This year (2016) is the 50th anniversary of the Batman TV series. Yes, it's been fifty years since Adam West and Bert Ward donned the cape and tights and scaled that fake wall to our hearts. It's campy. It's cheesy. And it's oh so the 60s. Also, it'll give you headaches from all the face palming ridiculousness. But, I wouldn't have it any other way.

As a kid, I watched the reruns during the summer break from school. It didn't make much sense. When I watch the show now, it still doesn't make sense. But, I enjoy it. I accept it for what it is, a parody. It has to be. Who could take Shark Repellent Bat Spray seriously?

It's one failing is that it was too successful. The show's legacy is a tragic example of Poe's law. People mistook the parody Batman as the real Batman. And when I say people, I mean Hollywood executives. They kept making campy superhero movies afterwards thinking that's how comic books really work. The big problem is that they kept making campy superheroes well into the 90s. 

I can hear the cries now, "What about the Chris Reeves' Superman and Michael Keaton's Batman? They weren't campy." You're right they weren't. And, I thought Batman was the world's greatest detective. If you look at their sequels, they became campy and bad, real bad. Joel Schumacher's Batman & Robin bad. Case Closed. (For those of you who have never seen the movie or repressed it, you're lucky.)

But, let's not focus on the negative. Put on your cowl and tights and do the Batusi. Then after your court mandated psychiatric evaluation, you can watch the stunt doubles fight and try to figure out who is more crazy, Batman or the Joker.

Bat-PS. It's Batman, old chum.

Well the 60s Batman TV show was based on the Silver Age comic books and they where extremely goofy and over the top, it was not until the 70s and 80s that the Comic Batman got more mature and down to earth and well, Frank Millers take on Batman had something to do with the more grim and gritty Batman we all know and love today. However, I think that recently WB/DC is trying too hard to use the grim and gritty style of Batman for other superheros as well, not to mention that despite the grim and gritty, Batman is still human and that the 1989 Batman still had a lot of humanity, hell even Nolans Batman had that.

Also a campy Batman show thats like the silver Age can work, see Batman: Brave & the Bold, its funny, its witty and its campy and over the top without demeaning or degrading.
