In memory of Adam West, here’s a recap of Batman ’66, issue 27, featuring the debut of luchador Bane.
Bob’s Burgers is great. If you haven’t been watching, you should. This particular episode gives a brief glimpse of how incredible an entire wrestling-themed episode of Bob’s Burgers would be.
Title: El Chavo Animado
Bio: Disillusioned with the current state of lucha libre, and the fact that he doesn’t want to end up a broken and withered old luchador, El Justiciero decides to retire. But then he returns to the ring five minutes later to retain his stronghold on the Lucha Libre Championship.
Signature Move: Retiring then returning to the ring, like most retired wrestlers.
In this wrestling episode, Jane the Virgin tries to show us a glimpse of what it would have probably been like if Kharma had decided to continue wrestling while being pregnant. Spoiler alert: the baby bump would’ve been used as a foreign object.
Unlike most sitcoms, My Name is Earl had a high concept which centered on this low-life dude who wins the lottery, but then immediately gets hit by a car. Having learned what karma is, Earl creates a long list of all the people he’s ever wronged and plans to use his money to right those wrongs. In this episode he helps a woman become a Black Lady of Wrestling and also have a baby.
Settle in for a classic show featuring some old school wrestling with more comedic gags than a Colt Cabana match.
Title: Walker, Texas Ranger
Bio: Against doctor’s orders, the once-retired Cody “The Crusader” goes on to headline a long-awaited rematch against his greatest rival, The Warlock. Reports state that Cody was paid half a million dollars for his return bout, making it one of the largest paydays in both real and fictional wrestling history.
Signature Move: Overcoming an aneurysm.
