I just came across this news item this morning. I hope it hasn't been posted elsewhere and I missed it.

I read it this week on Yahoo, but haven't seen much else about it. BBT is one of the few shows I watch. I can't wait for this episode!
I'm on Instagram as kustomjeff if you want to see more toy pics and some motorcycle stuff too. :-P

Leonard: We were on our way to the Chinese restaurant when we thought we saw Adam West, so we followed him.

Penny: Who’s Adam West?

Sheldon: Who’s Adam West? Leonard, what do the two of you talk about after the coitus?

Howard: My guess is, “Hey, four minutes! New record!” That’s why I’m the funny one.

Leonard: Anyway, we followed the guy to this garage sale, and they had the coolest stuff.

Howard: They were closing up. We got this whole box for sixty bucks.

Leonard: We didn’t even get to go through it all. There could be anything in here.

Penny: There a new girlfriend in there? ‘Cause you might need one.

Leonard: No. But there is an original final draft Ghostbusters script with actual slime stains! (Raj whispers to Leonard) Oh, you’re right, it’s Ghostbusters 2. Never mind.

Howard: Oh, my God. An Alf doll. When I was 11 my mother got me one to help me sleep after my dad left. I used to pretend that my dad had moved to the planet Melmac, and Alf was going to bring him back to me. But he never did. Where’s my daddy, puppet? Where is he?

Penny: That is so sad.

Sheldon: No, what’s sad is that you don’t know Adam West was TV’s Batman.

I just lost some respect for Adam West.

Nothing against him, but I just hate this show so much.

Ooookay. But look, the Big Bang Theory, in line with millennial comics fans, not grumpy old late 40-somethings, who generally fall into the Tim Burton and/or Bruce Timm Batman worshiper category, and who have hated the Batman TV series for a couple of decades now, appreciate the Adam West Batman. And The Big Bang Theory characters have never spoken disparagingly of it or him. Just the opposite! Do you realize what a breakthrough this has been? I can remember the TV series being utterly despised by all "serious" comics fans in the 90's. Adam West was a pariah! That cannot be overstated. Has Big Bang mentioned the Tim Burton Batman even once? Maybe when Sheldon was organizing "Catwomen" in his head and decided to put Lee Meriwether ahead of Michelle Pfeiffer! Without the "60's Batman friendly" mindset this show and the millennials who watch this most popular show on television(Yeah, I know the cast members are mostly in their 30's, but still), we would not have the toys, the DVD releases, and Adam West enjoying the acclaim he so richly deserves. Remember when we thought the show would never be released on DVD? I think to some extent Big Bang Theory should be credited in some small part to that happening.
Next week, the Dynamic Duo meets the Clock King!

I just can't stand how comic and sci-fi fans are portrayed on that show. I threw away my Green Lantern wallet because I got tired of people saying "big bang theory" every time I pulled it out.

Jim Parsons is one of the worst actors i have ever seen, he has all the personality of a brick.

They're laughing at us, not with us.

You’re certainly entitled to your own opinion Bat-Tiger, but I’m with PP and the others on this thread and I’m really looking forward to this episode.

FWIW, if there were a '66 Batman show today, I think Kaley Cuoco would make a terrific henchmoll. Attractive and funny.

I agree High C. Or perhaps a Batman Villainess.
