The third and final season with the Dynamic Duo arrives on DVD.

This is the season that Batgirl was introduced into the show. I happen to think Yvonne Craig, whop passed away a few weeks ago was one of the sexiest super heroines ever to appear on TV, and watching these again after so many years, I find that opinion hasn't changed.

The episodes are as follows...

ENTER BATGIRL, EXIT PENGUIN 9/14/67.....the Penguin plan to gain immunity from the law by marrying Commissioner Gordon's daughter, unknown by him that she is Batgirl.

RING AROUND THE RIDDLER 9/21/67...The Riddler attempts to take over the boxing world in Gotham City with the help of a very sexy woman named The Siren. This was the first appearance by Frank Gorshin as the Riddler since season 1.

MINERVA, MAYHEM AND MILLIONAIRES 3/14/68....Minerva (Zsa Zsa Gabor) uses her "Deepest Secret Extractor" to steal the fortunes from various millionaires in Gotham City. He next target is Bruce Wayne.

And so that ended the series that ran for three years and took America by storm. By season three things had changed a lot and while Batgirl was a very welcome addition, one could tell the scripts were not well thought out and the budget was cut to a very bare minimum.

However, i still like the show very, very much and cannot recommend it enough. This show is another entry in the DVD of the year sweeps in my opinion. RECOMMENDED!!
