It’s kind of hard for me to undersell the impact Batman and Adam West had on me as a boy. I was six years old when the show premiered, and it was the first program I can remember seeing previews for and *begging* my mom to commit to letting me watch it when it finally came on. Like most every boy my age in the mid ’60s, I had a makeshift costume, a lunchbox, a plastic Batmobile, the Batman TV soundtrack (I still own the original LP), and of course the comic books, which never seemed quite as captivating to me compared to the vivid pop-art energy of the series. And hardly least of all, Batman introduced Julie Newmar’s Catwoman to me, who in turn introduced a whole other set of feelings to this six-year-old– fear and sex all rolled up into one inexplicable but ooh-la-la! package.

We've lost the great Bill Paxton, at the age of just 61...
Don't even know where to start. Perhaps with the basics: the brilliant Bill Paxton has died, his family has confirmed. He was just 61 years old.

Paxton passed away following complications from surgery. He leaves behind a body of work that’s as broad as it is brilliant. Inevitably, we gravitate towards his roles in Aliens and The Terminator (he was one of the few who could time after time stand the rigours of a James Cameron production, and come out eager for the next), but Paxton’s resume is full of favourites. Twister, Trespass and Big Love, for instance. Plus his character work in the likes of Apollo 13, Tombstone, Predator 2, Near Dark and Edge Of Tomorrow is memorable too. »
