I explained who he was last night, out of the blue. I presume this killed him.

He was always the best Batman. I had the pleasure to meet him twice (once in costume) and I have a personalized photo of him hanging in my office at work. The only good thing is that great actors lik him will live forever on disc and there will be generations of new fans who discover his performance again and again.

There will never be another person who can carry a



like Adam West and crew. After 88 years looks like the biggest of the baddies finally got the last



RIP.

No, sarcasm and satire did not exist in the 60s. These actors were being serious.

Nope.

What people tend to forget is that everyone making the corny as hell Batman show was in on the joke. It was intentionally goofy...

The easy answer is that Adam West was a master of camp. ...According to the Hollywood Reporter, West said that in order to create any kind of comedy “one had to never think it was funny. You just had to pull on that cowl and believe that no one would recognize you.”
He was hilariously corny, and he knew it. They all did.
