“The Joker’s Last Laugh” arc is Lorenzo
Semple Jr.’s last writing for “Batman”, a teleplay from a
story written by crime novelist Peter Rabe. But
that story originally featured Two-Face! (Read the
treatment here. Thanks to High
C for providing!) The Joker version
contains at least one vestige of the Twofaceiness of the original
story, and also shows Semple seeming to comment on the sitcom that
the series had become.
Other topics include: how we, too, were driven crazy by laugh tracks; the history of the Jokemobile; the Iggy Pop version of the Batman theme (NOTE: has a few f-bombs in it); and of course, your mail!
