg of "Good Bad Flicks" web-series is one of my favorite film critics/scholars because of his similar way of thinking: his "Exploring" episodes dissect movies which are often either underrated or downright considered bad.

Most of the time he actually manages to make your view certain movies in much different light which I find very valuable and captivating. A lot of movies you consider bad move to flawed when you consider production history and the fact that people still tried with passion, if result wasn't quite what they expected. It's often the case with the studio system which spares fewer movies from re-shoots, re-edits and re-writes, out of which even fewer manage to still contain director's vision etc.

i love your expose nikolay, but of course, i was simply referring to the box office take, that making money doesn't always equal a quality film...

In most aspects, The Dark Knight has the highest quality among Batman movies/shows, like being strong in character development among other things, but taking note of the few shortcomings is perhaps unpopular. I'm mainly just noting how polls that reference anything from The Dark Knight as an option will most likely see that particular option eclipse all others in support. (It's a natural enough phenomenon too that I could not honestly accuse the hardcore "fanboys" of being zealous.)

Just to mention: We learn at the end The Dark Knight Rises that the birth name of Blake is Robin, and his character shares some similarities to Dick Grayson (one of the Robins).

I'm not suggesting Blake.

May I suggest a few edits to the intro? (below in bold)

Bob Kane created "the Bat-Man" in 1939 and was published that same year by Detective Comics, which is now known as DC Comics. It was decided by Kane that Batman needed his "Watson" of Sherlock Holmes fame so along came Dick Grayson, AKA: "Robin" in 1940.

Of all of the pairings over the years, which has been the best Live Action Dynamic Duo?


I've only seen the Adam West pair but I have fond memories of watching the reruns after school, when I was maybe in first, second, or third grade, with my best friend. :)

I believe you left out a comma after fame and before so. Let me know if my head is discombobulated or correct in adding the comma!
No Whams or Kapow's if I'm wrong!

I watched B&R when it was on Twice Weekly. Wednesday and Thursday I believe. Same Bat Time. Same Bat Channel! Brand new no less!

I was 10 years old in Jan of 66' when it premiered.

As of recently, DC Comics officially credits Bob Kane AND Bill Finger as creators of Batman. So, maybe you should add Bill's name to your poll's opening. He was uncredited for far too long.
