Very silly show.

Quite true to the camp Batman of the comics of that period. They were silly too. I prefer today's dark Batman.

It's funny, I like dark serious batman, but as a kid, I grew up watching re-runs of the original on Nick at Nite. I love his anti-everything bat sprays.

As a kid I watched the CCA gut any trace of plotting in comics without any understanding of what was happening.

From the ashes of the congressional investigations arose the camp Batman of my youth, and its descendant, the Adam West Batman. I loved the old batman and all of the silly giant props (personal favorite, a giant typewriter) but find the dark Batman a much more interesting character.

Were it not for Andy Warhol and the pop art movement, I believe that West's Batman, and many other camp shows of the era, would never have seen the light of the cathode ray tube.

And a happy POW! BAM!! to you.
