What is it about the 60's Batman show?

When i found that it was airing in the UK again i thought id tune in and honestly i thought it would be so bad its good or become a guilty pleasure and in many ways it is, the hammy acting, the ridiculous stories and the overall plot convience contributes to that (shark repellant) but ive found myself genuinely enjoying it and actually go out of my way to watch it. I cant exactly explain what it is whether its a charm about the show or what. Does anyone else feel this way? Also what are your thoughts on the show?

Re: What is it about the 60's Batman show?

It's because of Adam West and Burt Ward and the crazy colorful sets. The writing is just absurdist funny stuff most of the time. Then there is the great FRANK GORSHIN.

I can't stand the Riddler as a serious character, so Gorshin's over the top insanity is pretty much my favorite comedic performance ever...and the guy hadn't really ever done comedy before I don't think.

Yeah, it's the absolute absurdity of it all. It doesn't take itself seriously, and so neither do we, the audience. I'm not sure I know anyone that's watched it and hasn't enjoyed it. I always marked out for "Same Bat-Time, same Bat-Channel!"


Call Kenny Loggins. Cause you're in the Danger Zone.

Re: What is it about the 60's Batman show?

I would mark if someone made a new smartly written, well-acted Batman movie in a similar tone the 60s Batman had. I know if done properly it could be one of the funnest and action-packed experiences. Still love the Dark Knight, though.

This show was just classic. From the sound effects to Batman & Robin's lame lines, the cooky villains (lmao @ Mr. Freeze), the RED telephone, the gadgets, the detective work, etc. I had fun watching this show as a child.

Its weird because in a way i do kind of take it seriously even though i really shouldn't lol. Also Batgirl in that PVC was just wowza...



Surprised she could move in that thing, same applies to Catwoman.

Re: What is it about the 60's Batman show?

That reminds me - Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt as Catwoman! Both brought memorable elements to the role and made it their own. Julie embodied the character completely (for this specific Batman) and Eartha brought a sultriness only she could with her signature voice and purrr.

The show was pure campy gold. Everything that has been said so far is absolutely true.

Loved it when she showed up in episodes.
Because of the way she moved in that thing, led me to first notice girls as a young boy.
Good times...

Vincent Price also played Egg Head, a villain who just cracked egg-related jokes.
