I learned that last night the amazing wonder funny Adam West passed away at the age of 88. West played Batman in what is to date the only live action Batman TV show for 3 seasons between 1966 and 1968 and one movie. Late last year West reunited with Burt Ward (Robin) to star in the animated Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. Batman 1966 was a touch stone of mid-60s swinging culture and of high camp. Adam West left an indelible mark on Batman and the wider culture, he will be missed.
