Batman returns? No, stick with the original

When I was just wee speck on the great tapestry of life (yes, an even wee-er spec than I am today), the highlight of my bat day was watching the title sequence to the original batman series. Not only did it herald thirty minutes or so or ‘pwoowwww’ action, but the menacing rumbling of the theme song was usually the perfect panacea to another dreary Wellington morning. But times have changed. Wellington is now one of the most cosmopolitan cities on the planet. And the classic Batman TV series has since been spun off into a handful of tepid movies. Blah. ‘Kttaannnng!’
