"How many actors have a shot at being a part of something that became a part of pop culture? It's been very rewarding. I'm not getting the 20 million bucks for the new movies, but at least I'm getting warmth and recognition from people wherever I go."

My mom went to Whitman college with Adam West.  He was not called that then.

He is my favorite Batman followed by Keaton. I watched reruns and his movie with my stepdad when I was younger. It's crazy that young people now know him as Mayor Adam West on Family Guy

I am more bummed out by this than Robin Williams passing

Heck yeah!

When we are back home, we don't have cable. Rather, we bought a box antenna at Home Depot.  The town we live in actually has quite a variety of stations to chose from.  Many of the "free on air" stations are geared towards the older population within our community (ME TV/NickAtNight type of shows).

Anywho, the last time we spent time home each Saturday evening was spent introducing the kids to 60's Batman  and 70's Wonder Woman.  We all loved it.

Bryce, have you caught   "Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders" yet?  It was direct top video Batman with Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar reprising their roles. Came out earlier this year.
