Adam West was the first live action Batman that I can remember seeing. Up until then it had been Justice League and Scooby Doo crossover cartoons. Although the show was long over by the time I started watching it left a undeniable imprint on my DNA. I think most fans of the show really gravitated towards the joker. No surprise there. My favorite episodes though were the riddler episodes. West’s Batman made solving the most ridiculous riddles a breeze. West seemed really have some disdain for the role after the series ended. He was always looked at as that goofy Batman. It was good to hear late in life he came back around to really embrace that role and past. For me Adam West will always be The Batman.
