    I'm glad that he got to live long enough for a critical reappraisal of his Batman. The 90s were really harsh on it, and you could tell from interviea that he took it personally.

  • Grey GhostGrey Ghost Registered User regular
    I loved Batman 66 as a kid, and then when I was an adolescen/teenager I decided I was too good for it and I needed my Batman to be taken SERIOUSLY not this goofy BULLSHIT
    and then in recent years, thanks to some stuff Chris Sims wrote and some urging from a few people on this forum I went back and found that they knew exactly what they were doing, and it was great, and I loved it

    I don't know if I ever went through a period where I disowned Adam West's Batman, but there was definitely a few years where I'd largely forgotten about it. It was amazing to revisit the movie a few years back and discover how purposefully absurd and weird it was and fall in love with it all over again

    I'm sure West was always in on the joke, but I think he might have had a Shatner-esque phase where he was a bit full of himself. Luckily by the time he was guest starring on Johnny Bravo, he had made the flip to self-awareness and it made him one of my favorite celebrities as a result

    I'm glad he got to see the Batman 66 show rereleased, finally, on Blu Ray and DVD. That only happened a couple years ago, and up until then the only exposure I had to it was the movie (which I loved since I was eight) and whatever random episode they'd show at four in the morning on TV Land or whatever

    Being able to go back and actually see all the great work that he and the rest of the cast and writers did was awesome for me personally, totally lived up to the heights of the movie, and greatly aided in the critical reappraisal of the show plus exposed a new generation to it for the first time in decades

    It really truly holds up as a work of deadpan parody, genuine comedy, and earnest appreciation of its material

    RIP, sir. You were our greatest Batman

    Him and Burt ward have a commentary track for the movie, and he talks about how they had wanted to reshoot the scene where batman gets attacked by a shark because of how bad it looked, and he fought tooth and nail to leave it because it was way funnier to watch him struggling with an obviously fake rubber shark

    It's also got some truly memorable performances in it

    Namely from Adam West and Frank Gorshin

    To this day I still remember two moments: Bruce Wayne being all "I'll kill you all" because when I was a kid I one hundred percent believed him, shit was intense

    And when Riddler accidentally knocks the Batcopter out of the sky, everyone else is flipping out on the Penguin Sub and he just turns away in complete shock, very quietly, "I got them...? I got them??"
