Storyline

Wealthy entrepreneur Bruce Wayne and his ward Dick Grayson lead a double life: they are actually the crime-fighting duo Batman and Robin. A secret Batpole in the Wayne mansion leads to the Batcave, where Police Commissioner Gordon summons the Dynamic Duo on the Batphone with the latest emergency threatening Gotham City. Racing to the scene of the crime in the jet-powered Batmobile, Batman and Robin must (with the help of their trusty utility-belts) thwart the efforts of a rogues gallery of flamboyant arch-villains, including the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler and the Catwoman. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Great TV show, but a travesty of the comics
29 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

Although I'm more into serious Batman, this TV show has a strange appeal for me. Maybe it's because I'm a Batman fan and love entertainment. I thought Adam West was good at portraying Batman (although I still think Michael Keaton is the best Batman). Burt Ward I thought was a good Robin, and he and Batman were a great team in that show together, the way they were fighting the bad guys, the way they were getting awards, etc. Every episode seems so fun. I also like the theme song for this TV show. It's so memorable, you'll remember it for years to come.

For serious Batman fans however, this TV show is nothing but a dumb-down mockery of the comics (mostly for what I said: entertainment). Even though it does seem like the comic is coming to life, it tones down the violence so that it would suitable for children to watch as well as adults and make it be laughed at. Also, it lacks any darkness Batman would usually associate with. If you want to watch serious Batman (which I prefer more), I recommended you stay away from this and watch either the two movies directed by Tim Burton or the latest two movies by Christopher Nolan. You'll just be offended with this.

Despite this, this is still a great TV show with memorable scenes and a phenomenon in popular culture. Because of what I said: I rate this TV show 7/10. I wonder how Bob Kane would have felt with this TV show, although he did one time say that Adam West was a buddy of his.
