As a kid one of my favourite shows was batman..Fond memories of a beautifully created chaos of sound and colour
Before blu ray and 4k this show was a sensation to my senses..always waiting for the next punch to see if it’s a whamm or a kapow (personal favourite)
These days the world of batman is serious
And he’s angry and dark
Yet back in the day Adam West’s batman was the man..batman.
No seriousness or darkness..
..just proper 60’s kitsch..low budget with ‘interesting’ fight sequences..then who cares..it was fun..the moralistic and clean living batman that Adam portrayed was the juxtaposition of an insanely bonkers world of low cost anarchy the producers created
For all those memories I was saddened to read of Adam West’s passing, he played a tongue in cheek character that brought enjoyment to the masses
Rest in peace Adam West you brought humour to the world
