As I child I remember catching the TV series Batman and even now thanks to my brother have the series that I can watch time and time again, looking back on the series, you can pick fault with the actors, the lines, the fight scenes, the plot holes but when one is a kid it was better than dinner with the family. And a big part of my childhood was thanks to this man, thank you Adam West for the memories…
