Batman: Smack In The Middle

BatmanThe second episode of Batman airs on ABC, a campy but popular take on the comic book hero starring Adam West and Burt Ward. Frank Gorshin guest stars as the Riddler. (Setting the pattern for the first two years of the series, this is part two of a two-part story, with a full story unfolding over a half-hour of prime time on Monday and Tuesday of each week.)
