    Default RIP Adam West

    Just found out that the star of the 60s TV series Batman has died at 88.
    He also guest starred as himself in the Mr Plow episode of The Simpsons and the voice of the mayor of Quahog in Family Guy.

    Very sad news. By far my favourite Batman. The 60s show was fun and didn't take itself too seriously, unlike the angst-ridden "dark knight" of today. Perhaps more true to the comic, but, for me, I so much prefer the 60s interpretation, and Adam was superb in his role. RIP Adam West.

    Really sad. This was the Batman I remember from early childhood and just loved the outrageous visuals and brilliant dialogue:

    "Robin: Where'd you get a live fish, Batman?" Batman: The true crimefighter always carries everything he needs in his utility belt, Robin."

    Far more entertaining than the grumpy, angst-ridden Batman of recent years.

    Yeah he was the Batman I grew up watching, I had a Mego version of him and a couple of his Batmobiles.

    I even bought my (nearly 2 year old) son a Hot Wheels of his version of the Batmobile to play with the other month. I also very nearly bought the Blu Ray set of the original series to watch with him when he was a bit older, no doubt the price of that will sky rocket now.

    /to the batmobile, he's gone.
