Holy Rewatch Batman! "Batman's Anniversary"/"A Riddling Controversy"
John Astin utterly fails to fill Frank Gorshin's purple boots. The Bat-rewatch does "Batman's Anniversary"/"A Riddling Controversy."

An excerpt:
It’s funny, “The Puzzles are Coming” / “The Duo is Slumming” feels like a hastily rewritten Riddler episode, and this one feels like a hastily rewritten Puzzler episode. They’d have been better off either (a) creating another new villain for Astin or (b) having Astin be the new Puzzler or (c) just bringing Maurice Evans back. I get wanting to use the Riddler, given that he was the most popular villain in the first season and movie, but it isn’t the character that made villain popular, it was the actor, and the story suffers without him.
