Hee hee!
7 September 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My husband saw a clip from this on the Adam West Bio and

hunted it down on eBay. It was worth every cent, and actually gets

funnier every time I watch it. It's obvious, if you know and

appreciate Conan OBrien's sense of humor, that he had a good

hand in the writing. Adam West is perfectly cast and for those of

you who thought he had no sense of humor about himself...just

watch. Words can't do it justice... down to the last detail, this pilot is

hilarious and if I think for too long about the fact it didn't get picked

up, I wnt to bang my head against the wall (or bette yet, bang some

network exec who makes these genius decisions against a wall).

I defy anyone with a sense of humor to sit through this without

giglling uncontrollably in the first 5 minutes (at least once).

10/10 stars. Hunt it down or wait till it's on Trio again...it's worth it,

trust me.
