Re: Adam West on PBS, January 29

I just saw it, and it was enjoyable, though I think I learned more about the other shows than I did about Batman , since I know so much about the 1966 series. I did catch the mistake about the number of episodes for each show, of course. Decent show, though it did not go so much in depth as I would...

Re: Happy B-Day to the 1st BATMAN

I know I am late in posting this, but I also send my greetings to Mr. Wilson! IMDB.com has him listed as being born in 1920, but no matter. The father of James Bond producer Michael Wilson, he was a major inspiration for me when it came to playing the Caped Crusader for my fan film. Here's thinking...

Re: Should Adam West have been on the original The Twilight

Adam should have been on that show, period. Recently, I posted a listing of performers who should have been on that series, and I included many who had roles on the 1966 Batman series.
